Auto Marketing Group Scam Las Vegas, Nevada
*Consumer Suggestion: Contact the State of Nevada licensing officials..here's why..
*Consumer Comment: What I would have done..
we had our truck listed on kijiji, these guys called a couple days after it was listed and called often. I had been told about companies like this who want to sell your vehicle for you but want you to pay 500.00 first. they had called and said that they had a buyer who would be getting the truck in two days. not thinking everything through because I was working and wanted to get back to work quickly I agreed and gave my cc#. I called visa shortly after to report the scam as I had no contact information ect for them. Visa said that they had already put it though on a pre-authorization. I cancelled my card but cannot report fraud through visa until thursday. The name that visa said they used to take the money is Classified Autos. Their number is 1-888-000-0000 or 1-000-000-0000. It took a bit of research to actually find a number to contact them at. I looked up their address and came up with Auto Marketing Group. I called and spoke to my "financing officer" Richard Stone. He was very rude and would not refund my money. He did however send confirmation of payment and an email which is as follows:
Thank you for taking time with me to go over our service.
