Big ticket items, such as vehicles, motorcycles, and RVs are at the top of consumer’s lists right now-but they also top the lists as targets for scammers.
Nationwide, USA (PRWEB) December 21, 2013
The holidays produce the busiest online shopping season of the year. When consumers flock to online purchasing for big ticket items, such as cars, scammers look to them as easy prey for falling victim to scam. One company, WeGoLook helps to educate consumers while proving verification of vehicles this year.
New and used autos, motorcycles and RVs are at the top of many consumers’ lists right now-but they also top the lists as targets for scammers. Cybercriminals will lure their victim in this holiday season by creating fake listings on eBay Motors or other auction platforms. The potential perfect gift may even seem too good to be true with generously completive pricing and close to perfect conditions.
Unfortunately, consumers need to have a heightened awareness to online scamming this season, especially when purchasing a vehicle. Scammers will use the fake listings as an opportunity to have an individual pay for an item with the promise of shipping it from the seller. In many cases, the consumer is left empty handed and without their new car or electronic when the promised shipment is never received.
Fortunately, WeGoLook can ensure online purchasing decisions are safe and secure. The company specializes in dispatching one of their 10,000+ Lookers (Agents) to verify the existence of the item and seller’s claims. Lookers collect dynamic data through photos, video, and visual observation of the item onsite. WeGoLook Reports start at $59 and includes current photos, visual observation, VIN verification, and cosmetic damage information. Buyers can also purchase additional information about the vehicle such as videos of working demonstration, video tours, additional photos, rush services, and customized data capture.
WeGoLook has helped customers save thousands of dollars by avoiding auto purchases that were not accurately represented, as well as giving clients a peace of mind when purchasing items online.
For example; a potential consumer has been watching a Honda Civic listed on eBay Motors that appears to be legitimate. When dispatching a local Looker to the item, it is discovered that the car was misrepresented and severely damaged or the seller was unwilling to meet with the Looker to verify the item’s existence.
