If you are selling your car via a classified advertisement or auction site, be aware of the following fraud scam:

Fraudsters may contact you through your advert, normally by text message and provide you with a link to a fraudulent website.The website may look professional and similar to the "original" website that you advertised on. It will explain that there is a 'potential purchaser' for your car. It will ask you to pay a small "arrangement" fee to ensure the purchase takes place by using an e-money method; which could be via UKASH or PAYSAFE vouchers, for example. It will instruct you to purchase the vouchers and may even provide you with a link to a list of the shops in your area that sell them. You are then asked to input the unique codes from the e-money product that you have just purchased. Once inputted your money is gone!

However urgently you wish to sell your car, do not be misled because of a need to sell it!
Do not pay an advanced fee for the sale of your vehicle. Meet face to face for an agreed sale and only accept cash
