Wise up friend. As they are folks out there that can easily scam you. Make sure you trace anyone that give you information about the car. And make sure that he's not a scammer.

How to avoid being scammed

  • Don't send money to anyone unless you have seen the car with your naked eyes and confirmed that it's for sale
  • Make a deal directly with the dealer. Don't trust anyone that will say he can connect you with a trusted dealer
  • Don't send money to the dealer untill he connected you with the owner of the car or company agent.
  • If anyone asked you to come to a particular place/state to see the car, make sure you survey the environment before you go there
  • Please If you're going, don't go there with liquid money/ATM card (I suggest you should send someone to represent you)
  • If you're buying from trusted website.
  • Make sure you follow them on all social chats e.g Facebook, twitter and Instagram to see their recent updates and people's engagement on their social channels. You can detect a fraud website through their social channels.
