BBB Warns of Vehicle Scams

ScamAlert_1529879915906.jpg

Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota is warning consumers shopping for vehicles on the internet to be on alert. The BBB says to be weary if the seller suggests using a third party to handle the transaction.

They are now aware of 2 suspect entities with websites claiming physical addresses in North Dakota. Both of which, are believed to be involved in a nationwide scheme. Vehicles were listed at very affordable rates.
Consumers that have gone ahead and completed transactions with sellers in these situations say they did not receive the vehicles nor a refund of their money. 

The sellers tell the buyers they are using a shipper to handle escrow and transportation of the vehicle to the potential buyer. BBB believes the sellers and shippers are both fraudulent. BBB encourages consumers who have lost money in this scam to file a complaint with BBB and a report with local law enforcement.
