Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why should I buy my next car from a dealership like Adrian Brien Automotive instead of over the internet from an auction site such as eBay?
Great question… Recently AdelaideNow reported that scammers had ripped off more than $150,000 from at least a dozen South Australians.
The scammers duplicate genuine newspaper or online adverts for vehicles, boats or caravans, reduce the sale price to attract inquiries then swiftly redirect prospective buyers to bogus online sites and bank accounts.
Police Commercial Electronic Crime Branch Detective Superintendent Jim Jeffery said scammers typically wanted transactions done online so they could slip in bogus links.
