Sellers Of Hay & Straw Beware!

There are scams being tried by fraudulent buyers. They overpay and ask for a refund. Be safe do not give refunds until you are sure their payment has cleared and funds are guaranteed to be in your account.

Buyers Of Hay & Straw Beware!

There scams being tried by fraudulent sellers. Hay will be priced below market value and down payment in advanced required than hay is never delivered. These sellers only have email addresses and you can't call them or they will only call you.

SCAM! 7-21-16 !!!

I received a phone call from a NW Ohio hay producer. An individual stopped at his farm (sign by drive) and wanted to buy 200 bales of hay with a $1500 money order from Western Union. He would take the balance in cash or check. The hay seller wanted to get the money order verified before he would take the money order. The man said he did not have time and left before the license plate could be seen (parked along the road). beware of buyer in white dual pickup pulling a red flatbed trailer.  Non-Ohio Tags.

The fake cashiers check scam is now being tried through text messaging. NEVER SEND DIFFERENCE UNTIL THE CHECK CLEARS THEIR BANK AND THE FUNDS ARE IN YOUR ACCOUNT. NEVER RELEASE HAY OR STRAW WHEN PAID FOR BY CHECKS FOR MORE THAN THE AMOUNT OF THE HAY BEFORE YOU HAVE THE MONEY IN YOUR ACCOUNT. 

Email Only Contacts!

More and more hay listings are email only contacts.  99.9% of these are legitimate, but  bogus listing that shows up once and a while makes it necessary to suspect all email only listings. You must verify before you give them any information. When you inquire about hay with only an email contact ask that they reply with a phone and location address. If they do not BEWARE!!!. Report them to this website.
