Conclusion

Overview

This scam template is distinctive with the index and contact page shown below:

Index Page

Contact Page

The menu ‘Our Equipment’ dropdown shows this party to be selling

This party spoofs real companies. Sometimes the spoof is not immediately apparent and only becomes clear in hindsight in victim reports (example: H & S Exports Limited spoofing Howard & Sons Exports Ltd) or when the companies being spoofed start receivign such reports.

We see regular alerts by the legitimate companies being impersonated.

Items offered for sale, are images stolen from advertisements of legitimate sellers and then offered cheaper.

He advertises on classifieds and the user complaints come later, after responding to these classifieds.

Some parties have reported this to their authorities.

Targets parties internationally, many in the European Union.

Conclusion

This party targets consumers internationally, offering high value vehicles for sale at discounted prices. To give themselves credibility, they regularly adopt the identity of a real company or a close adaptation thereof, using the same address.

The fraudulent seller claims these are vehicles taken back by the financing company, making the lower price seem plausible and a great buy.

To the casual user, trying to verify the company, it would seem that this company exists, especially where due diligence checks online shows there is a company at the stated address selling items like those advertised.

Some of the victims think it’s the real company that defrauded them. We see this in at least one instance where a victim tried warning the public – but against the real company, using their Facebook page. This shows the reputational damage this may cause to real companies. We also note the real companies putting up alerts, responding to being impersonated.

These are consumer traps that harm the reputation of real companies and can devastate famers or like. Hopefully the authorities will take a serious look at these soon.
