HPI reports a growing number of buyers whose fingers have been burned by the ‘virtual car seller’ scam. Used car buyers mistakenly think that online payment systems, such as Google Wallet, will protect them if they get taken in by a fraudster.

HPI has warned car buyers that paying online might not protect them from the “virtual car scam”. The con is simple. The “seller” advertises a high-end car – that has sensible mileage and plenty of service history – for a small sum of money.

Fraudsters target online buyers - The MoneySupermarket Blog

Fraudsters target online buyers - The MoneySupermarket Blog | Used Cars | Scoop.it

The car-buying market is fraught with mistrust, to the point where even the most scrupulous of salesmen is viewed with suspicion. But the sad fact is, you always need to be alert to the possibility of falling victim of a scam, particularly if a deal looks too good to be true.

HPI's curator insight, October 9, 2013 10:17 AM

So it’s always worth carrying out an HPI Check that will not only confirm that the vehicle in question actually exists, but also whether it is currently recorded as being stolen (if you buy a stolen car then you’ll lose the car and you’re money), whether the car has been written off, and whether it has any outstanding finance against it.

Be Careful When You Buy Online -Government Auctions

Many of us turn to the online market when looking at a car – either just to do research or potentially to buy. However, it is worth noting that many online payment systems do not offer fraud protection, if for example you purchase a car that doesn’t even exist! Used car buyers should never purchase a vehicle online without seeing it and meeting the seller first, no matter what the payment method is, advises HPI.
