Beware of fake motorhome buyers

6427e365-7707-4950-8604-996ec00f4ea4

Anyone selling their motorhome is being warned to beware of scam buyers after reports of fresh incidents came to light this week. The format of the current scams is that the buyer wants to pay by some form of online transfer but is unable to come to view the motorhome in person because they are overseas. In fact, the latest scammer claimed to be working on the seas, as an oceanographer. The scam however is always the same. The money appears to have been paid into your account, someone comes and takes the motorhome away - often an innocent third party - and then the money is claimed back and disappears, along with the purchaser and the motorhome.

Stay alert to buying scams with this guide to online fraud, which lists things to look out for. And remember, if someone says they are willing to pay thousands of pounds for a motorhome they can't view, it's very likely to be a scam.
