Used Car Sales Scam

What: placing ads in several newspapers and used car internet sites for the same vehicle – 2005 Honda Odyssey Touring for $4,500 vs $20,000 Blue Book Value.

Uses real VIN number that shows vehicle in an accident.

How: scam is to get you to submit down payment via paypal for delivery of car for inspection.

Result:  several buyers ripped off

My Actions: alerted my local paper that ran the ad today.
