A Gulf national intended to sell his car gets caught in a massive scam. The car buyer gave him a check that can be cashed only after a 100 years, according to the Local newspaper report.
He placed an ad on the website “Vehicle for Sale” so he could raise money for his wedding.
Within a couple of hours a man contacted who was willing to buy the car as early as possible. He further elaborated that he worked in a showroom and wanted to examine the vehicle early. He also added that this model is quite popular among consumers.
“After two days, the buyer called again for the completion of the transaction and the whole buying process as well decided to meet at a registration center for vehicles in a City,” said the victim.
I reached the place where I was supposed to meet the buyer. After examining the vehicle, he agreed on purchasing the car. He gave me a cheque with the decided amount written on it and I signed all the documents to transfer the ownership,” he described further said.
A week passed after the deal when the seller went to cash the cheque. The bank employee told him that his cheque was dated in 2115 which is about 100 years later.
Thinking that this could be a minor mistake, the seller called the buyer to check the date again and correct it.
But still the buyer told him that he had mentioned the correct date on the cheque. Taunting him and mocking him the buyer told the seller to wait for 100 years or be prosecuted.
As soon as the seller told the buyer that he will contact the police for his act, the buyer recapped that he had signed all the documents. The buyer also proclaimed that he had written the correct date with the decided amount on the cheque and clarified his legal position.
The person who wanted to sell his car revealed that the buyer of his car had sold the car to some car showroom and had been responsible for doing such kinds of acts. The police station also has a record of his scams.
Be aware this could happen to you as well. Do not be like this guy. Check your Cheque thoroughly on the spot. Check not only the name and amount, but also the date and year. Because, people are now smart enough and have discovered new ideas to ditch others. So be on safe side and check everything on the cheque to avoid frauds.
