Purchasing A Used Car

  1. NEVER pay for a vehicle by instant cash transfer, such as Western Union or Moneygram.
  2. GET a vehicle history report before purchasing a used car. Make sure that any issues such as a lien or criminal activity are removed or taken care of before purchasing the car.
  3. BEWARE of fraudsters who send fake email messages claiming to represent an established company or offer escrow services.
  4. VALIDATE the vehicle description by getting the vehicle inspected. Some sellers offer buyers a condition guarantee in which they will allow the buyer to get the vehicle inspected before purchase.
  5. RESEARCH the pricing information, specs and photos, ratings and reviews.
