Scams with Salvaged Cars
The problem is not with the salvaged car but it’s with the unscrupulous sellers and their dishonest strategy. They hide the fact that the vehicle is salvaged and sell it as a new car for it’s current market price. They will alter the vehicle, paint and polish it to make it look new. The buyer will be unaware of the fact that it was destroyed or buried under mud or water and will hopefully discover that he is been cheated when he finds the traces of mud beneath the seat or when the metal starts corroding.
Another scam called car clipping where two damaged car parts will be welded together to make it look as a new car and being sold. But such vehicles are at high risks. In order to avoid being a victim of such scams, check and verify if vehicle title is in or out of state before you buy. Perform a thorough check if any dents are being covered, any gap between the doors, odd looking patched paints or any spots. Perform a proper check by a known mechanic and be free of scams.
