ALWAYS PAY ATTENTION WHEN BUYING A CAR

When buying a car from unofficial channels,  always be aware of  possible scams.

Just a case: yesterday 16 people have been arrested in Northen Italy and charged with fraud. The organized crime operating mainly in Milan and Veneto area:  pretending to be car sellers on the internet, they stole customers cars, falsified registration documents and re-selled cars abroad at higher prices.

Tenth of scams have been registered since 2010, especially on high-powered cars, which have been illegaly exported and selled mainly in Central and Eastern Europe. Further investigations brought to light a connection between the local crime and a wider network operating in Milan and Berlin specialized in car scams.

Thus, general advice is to check not only registration documents, but also, for example, serial numbers and any other useful document. Don’t be afraid to ask the seller what you want to know, he should be willing to help you. It is easier to make a safe business deal  with  sincere car dealers as long they have a good reputation along with a positive car dealership online marketing.
