Lelong sounded a warning last month whereby someone has been trying to intercept winning auctions by sending out email to winners of auctions one Lelong, furnishing buyers with his banking particulars and requesting from payment from successful bidders.
This of course sounds quite impossible but you know people, there would surely be someone who would fall victim to such a scam. Lelong has warned us not to make payment to this person and in fact, we should not make payment into an account that is not personally held by the seller.
In any case, we should always check our system email from the system; by logging into the website to check for and reply to new messages. That would ensure that we are dealing with the legitimate seller!
