Nashville, 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.

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.
