Police warn against 'too good to be true' adverts

Fri, 14 Apr 2017

Police are urging Manx residents to be wary of offers that are too good to be true after dealing with a scam involving the sale of an Aston Martin.

The fraudster was offering an Aston Martin DB5 at a price that appeared too good to be true, tricking the potential buyer into thinking they're getting a good deal.

The scam involves using images from the internet to place ads locally before asking for a deposit to ship the car, which then never arrives.

Officers on the Island warn apprehending these type of criminals is difficult as they can be based anywhere in the world, so are urging locals to be wary when considering such a purchase.
