Many if not most of these students have never bought a car before, so they are looked at as easy targets by scam artists.
SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
CarHistory.us.org is launching an educational initiative to help prevent students from being targeted by used car scams, the company announced yesterday.
“August is one of the worst months for students and used car scams,” a CarHistory.us.org spokesman said. “Many of them are going away to college for the first time in September, so they are trying to buy a car now. Scam victims take advantage of this.”
“Students are particularly attractive to scam artists because they will soon be out of state,” the CarHistory.us.org spokesman said. “That means if they buy a lemon, by the time it dies they will be far away and it will be difficult for them to press charges or file a scam complaint.”
“Many if not most of these students have never bought a car before, so they are looked at as easy targets by scam artists,” the CarHistory.us.org spokesman said. “They get taken for a ride.”
CarHistory.us.org is emailing the anti-scam guide to all of their existing customers so they can share it with their children, he said. They will also be making the information available on the members' section of their site.
“We don't want the first lesson students learn to be that the world is full of scam artists,” he said. “We want to protect them.”
