A number of APF Members who have used the classified advertisements web page have reported that they have become the potential target of various attempted scams involving dubious financial transactions. Do not be taken in by these scams! Sell or buy your gear only from another APF Member who is a bona fide parachutist with a genuine interest in the equipment.

  • These scams have been going on for a while in the classifieds. They resurface from time to time. The scammers use different names and the exact form of the offer may vary. Here's some simple and general advice to protect yourself from becoming a victim:

    • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

    • Be wary of anyone who requires you to only pay by Paypal. Do not provide your PayPal Email address, your full name or your phone number.

    • Be wary if you are advised you don't need to worry about shipment because the buyer has a pick-up agent who will also determine and secure the shipment.

    • Be wary if a higher payment is supposedly made than you asked for.

    • Be wary of any contact made to you from an on-line texting site.

    • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer" or purchasing a "present" for someone else.

    • If you agree to accept a cheque payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the cheque cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent cheque then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the cheque.

    • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is

    • ASK SKYDIVING SPECIFIC QUESTIONS of your 'buyer' to help ascertain their authenticity. Even ask for their APF Membership Number.


This page is intended for the advertisement of parachute equipment for private sales from APF Member to APF Member. However, the web is in the public domain and may be accessed by anyone. Purchasers should take care before making payments and vendors should take care before parting with goods as no liability can be accepted by the APF. If you are in any doubt about the identity of a prospective vendor or purchaser, we would advise you to ask them for the relevant information to enable you to verify their identity.
