    Massey-Yardley Chrysler in Plantation. The car is great (13 Sahara Unlimited) but this dealership gives a bad name to car dealers' already horrible reputation: they are the nightmare we want to avoid when shopping for a car. They lie and appear to agree with you, and then they change the numbers and play drama as in 'i will lose my job over this', so when you think the issue is settled on a known price, etc, they pull the 'finance department magic' with a huge desk-computer monitor, lights and colors (modern version of the dog and pony show) and you end up with a deal that is nothing close to what you negotiated. They made an art out of scamming at Massey-Yardley Chrysler in Plantation. Greg, Mimi and the whole crew are scam artists, stay away!

    Express Auto Sales (Kenner, LA) Fake/Fraud Dealer

    Dealer Name: Express Auto Sales
    Purported Address: 1910 Airline Drive, Kenner, LA 70062
    Phone Number Used: (504) 315-7515
    Listing Sites Used: Hosted at interland.com

    These frauds do not have any of the vehicles they purport to offer for sale. They are an online car scam in which they lift photos from one site and then offer them as vehicles on their site. They do not list the VINs and a call to the Louisiana Used Motor Vehicle Commission at (225) 925-3870 reveals no such dealer. A dealer license search at http://www.lrumvc.louisiana.gov/search/search.htm confirms a dealer by this name with a license that expired in 2007. This fraud did a lookup and then took a pre-existing dealer's name to provide it legitimacy. Keep your money and steer clear of these scam artists.

    Some of the vehicles "offered" include:

    2010 Infiniti G37X VIN: JN1CV6EL5AM153054
    2009 BMW M3 Convertible VIN: WBSWL93519P331597

    Typical non-dealer advertising vehicles they do not possess in order to get you to wire them money with which they will disappear. You can verify Gold Vehicle Center is not a legitimate dealer simply by calling the Texas DMV at (512) 465-3000 or via by going to https://www.txdmv.gov/contact_us/form/?id=mvd-email


    PS Vehicle Center used to go by Gold Vehicle Center using the same domain name, vehicle-center-com, and the same address and phone number. All these guys did was change the logo and replaced Gold Vehicle Center with PS Vehicle Center. See https://onlinecarscams.com/forums/vi...c.php?f=2&t=65 for more details.
    I just clicked on the link you had, and you can basically tell this "car dealership" is not even close to being legit. Their grammar is totally off, so you know they're not from the US. Not only that, but the cars they have on the website are basically the high end ones, so you know they're gonna ask for a ton of cash. This site has "scam" written all over it. Good catch!

    Planet Premier Auto is a fake dealer. They offer cars for sale they do not have possession of and they work from overseas with mules n the United States to help move money around. Once you wire them money they will disappear. They are a fraud.

    They are also using the address of legitimate car dealer Planet Honda. This is done in an attempt to make them appear legitimate though the phone numbers were changed.

    This fraud uses the same website template as previously reported sites:

    Cars IW takes a different twist on the typical auto scam. You don't call them to order. Your register on their site and they contact you for payment (bank wire transfer only). They then "ship" the non-existent car to you. They are a fraud. This was the same technique used by uvehicles.net (Sidney, NE) which is no longer operational.

    Physical Address Used: 1805 South Haskell Avenue, Dallas, TX 75223

    Websites/Listing Services Used: glbauto.net, carsforsale.com, vehix.com, and autoshopper.com (Dealer ID 10706)

    This is a another fake dealer by the scam group of scammers. This time they set up shop at an address that is not nearly the type of place one would expect to see the high-end cars they purportedly have for sale. They cannot be verified as a legitimate dealer by the State of Texas by calling them at (512) 465-3000. If you look at the photos for their listings you'll find the license plates blacked/whited along with photos from far too many venues and locations to be from a legitimate dealer. In fact, some were taken at Porsche, Land Rover, and Lexus dealers to name a few. They are simply lifting photos off the internet to lure unsuspecting and trusting buyers into wiring them money so they can take off with it.
