Buyers - Payment Fraud
 
CarForSaleCyprus.com are aware of fraudulent buyers proposing companies such as PayPal as a method of payment, the often offer the entire value of the vehicle without viewing the vehicle. This is likely to be a scam, using accounts created with fraudulent credit card details. Always make sure an interested buyer always meets you and views the vehicle in person. Never hand over the vehicle keys until your bank has confirmed the full value of the vehicle has cleared into your bank account.
 
Buyers - Car Buying Companies
 
As a seller you may receive a text message from a car buying company offering to buy your vehicle for a reasonable price. Sellers are then invited to go online and enter their vehicle details. You will then receive an email with your valuation asking you follow a link to a website. You will be asked to fill in your details so the company can collect the vehicle. You will be advised that a “refundable” deposit will have to be paid via a Pay Point to complete the sale. You are told that you will receive the refund on collection of your vehicle. The reality is no one will collect your car and you will not get your money back.
 
Fraudulent Sellers
 
Fraudulent adverts are placed by thieves posing as sellers, often involving a hoax vehicle at a bargain price, a faulty phone number and demands to transfer money into a payment protection service or abroad.
There are a number of things to look out for:
*The vehicle is advertised well below market value.
*The seller will ask you to email rather than call.
*They will ask for money to be sent abroad or via a false “Payment Protection Service” using legitimate company names such as PayPal.
*They will ask you to use a Money Transfer service, such as Western Union, to pay for vehicles or to prove you have sufficient funds.
 
Please be aware of this as the vehicle will never arrive and you will be out of pocket. If you think you have been contacted by a fraudster please contact us.
