Buying and Selling scams

Buying scams happen when you purchase goods online and the seller then disappears - leaving you with either no goods at all, or goods that are less valuable or significantly different to those advertised.

Selling scams can happen when selling items online. You may send the goods as agreed and never receive payment, or you may be tricked into returning an overpayment. The fraudster may send you a cheque for a greater value than the value of the item being sold. They ask for the extra money to be transferred back or sent on to a third party, for example a ‘shipping agent’.
