NTDA warns of Northern Ireland tyre scam

The NTDA have told us of a tyre scam currently doing the rounds in Northern Ireland. Regional Chairman Roy Nutt says that two retailers in Northern Ireland have been approached by a person looking to buy tyres with a stolen credit card. An enquiry was submitted via the website and, in what seems like an early April Fool’s joke, the enquiry was submitted in the name of a Mr. Fraud and the e-mail address given was rip@tyretradeoff.com.

The enquiry was for wholesale prices on Pacer Pc50 175/70 13 tyres, based on 50 – 100 at a time. It could be argued that anyone who receives such an enquiry and isn’t suspicious deserves what’s coming to them, but we are pleased to pass on the warning.
