Overseas Farm Equipment Buyers Scam

Farm Equipment Sellers BEWARE!

It has come to our attention that there is a scam where an overseas buyer, usually African, wants to buy your farm equipment and pay you with a cashiers check.  All fine and good, until you have shipped the equipment and the cashiers check turns up counterfeit! 

This scam is not limited to just farm equipment, but to cars and other items.  From the reports we researched, it seems that the items most vulnerable are those at or below $10,000 in value.  This is not to say that your higher valued farm equipment isn't vulnerable.

We ask that you please keep this in mind and use caution if you have posted or plan to post an online ad here or anywhere else on the internet. 

If you should be or have been contacted by someone that fits this description, contact your local authorities.

Here are some websites for more information.
