**BEWARE**

BOGUS EMAILS & BUYERS!

Ref #: 22412

Increasing numbers of internet advertisers are receiving emails from bogus buyers, attempting to scam sellers

This tactic is a worldwide problem; however it would appear to be on the rise in the equine industry, targeting everything from horses and ponies for sale, to horseboxes, trailers and tack

**EXAMPLE SCAM ALERT**

We've been informed of a new email scam doing the rounds. This time the scam email in commonly coming from ‘Travis Bennett’ & 'Cynthia PT', asking a list of questions & offering to transfer a deposit and payment for shipping. Please ignore this email and if you have time report it to Action Fraud, for more details click HERE 

In another instance the scammer will contact you via email asking if your horse is still for sale, this will be followed by an email containing 23 questions as shown on the picture on the left. Please do not respond to this email. Sorry for any inconvenience caused and rest assured we are doing our best to combat this.

Another scam which is particularly common, is  when theadvertiser is contacted about an item, asking for more images, and then once the images have been received the bogus buyer will agree to send a cheque for the full amount.  At this point the seller is asked to email their full contact details to enable the buyer to send payment. The seller is then contacted again saying that the cost of shipping has accidently been included on the cheque, and could the seller forward the cost of shipment onto a courier, which is also bogus 

These scams can vary, however emails are often written in broken English and written in an over friendly style.  We urge HorseQuest customers to respond to email enquiries with caution. If something sounds too good to be true, it often is!

If you think you’ve been scammed then we strongly recommend that you contact the police

I'm seeking a loan home for a 6 year old, registered Dales gelding.  He would be great fun project that oozes potential. He's intelligent, cheeky and sharp - but if you know Dales, and you know 6 year olds, this is no surprise!

He has been broken and ridden away but work has been extremely sporadic due to lack of suitable riders. He's been out of work all winter and is bored, and seeking stimulation - or entertainment, whichever he finds first. With regular work and handling he will come round very quickly, he is intelligent and needs routine.

He's currently turned out in a large mixed herd of 25 mares and geldings. He is fine with either sex, but he is dominant and bossy in the field - he would suit a much smaller situation than we have here.

When in work he has been a sensible chap but not a laid back plod. He has a very green canter and he has been loose jumped for confidence. He is good to handle on the floor and regularly caught in, groomed and turned out by teenage riders. He has lived out with no supplementary feed and is an extremely good do-er.

He was bought at 3 by my mother who has now reluctantly agreed that she is unlikely to ride him and he is a bit too much character for her to handle to break to drive or similar, and he now requires a "job"!.

He is currently in my riding school but there is no prospect that he will make a riding school pony - he would be far too bored in the short term - so I am seeking a loan home for him to find him the right person or family for him - and he could be for sale to the right situation.

He will NOT be loaned to a showing home, for general pleasure riding only.  Strictly no novices or people who have not got prior experience with young natives.

Please do get in touch to find out more - email I can answer any time, phone calls only between 8am and 8pm please.
