I have been contacted by someone wishing to use a shipping agent and pay by cheque, how do I proceed?

DO NOT PROCEED. Use of a shipping agent and overpaying with a cheque for an advert is a typical '419' scam. This is where the potential buyer will send a cheque overpaying for the item, then request that you transfer some of the excess back to them. However, the scam works as the cheque will eventually bounce and you are left out of pocket.

If you have been contacted in such a manner, please contact Raced and Rallied and inform us immediately. We take pro-active steps to ensure that these types of people do not have access to the site and our users and endeavour to stay ahead of them, however, your help is much appreciated in this matter.
