The Jamaica Customs Agency, JCA, is warning members of the public to be wary of scammers who are attempting to trick them by claiming to have access to vehicles that the agency has failed to sell at auction.

Commissioner of Customs, Major Richard Reese, says the JCA will only sell items through guidelines permitted in the Customs Act and it’s regulations.

This means that any item which fails to sell at auction will be put up for resale at a subsequent auction and will not be available for sale through any other means.

He is also reminding the public that cash or cheque payments for any sale must be paid directly to the JCA, and at no time should persons make payments to any other entity.

The commissioner says that anyone wishing to participate in a JCA sanctioned auction must register at one of their various warehouses prior to the activity, providing valid ID, a TRN card, two passport sized photos and pay the $2,000 fee.
