While car buyers and sellers deal with each other, there remains a high risk of scams performed by people having an interest to swindle both the parties out of money. But you can be the fortunate one to prevent any such scam having enough awareness. By being enlightened, you can make sure to use your judgment in the best direction while performing any car sale or purchase transaction.
bhphlist.com does not own, buy or sell cars. Our services only comprise listings of cars, details of which directly come from sellers and thus we aim to connect sellers and buyers. Since we are not car dealers, we are not responsible for any information about the cars listed on our website. Only sellers are accountable for it.
If you ever happen to receive an email that suggests that we are selling or buying a car, it is most likely bogus information. Kindly report it to us and to law enforcement.
We don't have warehouses to store and ship cars from. If you receive an email asking for payment for shipment of your car from the seller with the logo of Bhph list, please avoid it and report it to us and to law enforcement. Please make sure that you acquire shipping services from a reputed warehouse. In case, a seller recommends you a particular warehousing service, research on its originality. If it is found to be a bogus warehousing company, please report it to us as we want to ensure only reliable sellers are listed on our website.
Please keep in mind that we do not ask you for personal or financial details which imply that any email asking you for such details with the name of our company, logo etc, is counterfeit. Scammers sending you sham emails are certainly intending to deceive you to surface info like user id and password, bank account number, SSN, Credit Card Number etc.
You need not fear the fact that we would take down your listing if you don't provide us with financial details. We only will need your credit card details when you want to purchase an ad on our website. If you receive an email that you feel is a scam, please report it to us.
As we already mentioned that we are not car dealers, instead we simply show up sellers who can be contacted to buy cars. We do not prefer any seller or buyer nor do we encourage a purchase or sale of any vehicle. Any email with a fake claim of our company's name urging you to make a sale/purchase transaction can be fraudulent. We never send emails to buyers or sellers in the support of purchase or sale of a particular car listed on bhphlist.com.
You must avoid any email revealing such kind of false claims and report it to us and to law enforcement.
bhphlist.com puts up contests from time to time but never do we ask for money to let you participate in the contests or to claim the prize. Any email showing you up such info can be an attempt to deceive you for money.
Many scammers mask themselves with escrow service providers which hold back the payment of buyers until the sellers ships the vehicle to them. The scammers by purporting to be escrow service people intend to swindle buyers out of money.
