The craigslist used car scam in Nebraska

Craiglist Scam Targets Used Car Customers:

The Nebraska State Patrol Auto Fraud Division is warning citizens that people in Nebraska have lost large sums of money to the used car scam from ads that are being posted on craigslist.

The scammers pose as out of state sellers and probably offer the car at a ridiculously low price and ask you to wire the money. Of course as you may expect the car doesn’t actually exist.

The Nebraska State Patrol reminds individuals, while there are many good, legitimate deals available via the internet, when it comes to big ticket items such as a motor vehicle, if you can’t see it, touch it, or drive it, you may not want to buy it.

Good advice.
