Wiring Fraud Disclaimer
Dear valued customer,
At Steer Well Auto, we prioritize your security and want to ensure that you are aware of the risks associated with wiring funds during a vehicle purchase. Unfortunately, wiring fraud has become increasingly prevalent in the automotive industry, and we want to take every precaution to protect you from potential financial losses.
Wiring fraud typically involves cybercriminals posing as legitimate parties to manipulate individuals into sending funds to fraudulent accounts. These scams may occur through email, phone calls, or other means of communication that appear authentic, making it difficult to distinguish the fraudsters from legitimate sources.
To safeguard our valued customers, we would like to emphasize the following points:
- Verify All Details: Always verify all payment instructions, account details, and purchase-related information with us directly through known and trusted contact methods. Be cautious of any changes in payment instructions communicated through email or other unverified means.
- In-Person Transactions: Whenever possible, we encourage our customers to complete the purchase transaction in person at our dealership. This provides an additional layer of security and minimizes the risk of falling victim to wiring fraud.
- Secure Communication: We will never request sensitive financial information, such as bank account numbers or personal identification details, via email or phone. If you receive any communication asking for such information, please contact us immediately to verify its legitimacy.
- Escrow Services: If you are considering a remote purchase, we recommend using reputable escrow services to ensure a secure transaction.
- Report Suspicious Activity: If you suspect any fraudulent activity or have received suspicious communications claiming to be from Steer Well Auto, please inform us immediately. We will take prompt action to investigate and address the issue.
Remember, your security is our top priority, and we are committed to providing a safe and enjoyable car buying experience. By staying vigilant and verifying all transaction details, we can work together to minimize the risks associated with wiring fraud.
Thank you for choosing Steer Well Auto. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team.
