BBB warns consumers about internet vehicle scams

Posted: Updated:

St. Louis, Mo -  Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns consumers shopping for a vehicle on the internet, to be on alert if the seller suggests using a third party to handle the transaction.

Hundreds of consumers from across the country began contacting BBB at the end of March about Springfield Shippers, which claimed to handle escrow and shipping for vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.

Within a few weeks, at least 17 additional vehicle shipping websites appeared, all claiming to be located in Springfield, Missouri.

Six consumers have reported losing $2,800 to $9,500 each by wiring money to purchase vehicles through these fraudulent companies.
