Avoid Vehicles Scams


Here are some tips to help you avoid scams and fraud on ClassifiedAds.com and anywhere else on the Internet:


  • Price is unusually low (fraction of blue book value).
    If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

  • Shipping a vehicle to you is suggested by seller.
    Do not buy vehicles sight-unseen, regardless of low price. The vehicle does not exist, and any money you send will be lost. Offers to ship a vehicle are virtually 100% fraudulent.

  • eBay Motors or another intermediary is specified by seller.
    eBay has no connection with ClassifiedAds.com, and any eBay or similar emails or web pages you receive are fake.

  • Payment by Western Union or a money wire is requested.
    Never use Western Union or wire transfer to pay for goods - only a scammer will ask for this, and any funds sent will be lost.

  • Stories about divorcees or departing servicemen needing to sell quickly at a low price are generally fraudulent.

If you see any of these tell-tale signs, please report them by clicking "Flag abuse or spam" in the ad and avoid it!
