It is important to be vigilant when buying or selling a vehicle online. There are a few indicators to look out for:
  1. Is the price of the vehicle much lower than other vehicles of similar years/models? If so, why?
  2. Can you speak with the seller – If not - why not?
  3. Is the content of emails received from buyers/sellers suspicious? Be aware of emails which contain incorrect spelling, punctuation and requests for your personal information – it could be a scam.
  4. If buying: Don’t hand over any money before you’ve seen the car – cash is often the best form of payment. Avoid giving personal information out over email – Carzone will NEVER ask for your personal details via email.
  5. If buying: Check the seller has a landline number and only arrange to view the vehicle at their home address.
  6. If selling: Never let a buyer test drive your car alone. Take the keys out of the ignition and keep hold of them when swapping seats.
  7. If selling: Avoid letting the car go before receiving full payment into your bank account and make sure it’s available to use – check with your bank first. Try and receive payment inside a bank for a safe sale.
  8. If you have any queries about a buyer/seller that you think maybe suspicious please contact us by clicking on ‘Report this advert’ at the end of any advert you are viewing.
  9. NEVER click on a link that has been emailed to you if you do not know / trust the source eg. a link that is sent to you in an email from a seller or buyer
