Internet auction fraud

Internet auction fraud could be when you buy fake or stolen goods, or when you pay for goods that never arrive.

Internet auction fraudsters often use money transfer services such as Western Union or Moneygram because it’s easier for them to receive your money without revealing their true identity.

If fraud has been committed, report it to Action Fraud.
