Why Do People Buy Cars Out-Of-State Without An Inspection?

used car purchased out-of-state no inspection

Buying a used car out-of-state without having it inspected is a foolish buying decision. This is especially true for automobiles with salvage or rebuilt titles.

Update 07/15/19: Apparently this sellers ID has been changed to rebuiltcars0199. Feedback is still good but always inspect used cars bought online. Cover Yer ASS!! 😉 This seller has high feedback and has been a…

Suspended eBay Car Dealers Creating NEW Accounts

Another eBay fraudulent seller. From this complaint on scamguard.com. The articles comments are saying this suspended seller is allowed back after suspension to register another eBay account.

eBay Car Dealers Emailing Me After Unsuccessful Bids

Used Car Dealer

This one reminds me of eBay’s promotion of Your GM Dealer back when GM emerged from bankruptcy. GM was hustling the bidders to buy off of eBay Motors, while auctions were closing with winners and GM refusing to sell the cars. Back when eBay Motors was in it’s prime a dealer could be suspended for contacting bidders ant trying to sell the car without a successful closing on the site.
