Offers when selling your car

Updated: 8/26/2014

The fraudster will offer you more for the car than the asking price. He will then tell you that his shipping agent will pick the car up, and then he will offer to pay by cheque. 

When you respond, you are told that a cheque has already been made out to more than the asking price, for an amount which includes the shipping fee and asks you to send this fee to the shipping agent by money transfer or cheque. You will find that this payment cheque will bounce, while the fraudster is out of pocket for the shipping fee.
