Online Vehicle Scams

Recently there has been an increase in the number of frauds occurring, involving vehicles sold on web sites such as Craigslist and EBAY motors.

Typically the criminal will put up a false ad on one of these sites and attempt to get you to wire payment for the vehicle or for shipping the vehicle.

Remember once you have wired the money it's gone, the money transfer business will not refund your money even if it's fraud.

The best rule of thumb is to do the purchase transactions and receive the vehicle in person. This is the only way to guarantee that you won't get ripped off.
