The Army & Exchange Service is warning military shoppers about scammers posing as service members offering to broker the sale of used boats, cars and motorcycles through the Exchange. In one recent case, a scammer, who posed as a Soldier, tried to defraud a man in Tennessee out of $2,500 for the sale of a used boat, saying that the Exchange would ship the boat once payment was made. Fortunately, the would-be buyer contacted the Fort Campbell Exchange and was advised that any ads related to used-vehicle sales are fraudulent as the Exchange does not have authority to sell vehicles in the continental United States. "I'm glad this individual contacted us prior to wiring any funds because it has been our experience that once money is sent, no vehicle is received and the 'seller' is nowhere to be found," said Rick Koloski, the Exchange's Loss Prevention vice president.
