    Quick Motor Sales (Renton, WA) Fraud

    Dealer Name(s): Quick Motor Sales (also uses JP Sports Cars)
    Phone Number(s): (425) 243-5928
    Physical Addresses: 1698 Duvall Ave NE, Renton, WA 98059
    Website(s) Used: http://qmotorsales.com
    Listing Sites Used: quickmotorsales.autodealerspoint.com (no longer up)

    This is another scam where the vehicles don't exist but the scammer is attempting to get you to wire him money overseas. There is no dealer in Washington by this name or at the address provided as verified by State of Washington
    Business Licensing Service at (800) 451-7985

    It appears this fraud site may is not actively maintained but since it remains online I wanted to ensure it was reported.

    Another scam listings cars they do not have for sale. This "dealer" is not a licensed dealer in the State of Louisiana. They attempted to add a bit of spot-legitimacy to their site be stating "Santos Auto House is a trademark of SANTOS AUTOMOTIVE CENTER INC., New Orleans, LA 70119" except that "Santos Auto House" is not trademarked and Santos Automotive Center, Inc. does not know Santos Auto House. They did appropriate Eugenio Santos' name in doing up their website however.

    Dealer ID Theft - Freedom Motors (Abilene, TX)

    Be aware of this scam where the scammer stole the identify of a legitimate dealer. The scam artist used a real dealer's name and address but used a different domain or listing service to carry out the scam. See the story about America Auto Sales in Memphis, TN for an example of how this scam works. In this case these guys copied the real Freedom Motors of Abilene with a new website using Freedom Motors on Auto Dealers Point

    Dealer Name: Freedom Motors
    Email Addresses: abilene.freedom.motors@gmail.com
    Phone Numbers: (325) 261-6986 Fax: (325) 261-9593
    Physical Addresses: 702 S 14th Street, Abilene, Texas 79065 (This address is also the same address for the legitimate Freedom Motors of Abilene
    Website(s) Used: Freedom Motors on Auto Dealers Point
    Listing Sites Used: Freedom Motors on Auto Dealers Point

    The listing site of Freedom Motors on Auto Dealers Point was taken down today but please be vigilant for this fraud.

    Dealer ID Theft - Southern Auto Brokers (Atlanta)

    The scam artist used a real dealer's name and address with with a listing service to carry out the scam. See the story about America Auto Sales in Memphis, TN for an example of how this scam works.

    In this case these guys used the real Southern Auto Brokers with a new website using Southern Auto Brokers on Auto Dealers Point. (Listing service terminated listing account due to the obvious fraud)

    Dealer Name: Southern Auto Brokers
    Email Addresses: southernautobroker@gmail.com
    Phone Number: (678) 619-1609 Fax: (888) 684-9552
    Physical Addresses: 449 Metropolitan Pkwy Sw, Atlanta, Georgia 30315 (This is the address of the legitimate dealer)
    Website(s): Southern Auto Brokers on Auto Dealers Point
    Listing Sites Used: Southern Auto Brokers on Auto Dealers Point Also used Cars.com.

    Why this type of fraud? The scam artist is attempting to circumvent anyone checking up on them. A casual search will show them as a dealer in Yellow Pages, etc... but the phone number is different. The real phone number for the legitimate Southern Auto Brokers is (404) 669-9450.

    Making matters more confusing is that there is another Southern Auto Brokers that is also in the Atlanta area and is a legitimate one in Alpharetta, GA.

    & (888) 797-7819
    Physical Address: 14637 Superior Street, Southgate, Michigan 48195

    Michigan US Cars is an overseas scam attempting to get you to wire them money for cars they do not have. See http://www.kmvt.com/news/local/Fake-...132751173.html for a recent story on their fraud.

    They are not a licensed Michigan car dealer which was verified by doing a dealer search at https://webapps.sos.state.mi.us/lrsa/Default.aspx?id=VD

    This fraud is run by the same fraudster behind the now taken down carsandcarsus.com which use to point to the now terminated carsandcarsus.autodealerspoint.com. They went by the dealer name of US Cars and Cars (Akron, OH).

    Their inventory has many of the exact same cars that were on carsandcarsus.autodealerspoint.com and the site popped up almost immediately after the account and listings were terminated at carsandcars.autodealerspoint.com

    The phone number for the now defunct US Cars and Cars is (330) 400-3063.

    Oskar Cars (Billings, MT) Fraud

    Dealer Name: Oskar Cars
    Email Addresses: contact@oskarcars.com
    Phone Number: (406) 272-5023 Fax: (866) 674-3761
    Physical Address: 5607 Interstate Ave, Billings, MT 59101
    Website: http://www.oskarcars.com

    Oskar Cars is not a licensed Montana car dealer which can be verified by calling Montana Department of Justice Motors Vehicle Division at (406) 444-3933 or via email mvd@mt.gov

    Oskar Cars is hosted on Yahoo but pulls their site data from Site5. Why pay for hosting on one site and pull in your entire site's data from another site unless you want to be able to be back up and running once one site is revealed as a fraud?
