Keep an eye out for the following:

Phishing Scams

These scams involve fraudsters sending emails or text messages which seem to be from legitimate organisations, such as My105, your bank, or paypal asking for personal information.

We recommend you avoid clicking links in emails or text messages. Type in the address yourself and check the relevant website. If you receive such an email, check the "from" email address, if it is from a free email provider, this is a tell-tale sign, this may be a scam.

Report it to us, or the relevant organisation (your bank, or paypal for example). If you think you've seen or recived something suspicious, please email us: info@my105.com


False Buyer Enquiry

These scams typically involve fraudsters posing as interested buyers. Once they have made intial contact they go on to say they are buying the vehicle for someone else, or are working overseas, or on an oil rig. They typically don't negotiate on price and may even offer to pay more than you are asking. Typically they offer to pay via pay pal.

The "buyer" than claims that they have overpaid, either for insurance, customs duty or agent fees and then asks the seller to transfer the money via a Western Union transfer or a similair method. This is a scam - the seller will find the funds were never deposited.

Report it to us, or the relevant organisation (your bank, or paypal for example). If you think you've seen or recived something suspicious, please email us: info@my105.com
