PSA: Vehicle History Report Scam

Just a heads-up for folks like me who may be selling their RV. My very first contact was from a person demanding a vehicle history report from a specific site before he'd even come look at the coach. When I offered ANY other source of report, he insisted even harder that I was trying to scam HIM.

The FTC describes this scam in detail:

If this happens to you, be sure to report it!

Thanks for the heads up. Seems there's always someone with a scam that only benefits themselves.

I've never heard of a potential buyer demanding the seller to pay for information they want or need to make the decision to buy or not. That call would have lasted about 30 seconds. My offer..."Come see the unit, if you like it, you are welcome to the VIN and you can get your own report. Oh yeah, have a nice day". Click.

On those 'I (we) can help you to sell your whatever' calls, once I confirm there is no intension to buy, I hang up with no further response. Same with similar response, delete.

Yep, for sure. Definitely the down-side to selling privately is the randoms who have no real interest. Also the scammers! Hah.
