  Information
Name:
   Vin scam!
Email Address:

So, this guy emails me from my ad on Auto Trader and says he really wants to buy my car but he wants a VIN report ran on the vehicle before he comes to buy it. He sent me the website to grab the report off of and email it to him. The link for the VIN report he sent is goo.gl/3RNRHK

I clicked on it and it looks totally legit! But I have the Auto Trader VIP service which includes a free VIN report. The guy didn't want to use the one Auto Trader provides and kept asking me to download it from his link. Just a scam to get my CC info.

So frustrating! Sucks to not be able to trust people these days. Just SAD!
