Does BuyMyAsphalt Sell Used Asphalt Equipment?

What kind of fraud and money scams should I watch out for?

The following common-sense rules are good to follow to avoid would-be scammers:

  • If possible, DEAL LOCALLY with someone you can meet in person - This one rule will probably curb 99% of all fraudulent scams.
  • NEVER give someone any kind of financial information whether it is a bank account number, social security number, eBay/PayPal login info, etc.
  • If a seller offers deals involving shipping or escrow services, stay away from them. Also, keep in mind that only a scammer will "GUARANTEE" your transaction.
