Fraudulent Activity

Equine Safepay Agents with SecurePayment

It has come to our attention that fraudulent emails are being circulated purporting to be from Equine SafePay with SecurePayment and are requesting money to be sent to an ‘Equine SafePay agent’ with a UK, Polish or MoneyGram bank account to complete a purchase. Example given below –

 

It can be seen that the fraudulent service has copied the Equine SafePay ( secure payment service offered by Inglis digital for their marketplaces bloodstock.com.au and horsezone.com.au) name and has provided bank transfer details of an Equine SafePay Agent in the UK. Clear signs that this email is fraudulent –

  • Neither Equine SafePay, nor Inglis Digital nor CheckVault use agents to facilitate the escrow service.
  • Equine SafePay does not request transfer of funds to an overseas bank account. All funds are held in Australia with CheckVault as the Escrow provider.
  • Transfer details do not match those listed below. See ‘Protect Yourself From Fraud’.

If you receive such an email, please forward it to support@checkvault.com.au along with any details of where the items/vehicles were listed and contact your local authority.
