    Exclamation *****Latest Scam - BEWARE!******

    Hi everyone.

    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.


    A Post-Wh0re is a user who's only aim in life is to increase his post count. He/she gets off by receiving likes and mentions, and considers his post count a medal on his skinny chest. A post-Wh0re is the human equivalent of Chihuahua..bickering pointlessly, effortlessly, permanently.

    There's a way around this issue: Dont pay any token money, first check the vehicle's condition, the documents, the engine/chassis nos and if satisfied then take advantage of the "unbelievably low price tag" by paying in full!.

    I have not seen anywhere a law in Pakistan that a car cannot be sold under a certain price.

    All of you are talking in open market, making your own guess about car value. There is no Kelleybook value in Pakistan. there is no official website which states a stock car's price or depreciated price by law.

    To talk so boldly about anyone selling lower than a given price you should have a written back up about actual depreciated price of a stock car.

    and there is none!
    only word of mouth. and a lot of word of mouth in open market.

    i can do this, i can do that, i can get this cheaper, that is not right, this must be wrong.

    all this without any written official backup found in Pk and no protection from salvage cars.

    In general there is too much discussion and very less outcome.

    Some of those adds with price way much less then normal Market price are because those cars has not reached our shores yet. It means the importers are selling there with bill of landing (B/L) so price includes only price of car with there profit and no custom. So people who are buying them has to pay custom on there own. It's sort of saving there invesment scheme by importers. In the end when buyer buys the car on (B/L), on arrival of car on port he pays the custom on his own. Sometimes I have seen people are getting a good bargain on those deals saving them about 6 - 4 lakhs then there normal market price.
    Never let your fear to be your desicion.
