Watch Out For Fraudulent Truck & Trailer Sellers

New Fraud Alert 6-26-2018

We fell victim to a sophisticated wire transfer fraud scam. A hacker gets between us and our vendor or customer. The hacker sends his wire instructions so he gets the wire.

We wired a large sum of money to the hacker and it is gone.

One of our customers fell for this scam and wired us funds but the hacker was in the middle and got their funds.

DO NOT SEND US A WIRE WITHOUT CALLING US TO VERIFY!

Our wiring instructions have not changed. If you get wire instructions that are different from what we have always had it is a hacker and he is trying to deceive you!

I can share a link to the scam that a law firm investigated and explains it in detail.

Please feel free to reach out to me for details.

My name is Eric Robert! I'm in the (U.S Army-E-3 Private First Class) and am not in town for the moment as am currently in base for now.

I want to buy this for my son as a birthday surprise gift and he's not aware of this. So can you assure me i wont be disappointed buying this from you ? I have a few questions for you about it.
Whats its condition, any damages?
Are you the original owner and why are you selling it ?

A Trucker To Trucker seller recently reported they were sent a text message from a scammer. The number was local to the sellers area. The text inquired if the truck was still for sale and requested a condition report. He wanted to use Paypal to send the money and requested the sellers drivers license number. THOSE TWO THINGS ARE RED FLAGS!

This scammer offered a full price payment without seeing the truck and said a "Transport Team" would pickup the truck, those are warning signs too! Be aware of anything too good to be true!

 

More Fraudulent Truck & Trailers Scams

The latest scam is using Amazon Payments as an invoicing system that uses wire transfers to get deposits or the full cost of the vehicle. Amazon Payments has nothing to do with wire transfers. Most of these trucks and trailers are "Too Good To Be True" and all involve wire transfer. Do not make a deal like this, call Trucker to Trucker's support line to question authenticity at 800-240-5811!

One Crime Ring Gone For Good!
