Some common sense advice
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Even though you’ve posted a for-sale ad, you are under NO obligation to sell to anyone, no matter who they are or how much they offer. You do not have to respond to an email or phone offer that makes you uncomfortable in any way. It’s your item(s) for sale on your terms. If the person you are dealing with makes you uncomfortable or it just does not feel right then do not deal with them.
Your best protection from scam artists is to insist upon cash paid in person. Do NOT accept cashier’s checks. Do not ship your horse or item(s) until you’ve been paid in full and the money is deposited to your account. If you feel you must accept a check, insist that the issuing bank clear the check before the horse or item(s) leaves your control. This can take 7-14 days. If the buyer is pressuring you to send it now they could be scammers. Learn more ways to protect yourself at Federal Trade Commission.
If you have a horse for sale ad do not be shy about asking hard questions of the buyer. You want to make sure your horse is going to a good home.
If you are buying a horse make sure to have a veterinarian do an exam on the horse. Make sure you are purchasing a sound horse. Good information about this can be found at Georgia Department of Agriculture.
