Another day another email. Today it’s a scammer, and just out of precaution I want to tell you about it in case you get an email like this.

Rim Guard goes right inside your tires, so it’s out of the way, it doesn’t freeze, and doesn’t corrode. It’s made from natural materials, so it’s safe around livestock and pets if it spills out.

You know at this point I can spot a Scam pretty easily although they try to Mix them up more and more all the time And this one was uh you know when you Get a really sketchy email in the Beginning it it starts to raise some red Flags but I like to prod and poke in Unassuming ways until I can kind of Validate that that hunch and so this is Uh something for you guys to be aware of Out there because you could be getting a Lot of the stuff if you own businesses Too and and maybe you are and Fortunately they looped in a legitimate Business into this scam as well and so I Reached out to them to let them know and I'll I'll follow up on that as well so This guy's email was Brett Rager Matthew outlook.com so if you see Any emails come through from that guy or Some combination of it then then be Aware and he listed a 479 a 479 area Code as his contact and he said he's Interested in my product the latest Tractor Model so you know that's already Kind of a a really weird one anyway But lots of times technolog is Goofy I Mean I get autocorrect things that pop Up like you know and it's just you don't Even realize it half the time and weird Things just happen so anyway I said sure Thing how can I help you he replies with A long email that he uh he wants to Order um the Coyote nx6010 Tractor that
I have for sale and gives me his billing And his shipping information which is a Legitimate company that's in Illinois um Called all grass farms and then uh Provides a different phone number Starting with a 347 area code and wants To know the total cost and send him an Invoice and then he wants to pay by wire Transfer again just seems seems weird But uh He's listed in Illinois and so we Can do farm use tax exemptions there and So I said okay do you have a farm use Tax exemption because I wanted him to Provide some additional piece of Documentation kind of going through a Step or uh making some more effort to to Validate his identity and He said yes I do so I said great please Send that over again prompting him to Get this sent over so that I can then Work up that tax exempt uh quote for him And he replied that it's expired already So inconvenient you know but uh I said Okay well then we're going to need to Charge sales tax then if you can't Provide it he said yes that's correct Well very accommodating I mean doesn't Really U get too upset either way so Then at that point I was like you know What this this certainly seems like a Scam but I'm just going to take uh the Time here and give him a call so first I Call the 479 um area code phone number that he
Listed originally and nobody picked up And so then I called the 347 area code Number that he put uh with his billing Information and nobody picked up there And I said I've tried calling you at Both numbers provided neither of them Picked up and neither matched the number At all grass farms the company Information that he provided he says He's actually out of the office at the Moment and obviously does not have a Cell phone folks we are proud to be Sponsored by rimgard Solutions a liquid Ballast weight it goes right inside your Tires completely hidden we're big on Safety on this channel these tractors Are just too light and Tippy right out Of the factory not only is it going to Help with safety keeping those rear Tires planted on the ground it helps With loader efficiency and traction too The benefits of rim guard include being The heaviest allnatural liquid ballast Weight on the market it's not going to Corrode your rims like the old calcium Chloride it's not going to freeze and It's available at over a thousand Dealers Nationwide find the near you at Rimgard solutions.com so anyway then at That point I mean I I I I had already Known this was a scam right but then I Reached out to all grass farms because I'm still trying to figure out the angle Of what this scam is and um I uh the
Person I needed to talk to wasn't Available then so I followed up with an Email and just forward in the whole Email chain and unfortunately they have Had the same thing happened to them over And over they've been notified by Multiple different people and they're Like we can't figure out this company Has like 4.8 stars with a bunch of Reviews online um I actually just drove By within probably 15 minutes of there I'm my way back from Iowa last week too But um looks like a a a great small Business um and they replied and said we Have no idea what's going on we can't Figure out what their angle Is the only thing that I can figure out Is it really has nothing to do with Their business at all I think to their Detriment they have a nice highly rated Small business that's legitimate is kind Of in farm country in the industry and This guy just found them and is using Them to try to legitimize what he's Doing and I think what he's actually Trying to do is just get because he Asked for wire information that's how he Want to make payment and so he's trying To glean my information as much as he Can from that so he already has my Business location he's got my name he's Got my business name he's got the Address um phone number if you can Get bank account information you know
Routing numbers and and and checking Account numbers and everything else well Then that's making it his life a lot Easier and it really has nothing to do With that end user and so Anyways um this actually happened over The weekend so I still need to report This to the authorities but I've had This happen time and time again had it Happen with actually companies that I do Business with where somehow somebody has Been hacked and they're trying to Pretend That they are the company I do business With and they're sending me all these Bills that are overdue that are fake and That I need to pay them immediately or They're going to stop sending me new Orders and stuff like that so you know Very I don't very weird stuff or maybe They just they maybe nobody's even been Hacked right maybe they just see that I Do business with these companies online And so they're just trying to to make That correlation there and then prompt Me to send them a bunch of money for Random things that they make up I don't Know the point being is that there are Scams all the time out there and that if Something smells a little off you know Whether you're you're in business or if It's just something personal that folks Are asking for information from you for If you're not comfortable with it find
Ways for them to validate who they are What they're calling about don't give Out your information without Them you being 100% sure that they are Who they say that they are so anyway Little uh PSA there for you folks and Something that I have to deal with on a Regular basis And you know I don't know if I ever Would have been scammed by that but um There is a chance that I can see long Time ago that I would have potentially Sent out some personal information that I probably shouldn't have and that could Have gone downhill for me so on that Note what so on that note if you're in The market for a tractor or tractor Attachments well we would love to help You out if we can help you pick the Right size or the right tractor or the Whole tractor package just shoot us an Email at goodworks tractors and we can Set everything up for you we ship all Over the country too I want to thank you For taking time out of your day to stop Byy and until next time stay safe we see You soon [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause]
