The BBB has heard from people across the country who thought they were buy- ing from a reputable dealer online but were actually sending money to scam- mers posing as legitimate, already- established community dealerships. "Because scammers essentially steal the identity and good name of real auto dealers, car shoppers will think that they're buying a car from a reputable business," said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota. "The truth is, they're being sold a bill of goods by coordinated, agile scam- mers who are in all likelihood operat- ing from overseas." Recently, a Memphis auto dealer, AmErica Auto Sales ' "http://www.memphisautoworld .com ", received more than 1 ;000 calls from consumers across the country who had shopped for a new ,car on "" www. ameri cauto sales, corn thinking that it was the website of the Memphis dealership. The phony website used the name, address and contact infor- mation of the real dealer. The fraudulent website claimed to sell repossessed cars at prices well below market. Buyers were instructed to wire a deposit--as much as $5,000--to an individual rather than the. company, which, according to the phony website, "helps us avoid taxes legally." The balance was to be paid upon delivery at the consumer's address within five days. After paying the deposit, victims Your Vote Will be appreciated at the called the real dealership to arrange primary election Tuesday, August lOth. delivery of their car.
