    pretty slick scam - must have had some organisation behind it to have all the relevant bits working (the phone, cheque, etc). No doubt it's not the first car they'ev scored this way.

    fwiw: when I sold my ute, I drove it to the buyer's house and watched him transfer the dollars to my account online and took a printout of the transaction. The qld transfer form requires you to record their licence details as well (not that a licence cannot be faked). I figured the paperwork plus knowing where he lived was adequate security.

    But such an elaborate scam just to get their hands on a car they can only use for parts (or ship overseas). Doesn't make sense to me. If I was doing such a thing, I would use the quality fake cheques to 'buy' a much more liquid asset.

    You know I reckon shit like this could be avoided if people were made more aware of the fact that bank cheques don't clear instantly and aren't "as good as cash". Maybe contact Carsales and tell them they need to promote this fact a little more if they want to keep their 'good name'.

    There needs to be a number to ring to check the numbers on bank cheques

    not sure it would be that simple, you could ring and get validation of a cheque then the account holder could phone and cancel cheque 5 mins later.

    fact is until you wait the three days and get the money there is zero guarantees.

    i think you can pay a premium to have some cheques processed immediately but not normally.

    Now you know how to buy one cheap

    Yeah in all seriousness I hope some good comes to the OP and this thread opens a few eyes. The only difference between a normal cheque and a bank cheque is 2 days.

    My mint 1996 R33 GTR was stolen from Harbourtown shopping centre on the Goldy a few years back and the copper who turned up to do the report said "if we don't find it by the end of the weekend it'll be in 50 pieces in some lebbo cunts shed in Sydney".


    That's where they end up.

    Just reading now that they have started forging ATO cheques drawing against the Reserve Bank.

    These are good enough fakes, that they are only discovered to be so when put under fluorescent lighting.

    Problem now arises as to how you do the money transfer for a sale. 10 grand is a lot of cash to carry on yourself. Even more of a problem if you are going to pay twice or 3 times that amount

    and even more difficult to check every note... really.. i mean fake notes are reasonably good.. maybe not on their own.. or even in a bunch of 5... but in a group of 600..
    This is a post i wrote by mistake, which is nice...

    So is the only safe way to take the cheque to your bank and get them to confirm it's valid? Is it then safe to hand over the keys or can the bank later decide that the cheque was dodgy and order the funds back?

    Would you be better off validating the cheque at the originating bank?

    I'd say either cash or wait until the funds are cleared.

    I paid cash for the 323.
