Don't Fall For Scams
Dragon Driving will never contact you by phone to ask for your Credit Card details.
We do not recommend accepting payment via Paypal but if you do always check your account, do not rely on receiving an an email from Paypal.
If you get a call supposedly from the RSPCA or similar it is likely to be a scammer, do not give them your address.
Never send money on to cover carriage, agents fees, commission, etc... even if you have been sent the money in advance.
Beware of Scam emails
We have been made aware of a number of scammers targeting people advertising on the Internet, if you receive one of their e-mails please beware.
The scam is known as the Over Payment Cheque Scam, this website explains it well www.hoax-slayer.com/overpayment-scam.html
Although the e-mails vary there are certain pointers to look out for:-
- It is usually written in poor English.
- It asks for your best price and/or condition but not the usual is he good in traffic/ etc..
- It will inform you of their preferred payment method.
- They say that they have carriers lined up already.
- There is no phone number or address to contact them direct.
- They will send more money than you are asking for the item.
