Sales & Purchases are made at your own risk and SIBA are not involved in any transaction between you and an advertiser.
April 2019 SIBA are aware of potential fraudulent activity by 3rd parties, via the Classified section on the SIBA Website.
Anonymous persons have contacted a small number of sellers who have advertised equipment for sale on the Classified section of the SIBA website.
The nature as follows:
Owner of the Classified Ad receives an email from, what looks to be a genuine email account, offering to send a cheque exceeding the total value of the goods they wish to purchase for themselves or a family member/friend; the extra amount to pay for shipping which the ‘seller’ is then required to send by bank transfer to account details supplied. Whilst SIBA do not have control over users contacting sellers due to the website being accessible by the public; we can not stress enough, the importance of being vigilant when selling and purchasing via the site.
Just to reassure you, the majority of transactions are genuine and in fact, are becoming more popular by SIBA Members and non-members.
