How does sicherbezahlen protect?
Buying a vehicle
Acquiring large amounts of cash is burdensome, needs to be planned 1 to 3 days ahead and is not possible during weekends. Storing, transport and handover cash can be very risky.
Minimize effort and risk: Pay in the money to sicherbezahlen and purchase cashless via Smartphone at the handover.
Paying in advance or paying a deposit for cars is dangerous and a common fraud. Many times you will make a payment and the money is gone.
Seller and buyer will get notified via email and SMS as soon as the buyer has made the deposit. That ensures the seller, that the buyer has a real interest in buying the car.
Money transfer services like Western Union, MoneyGram or similar services like PayPal are commonly misused for alleged escrow-agents. These services are not designed for expensive products like cars and are subject to fraud.
Our service is designed for car payments, boat payments and other valuable goods. We are able to offer you the most simple, secure and cost effective payment service within a large price range. Do not become subject to fraud!
Selling a vehicle
A common car trading scam is the payment with counterfeit money. Not all people have the possibility, the time or the skills to check for counterfeit money.
Pay cashless and secure via Smartphone or Computer. The buyer can authorize the payment after the inspection.
A lot of scammers try to contact you via marketplaces to gain valuable personal information about you to commit a fraud.
Every buyer needs to be officially identified via Video-Identification to comply with Germany's money laundering act. This ensures that the buyer can not be a fraudster.
A scammer could assure you about the trustworthiness of his bank transfer receipt and cancel the transfer as soon as he is in the possession of the car. The money will never reach your bank acount and your car is gone.
As soon as the buyer has released the money via TAN it is non-revocable transferred to the seller's bank account. In real-time both parties receive a confirmation via email and SMS, to be certain about the payment.
