Pretty simple folks, anyone can start a site and anyone can get legit companies to advertise on their site all for free. This makes them look legit. THEY ARE NOT!!!! You have your vehicle listed somewhere on the internet don't you???? Yes of course you do!! Either Craig's List or Kijiji or Auto Trader don't you? Yes of course you do --- that is how they got your telephone number and know what vehicle it is that you are trying to sell. Now here is where the B.S comes in.
You receive a call from autotradenet.com - keep in mind that they carefully chose the name to imitate the autotrader. They tell you whatever it is that you want to hear. After all, you have a vehicle in your driveway don't you, and you want to get rid of it don't you? OF COURSE!!!!
They come on with all kinds of stories and are very very gooooood at it. They either have buyers lined up, or they are approved for financing or they have connections and can get it moved and offer you money back guarantees , and they can sell it within two to three weeks, or they will have some guy banging at your door this weekend or blah blah blah, and they get more and more and more creative and confident with all of the lies. NOW LET'S TELL THE TRUTH:
The guy who owns the site gets 60% and the guy who is selling you the lies gets 40% of whatever they can get out of you $199 or $299 or $399 or $499 and they post your ad on their site and you get no calls. Why?? Because no one has ever heard of the site and no one ever will, and it is all a scam to get your credit card money and that is all!!!!! The rest is simply a bunch of crap that they make up off the top of their heads to convince you that your car will sell. This is how the scam operates folks!!
Now what are you going to do? Hunt them down - not likely, Pay a lawyer $2000 retainer to get your $300 bucks back --no What then??? - Nothing except be pissed off, and while you are getting pissed off, they are on to their next call to the next guy who has a car, suv, boat, RV, heavy equipment or whatever for sale . DONT DO IT - List on KIJIJI or Craigs List or AutoTrader or any FREE SITES, but NEVER NEVER NEVER PAY ONE OF THESE GUYS OR YOU WILL HAVE BEEN HAD!!!!!!!!!
