Vehicle sale and title scam

A ring of scammers is running ads around the country for vehicles with impossibly low prices to attract buyers, only to hit them up for a 20% “title clearing fee”. A police department in South Dakota is warning residents in the jurisdiction to avoid such scams.

As always, Consumers Title Resources advises consumers to never purchase a vehicle unless the seller has a valid verifiable title that they hand over to you at the time of purchase, and will provide an ID to match the name on the title.
