Beware!!! He Who Has Ears........ by RoyalRoy(m): 5:10am On Aug 13, 2015
There are still people on this forum who are not aware of scammers who parade themselves as customs officers here on Nairaland, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms.

They offer a long list of cars with ridiculous prices. They offer to sell you cars without fault for half the market value.

Be aware now, that contacting these new sets of fraudsters have landed many into sorrow and regrets.

There is a new dimension now added to it now.
Apart from asking you to pay certain amount into their accounts for "processing" and all sorts, they are now beginning to kidnap people for ransom!!

A man went to see this "customs officer" on Tuesday to check on an advertised car only for him to be kidnapped by these elements.
He was made to withdraw the said amount of money he wanted to use in buying the car!!!

Now this is a word of advice to buyers of cars, either Customs or regular seller.

1. Never go to buy a car alone. Go along with someone either your mechanic or someone who can be trusted.

2. If the car is not with a dealer, Don't meet with ANY auto dealer in their house or other private spaces. Ask that you two should meet in the nearest open space close to where their car is.

3. Endeavour to make sure you are not carrying physical cash along to buy a car. There are banks almost everywhere with many options for easier payments.

True!!

A greedy person wants to buy a car at ridiculous amount that doesn't even sound reasonable.

Before you purchase a car, do a diligent market survey of prices and know the price range.

When a deal is too good to be true, then its not good and not true!!!
