FRAUD WARNING!

06/02/2018

Be aware that someone is using the MVDA name & address to fraudulently obtain money for used parts from members of the public. We have recently received queries from 2 members of the public who say that they used one of the on-line parts finders to search for parts. They then received a mobile phone call in response to their request, from someone representing themselves as MVDA Dismantlers, saying they could supply the parts & that payment is required in advance by bank transfer. Needless to say, once payment is made no further contact with the seller is ever established. Only today a customer drove from Glasgow to Lichfield, having paid for & expecting to collect some parts. The phone number the guy is using is 07958 643530 & the bank account that he is asking money to be paid into is sort code 51 70 32 and account number is 8427 9656 (which appears to be NatWest in Harbourne, Birmingham). We are aware that in the recent past this has also happened to MVDA members. We are in the process of contacting the main parts finders, & the bank itself, but can all our members, friends & colleagues please keep a watch out & spread the message? Thank you
