Consumer News: The overpayment scam enters the world of online shopping fraud

With the rise of online shopping, consumers are buying and selling items at a higher pace than ever before. Between eBay, Shopify, Facebook Marketplace, WooCommerce, Amazon Handmade, Etsy, and others, there are literally millions of people who have built millions of little online shops from the comfort of their kitchen table, generating billions in sales.

Digital crooks love all that’s going on and have created the “overpayment scam” to get in on all the action. Sadly, the scam is proving to be a winner for them but a loser for online shop owners. 

Enter the scammers

The scam is pretty simple: the crooks offer to pay you more than the listed price -- sometimes claiming they want to cover shipping or other fees for you “because you’ve been so helpful.” They’ll often ask to overpay through a digital wallet, such as PayPal Venmo, claiming it’s a matter of policy. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) reports that they may mail a check for more than the asking price in some cases.

Step two is that the scammer will claim the overpayment was an honest mistake and ask the seller for the difference back. However, once the seller returns the money, they’ll quickly find out that the initial payment was bogus when the check bounces or the buyer’s online payment is denied. Not only does the seller lose the money they “returned,” but on top of that, they’ve also lost the item they sold. 

“Once the money is sent back to the scammer, it’s gone,” said Roseann Freitas, the Better Business Bureau Hawaii’s Marketplace Manager. “There is nothing they can do to get that money back once they send it. That person now disappears and the other scary part though, is they actually have some of your personal information.”

How to avoid online selling scams

The BBB says anyone selling anything online needs to stay vigilant and burn three important warning signs into their conscience. 

  • Don’t ship an item before you receive payment. Put forth the effort to make sure any payments you receive are legitimate before you ship your item to the seller. Why? It’s simple -- if you ship before they pay, you have no chance at all of getting your item back.

  • Don’t believe offers that are too good to be true. The BBB says that unless you’re selling something like a rare or highly desirable item that several people are bidding on, it’s ludicrous to think you can expect anyone to offer to pay more than what you are asking. If someone tries to overpay you, then consider it a red flag.

  • Look out for counterfeit emails. Remember, scammers are relentless and come in many forms. They’ll try to imitate any legitimate business -- from tech giants like Microsoft to payment systems like Venmo or PayPal. Take a hard, careful look at all emails. If it comes from a domain that isn’t official or contains obvious typos and grammatical errors, it’s probably a scam.

ConsumerAffairs suggests that anyone selling on Facebook Marketplace take a look at its guidelines. Boning up on the BBB’s tips about selling used items online could also prevent getting scammed.

While owning up to being victimized by a scam is embarrassing, it’s important. While it probably won’t get you your money or the item you sold back, reporting scams to the online marketplace where it occurred, as well as to the BBB’s Scam Tracker, could stop the scammers from ripping off others.

This week we have the test results of the 2020 RAM 1500 Diesel pickup truck, and discuss its impressive ride, whether it is "diesel enough,"  and how it stacks up against competitors like the Chevrolet Silverado diesel in the half-ton truck segment. Honda recently unveiled a prototype of its popular Civic, and we talk about its new chassis, exterior styling, and cabin. Subaru also made news, revealing the new BRZ, and we discuss if it can retain its sporty DNA from the previous generation and its sister model Toyota 86? We also share some of the key changes to the new Acura MDX redesign. Can having your key fob in your car drain your car's battery? We answer that, and cover other topics including if cars can have a country of origin anymore, and which off-road vehicle would be a viable replacement for a vintage Land Rover Defender. ----------------------------------- Subscribe to Talking Cars on Apple Podcasts!

Samsung cut $200 off the price of all three Galaxy S21 phones. The Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus come with a bunch of upgrades and refinements, including a striking new color scheme. But aside from their price, the phones aren’t massively different from their S20 counterparts. In fact, it seems Samsung scaled back on certain specs and features. We take a look at the tradeoffs that were made to hit that lower price.

FTC Video: Why Report Fraud? | Federal Trade Commission


Related Videos On: Why Report Fraud? | Federal Trade Commission


If you think you see a scam, talk with someone. Your story could help someone avoid that scam. Then report it to the Federal Trade Commission at https://ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Your story could help the FTC stop the scammers. ****************************** Transcript: We all see scams. Even if we don't buy into one, we all get the calls, emails, and letters. Why are there so many? Well, scammers see us all as targets, so they keep trying to get our money or Social Security number or account numbers. And they're good at what they do. They know how to knock us off balance just long enough to take advantage. That's why we need a plan. So if you think you've spotted a scam, what do you do? First, tell somebody. The call or email might seem urgent, but slow down. Talk to a family member, friend, or neighbor. Tell them the story. Sometimes just saying it out loud helps. Maybe your friend got a similar message or knows someone who has. Or your story might just help your neighbor avoid that scam. Then tell the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC sues scammers and works to shut them down. When you report a scam to the FTC, investigators use your information to build cases against scammers. Other law enforcement agencies can see the reports, too, and use them to further their own investigations. Your story makes a difference. Every report is a piece of the puzzle that lets the FTC see the full picture of what scammers are doing and then stop them, because scammers don't scam just one person. But you could be the one person whose story tips the balance, stops someone from falling for the scam, or stops the scammer. So tell your story. As soon as you think you see a scam, talk with someone, and then tell the FTC. ****************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American. It is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers' interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies.
