BBB study finds Vehicle Shipper, Escrow Scams Growing as Demand Increases for Online Vehicle Purchases

 

Better Business Bureau - BBBNashville, TN – The Better Business Bureau (BBB) says that social distancing guidelines during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic have fueled an unprecedented shift to online shopping for consumer goods of all kinds, including vehicles, with particularly high demand for recreational vehicles (RVs).

Many online platforms list cars, trucks, vans and RVs for very low prices, with sellers offering to make third-party delivery arrangements if the buyer pays via escrow. In reality, neither the automobile nor the escrow company exists — leaving the buyer without their money or vehicle. 
 
An in-depth investigative study by Better Business Bureau finds that thousands of consumers have fallen victim to this scam, with losses totaling millions of dollars.

Better Business Bureau warns Phony Court Email Summons carry Malware

 

Better Business Bureau - BBBNashville, TN – In today’s society, almost anyone could be sued at any point in time, and that’s what makes a malicious malware scam so effective. Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns business and consumers to watch out for fake emails that summons you for a court appearance. If you’ve received an email stating that you are supposed to appear to court, delete it immediately.

Some scams pop up repeatedly, each time with a different twist. How do you know the summons is a fake? Courts don’t send summons via email. Legitimate court appearance notices are routinely delivered via the U.S. Postal Service, Sheriffs Department or by a process server, never by e-mail or phone calls from someone identifying them self as a court official.
