Cheque fraud: buyer replies to your advertisement, buyer is based outside Germany, pays by cheque made out for more than the asking price

A prospective buyer located outside Germany contacts the seller and typically does not hesitate to accept the purchase price. Using a pretext, the buyer wants to pay using a banker’s draft made out for more than the asking price, and wants the seller to return the excess funds in cash or by money transfer. Some days later the cheque bounces and the seller has no payment but lost both the car and the wire transfer in the worst case.

No money transfer!

Western Union, MoneyGram or similar providers are often misrepresented as escrow services when payment by money transfer is suggested e.g. for check fraud purposes. Online money transfer, however, is mainly intended for use by persons who know each other (friends, family). This type of transfer is not suitable for paying online car transactions, even if it appears that there is built-in additional identification.
