Farm machinery scammers try new tack

Farmers Weekly has been alerted to the fact that fraudsters are claiming that they are part of a ‘Farmers Weekly buyer protection scheme’ in order to persuade farmers to prepay for machinery.

We would like to make it clear that any such claims are false and would urge readers to exercise caution and only part with money when they are satisfied that the seller is genuine.

If you have any concerns about suspicious advertisers please email us at
