Classified Ads-Notes, Comments,Rules
Classified ads are often a lifeline for finding necessary parts to restore and repair our Oaklands and Pontiacs. As a service for our OPW members there is never any charge for classified ads or photos. We will list cars and parts from non members to give OPW members a chance to purchase Oakland and Pontiac cars and parts. As an added bonus to OPW members, all ads will be listed in at least two venues. They will be published in OPW News and will be listed on the OPW website.
Consequently, we must have some guidelines to follow.
1. All ads will run in 3 issues (6 months).
2. It is the member's responsibility to request an additional 3 issues.
3. It is the responsibility of the member to notify OPW Editor when an item is sold or withdrawn from the market.
4. All ads will be coded with the last publication date. (ie. 04-09) means that the last time this ad will be published will be the second issue of 2009).
(Please read the following article)
This website that our club has created is for the purpose for expanding the knowledge of the Oakland and Pontiac automobiles and creating a worldwide network that allows us to do this. We all must recognize that when we place ourselves on the worldwide web (www.), we expose ourselves to all kinds of people. Some of them do not have our best intentions in mind. The Oakland Pontiac Worldwide Region of the AACA created the classified section on our website for OPW members and other Oakland Pontiac enthusiest to buy and sell items that might be useful to the restoration of Oakland Pontiac automobiles. In doing so, we can become targets for unscrupulous people with intent to defraud.
I am going to describe a scam that is very common, however, people still fall for it. A person will contact you via email and show interest in an item listed in the classified section. He will ask some general questions and then agree to the price. He will then explain that he has purchased a group of parts and wishes to ship them all at the same time. He will tell you that he is sending you a cashier's check that you are to cash or deposit it, then subtract the money for the parts you are selling and wire the balance to the shipper to complete the shipping arrangements. If you do this, you will find that the check is fraudulent and you have just lost the money you wired. You will also find that all the information he supplied you such as: websites, names, places, email addresses, phone numbers, and bank account numbers are false. You have just been scammed out of your money. This is an actual scam that someone attempted with me (unsuccessfully).
I am presently working with law enforcement, helping them track down these dishonest individuals by supplying information necessary to the investigation. The best way to shut them down is for people to be informed. Never, Never send money via Western Union to complete a sale or pay for shipping. Always have your bank check the tracking numbers on any check with which you are not familiar. This is easy to do just by taking the check to your bank and have them call the issuing bank. Do this before you deposit the check and NEVER pay for someone's shipping charges. Even if the check clears, you could still be involved with a money laundering scam.
We all would like to sell our parts, but use good common sense. If someone sends you a check for more than the value that you are selling your part for, IT IS A SCAM! I hope this article educates and alerts everyone that there are unscrupulous people out there wishing to separate you from your money.
