FRAUD ALERT!

We would like to bring to your attention the very real threat of a SCAM!

The Scam is threatening to catch out perspective Motorhome & Caravan Buyers up and down the country, who may think they are purchasing a Used vehicle  at a `knock-down` price,  that they have seen advertised privately through such media as Motorhome & Caravan Trader (Part Of The Autotrader Group).
Genuine vehicle pictures and descriptions for vehicles are being illegally copied onto such sites as Autotrader from genuine Motorhome & Caravan Retail outlets up & down the country,  and advertised at knock down prices with supposedly genuine reasons for a forced / quick sale.

Some buyers it has come to our attention have been close to transferring monies for a Motorhome or Caravan that they will never see, because the person selling the item doesn’t actually own it.

Motorhome & Caravan Trader have been advised on numerous occasions recently that this practice is rife, and whilst they can take down the ads as they come to notice, they seem powerless to `vet` sufficiently well the scurrilous individuals that are placing the ads and seeking to defraud in the first place.
The advice of the Police, who have likewise been made aware of the SCAM on several occasions, is clearly not to part with any money until you have met the seller and satisfied yourself that both they and the vehicle are genuine.

Alternatively,  make your purchase through a genuine bonafide dealership, where you have guarantees and peace of mind when entering into a purchase or sales transaction.
