BBB alert to
car buying scam
Never wire money to an unknown person or address.
While looking for a used car, an interested buyer came across an ad for a 2007 Audi with low miles for $3,500. The interested buyer asked a lot of questions and the seller said his son was killed and he just wanted to sell the car.
The funds were wired but the delivery never happened. The information was fraudulent. Check with the Better Business Bureau before spending money.
