RISE IN SCAM­MERS

Performance Vauxhall - - NEWSFEED -

Lead­ing ve­hi­cle his­tory check­ing web­site, My­CarCheck.com, has warned on­line scams re­lat­ing to car sales is on the rise. It’s bad enough hav­ing to deal with scam­mers on Face­book groups, but those to­er­ags are small fry com­pared to the so­phis­ti­cated con artists set­ting up pro­fes­sional-look­ing web­sites and de­mand­ing a hefty de­posit to se­cure a ve­hi­cle “be­cause it’s been the sub­ject of a huge amount of in­ter­est and en­quiries.” As ob­vi­ous as it sounds, now more than ever is a good time to re­mind your­self of the phrase ‘buyer be­ware’. A cheap VXR sounds good, but is it too good to be true? Buy wisely, peo­ple.
