The Walker Police Department is warning residents about a scam after two people were defrauded when they tried to buy vehicles from a website believed to be eBay Motors.
Officials say in both instances, the victims negotiated prices for vehicles and sent certified funds to the persons believed to be the sellers of the vehicles. In each instance, it was later determined that the transaction was fraudulent and that the eBay Motors was never actually involved in the transactions; it only appeared that the transaction was being conducted under the watchful eye of eBay.
The police department would like to remind people to use extreme care when making online purchases, particularly purchases involving high dollar items, such as motor vehicles.
