    Default Etransfer Scam?

    Hi guys, scratching my head here trying to understand a bit of a red flag.

    Have a guy who wants to use e transfer to buy my car, but etransfer is obviously nowhere close to going to cover the purchase price of the car.

    The shitty english obviously sets off my BS meter but aside form interac e transfer obviously not going to work where do I get burned here? Guy shows up to take car and promises to make like 20 etransfers or something to cover the price?

    I'm offering we get this transaction done via etransfer then we'll schedule pick up and delivery at your residence after the full payment into your account I will be responsible for the pickup and delivery . If this is accepted get back to me with your email and name so that payment can be made right away using interac etransfer thanks a lot. waiting to hear back from you.
    thanks guys

    Walk away, just walk away.

    Or tell him to bring the whole amount in cash or a bank draft.

    Tell him he can do a direct transfer into your account at the bank or take a hike.

    k that's my thought as well. BS detector serving me well.

    I will tell him we either meet at his bank to take out a draft or no deal. There are some other red flags here so i doubt i ever heard from him again.

    This BS is making me remember why i trade in cars lol, plenty of "interest" but like pulling teeth to get anything legit.

    how much are we talking here? He is offering to pay in full prior to taking the car, so can't really burn you.

    I've had a few payments of $2000 each until the product was paid then I delivered.

    Otherwise wire transfer is just easier.

    It just seemed too ridiculous to me to no post mostly haha, entertain is the wrong word. I am just always interested in how these losers actually accomplish these things.

    This can probably go to kijiji funnies at this point ( though notably this one was from autotrader ).

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    The fact you even posted this when he offered to do 20 e-transfers should make you feel a bit silly lol.

    Someone who is spending 70k but too cheap to do a bank draft is either a complete idiot or scammer.

    Have a good long weekend

    Common scam, send more than amount from a hacked account. Get you to transfer the excess to a "shipping" company. Then when the missing is found reported it's taken back, they're up the amount you sent to someone else.
