Reporting A Scam
For the most part, buying and selling a car online is a safe process. However, you should always be aware of potential scams. A scammer may try to use the anonymous environment of the internet to carry out a scam. When you’re buying or selling your car, it’s important to be sure that you are dealing with a genuine person.
If you see an unusual or suspicious-looking ad or receive an email that you think might be a scam, we encourage you to report it to the Cartopia team. Many scams can be avoided with a little caution.
