- If a vehicle is offered at a much cheaper price, ask yourself why. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
- Make sure the seller has a valid address and telephone number. Be wary of mobile phone numbers, always visit the seller at home, and never buy without seeing and driving the vehicle
- Be wary of buyers who want to buy the vehicle without seeing it, request upfront shipment payments or private information, display a false sense of urgency or unnecessary details – it could be a vehicle export scam
- Never wire money abroad as it is often a fraudulent seller
