The world is a huge marketplace, and we are all merely customers who are consuming whatever we think we need. Often, it is something that we are made to feel that we need, and that is exactly what marketing is about.
A Short Story for Car Owners Selling Online
This is exactly what happened when a woman from Auckland tried to get rid of her vehicle by selling it online. If you have ever heard of the Nigerian Prince scam, you might have a clue of what I am talking about. This was a huge scam, where someone online (and in a far off land) would try to buy something from you, and then offer you the entire amount through a transfer. The catch here was that you were to transfer a certain amount to a certain ‘shady’ website disguised as PayPal. Only after you paid this amount would you receive the amount from this buyer.
The woman, let’s call her Yellow, did not quite understand this banking system. She tried her best to inquire about this peculiar transaction through a mildly aggressive e-mail chain.
After a point, Yellow realised how this car buyer had not given any contact details. Even if they were living in the United States, they ought to have a cell phone!
Even though the internet and being able to sell stuff online is truly a boon to society, sometimes does backfire.
Frauds and scams like the one mentioned above are common, and there have been instances where the victims have lost quite a lot of money. It is not completely disastrous to try to sell your car online, but you need to be very careful. People scam car sellers in Auckland offline too. But the only advantage for online scammers is that they are not seen, heard or touched. They are intangible!
So, what are the other methods to sell an old vehicle in Auckland?
