There's a new scam which uprooted recently on a lot of website and in the last two days has attacked PakWheels as well.
The scammer posts an advertisement for a car by creating a thread. It is mostly one of the 4,5 major European brands i.e. BMW, Mercedes, Audi, mostly less than 5 years old.
The things which strike you first are :
- New UserID, freshly created, mostly with less than 10 posts and less than a couple of days old at PW.
- Foreign License Plate
- Photos from outside Pakistan
- Unbelievably low price tag
You are told that the car has been recently imported and has been cleared from customs and all you need to do is to get it registered on your name.
What actually happens is that you pay the token money and never hear from the person ever again.
Please beware. Kindly report if you see such an advertisement by pressing Report Abuse button.
