Facebook Marketplace Scammers

As stated in my "Using Facebook market place to find used motorcycles article", my number one source for finding used project motorcycles to flip is on Facebook marketplace. Unfortunately, there are a lot of scammers on Facebook marketplace. It's not as bad as craigslist but it getting worse. I wish Facebook could have a way to weed out the scammers but until then, here is a little PSA. If you are trying to purchase a vehicle of any sort on Facebook, look for these warning signs listed below that could mean you are dealing with a scammer.

Avoid the following

  • Sellers who have no profile picture

  • Sellers wanting your email address

  • Sellers wanting to meet late at night

  • Sellers who are selling under business account

  • Sellers selling something out of your local area

  • Sellers with an elaborate backstory for why they are trying to sell the motorcycle

  • Sellers wanting an online payment or deposit

  • Sellers who want to bring the bike to you

  • Sellers who “lost the title”

Stay safe out there and be mindful of scammers!
