RISE IN SCAMMERS
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.
