Top 4 ways to prevent used car scams
If you do anything at all, do at least these 4 tasks,
it's your best odds for success.
1) Have a mechanic put the car up on a lift for inspection
and to check for accident damage.
2) Run a VIN Report to see if the car was totaled,
salvaged, rebuilt, flooded, failed inspection, stolen, or
has odometer fraud.
3) Never sign an "As Is" paper at a used car dealer,
get at least a 30 day warranty included.
4) Have your own financing and loan approvals ready BEFORE
you go shopping, not after.
