It is strongly sus­pected of­fend­ers have been con­tact­ing the sell­ers and ar­rang­ing to come and view the ve­hi­cles. In some cases, the sell­ers have given their ad­dress to prospec­tive buy­ers and ar­ranged a date and time. The per­son has not ar­rived at the ar­ranged time and the seller has been un­able to con­tact them.
