Details about this scam
This is what happened to a seller of a very popular vehicle that belongs to a major car brand.
Thus, it should be noted that the latter was quickly contacted by a buyer shortly after the publication of his ad.
The latter asks the person to make the purchase check for the vehicle. The day after this contact at LeBonCoin, he receives a photo of the check in question, giving him confidence.
But he wanted to call the bank from which the check was projected, but it was closed. A bad luck caused by a holiday and that certainly benefited the young buyer. But this could not have provided formal information to the seller. Obviously, the check was real, obtained through another ad copied by the sharks.
He calls his bank a few days after this contact at LeBonCoin, but they tell him bad news. In fact, he inherited a bad check and nothing can stop this scam now. And insurance does not seem to reimburse this type of scam. Because insurance has already confirmed that it will not cover what appears to be a fraudulent theft.
