If you are in doubt about a seller, please find some steps we recommend you follow before purchasing a machine:
Make some research online about their company and ask the company registration authority in that country if this company is registered there. There are also some websites that have this information.
Try to check if they have ads on other heavy machinery marketplaces or if they have their own website.
Call them about all your questions and if they avoid picking up the phone or helping you with more details, it is clearly a fraud. A genuine seller will always invest their time in understanding their customer's needs.
