ADVICE FROM SAIA


BE AWARE OF SCAMS

It has come to our attention that there are some fraudulent Facebook pages impersonating Auction Businesses and advertising scam auctions on Facebook. Unfortunately, there have been members of the public who have fallen victim to these scams.

The South African Institute of Auctioneers (SAIA) proposes buyers run through the following safety tips to ensure that they do not fall victim:

  1. At no time whatsoever will auctioneers require a deposit for viewing purposes, they will however require a refundable deposit to register to bid at the auction. All vehicles relating to bank repossessions will only be sold via auction and the same usually applies to liquidations and insolvencies. 
  2. Insist on an invoice with letterhead and company details as well as reference number should you need to make payment. Make every attempt to verify account details.
  3. Verify that you are dealing with the correct and legitimate company, Check the company’s contact details ie. landline, email, physical address, Google and use Google Maps to check.
  4. Establish how the auction will be conducted, how to login and how the bidding will work. It should be simple and transparent
  5. Financial Institutions will never sell the vehicles before an auction. If you are interested in a vehicle, you have to attend the auction.
  6. Do not be tempted to engage in off-hand / pre auction negotiations, as no pre auction negotiations will be done before a vehicle is placed on auction as auctioneers firmly work on instructions received by sellers, such as financial institutions, liquidators, collectors etc who always require legitimate auctioneers to fetch the highest bid on auction.
  7. When in doubt, contact SAIA to verify and establish whether the company is known to the institute and is a member in good standing.

Help us to prevent this from happening to others.

We urge all to please be vigilant and check that you are viewing registered auctioneer's pages and actual auctions.

The South African Institute of Auctioneers (SAIA), the official governing body for the auction industry, ADVISES the public to first confirm if an auctioneer is a SAIA member. Non-SAIA members fall outside SAIA's ambit to protect the public and don't subscribe to its Code of Ethics.

Verify auctioneers by visiting www.auctioneering.co.za/auctioneerlist/1035/Registered_Auctioneers/ or email Sonja Styger on sonja.styger@auctioneering.co.za.

Please find below a list of Auctioneers who are NOT SAIA Members.
