After advertising the sale of your vehicle, you receive a phone call from a potential buyer. The caller claims to be unable to collect the car personally, suggesting to arrange pickup by a forwarding company. To win your trust, the person suggests to send you a payment confirmation from an online payment service in advance. On the arranged date, the assigned forwarding company has someone pick up the vehicle against a receipt. Subsequently, the fraudster denies ever having received the vehicle and “freezes” the supposedly transferred money. In this way, the fraudster undermines the basically useful buyer protection of the online payment system. However, since the receipt from the forwarding company is not suitable to prove beyond doubt that the buyer did actually receive the car, the payment is usually refunded to the “buyer” after a few weeks. Should a potential buyer propose this procedure, you should actively address the problems involved. Insist that the buyer pick up the vehicle personally and sign a sales contract with subsequent payment in cash. If the person refuses, you should become suspicious and terminate your contact with them.
