100% bad news.

A portion of the criminal’s FAQ found on the site:

What are the brokerage steps ?

Both parties agree to terms of the transaction, which includes a description of the vehicle, sale price, number of days for the buyer‘s inspection period. Step 1 is completed after a transaction has been added to our database by one of the parties and has been accepted by the other. The buyer submits a payment to Aussie Auto Brokers so that good funding can be verified before proceeding to the next step. Aussie Auto Brokers authorizes the seller to ship the vehicle and requests tracking information from the latter. Aussie Auto Brokers verifies that the buyer receives the vehicle.

The buyer must decide to accept or return the vehicle received before the inspection period expires, or it will become non-returnable. If the buyer accepts the vehicle, Aussie Auto Brokers pays the seller and the transaction is completed.
Otherwise, the vehicle is sent back to the seller and, after verification, the money is returned to the buyer.

How is the buyer protected ?

– Aussie Auto Brokers tracks the shipped vehicle (using the tracking number provided by the seller at step 4 ) and verifies it was delivered.
– The seller isn’t paid until the buyer accepts the vehicle, or the inspection period is over.

How is the seller protected ?

– Aussie Auto Brokers notifies the seller when the buyer receives the vehicle.
– The seller is authorized to ship the vehicle only after Aussie Auto Brokers verifies the buyer’s funds.

How do I start a new transaction ?

Once you have a Aussie Auto Brokers account, after logging in, click on New Transaction in the member tools menu at the top of the page. The page that will load will guide you through the rest of the process.

How does the seller get paid in the end ?

The seller is paid only upon acceptation of the vehicle by the buyer. Money is sent by cheque or wire transfer (in the case of the latter, an additional fee of $15 is deducted)
