LAS VEGAS, PENNSYLVANIA -- Got a call today -- June 8, 2018 -- from "Shawn" who claimed to be in Las Vegas. Wanted $309 upfront to put ads for my vehicle in all of the relevant auto selling media. Says I have priced it too low. Claims he makes his money not on the ads -- that money he said goes to buy the ads -- but on the buyer for financing on signature loans, warranties, interest on the loans etc. Therefore, I should price the vehicle above its actual value as listed on AutoTrader and CraigsList.
In other words, I should expect a buyer to pay more than the vehicle is worth. Where is there such a buyer? There probably is a stupid buyer somewhere out there in the world but how long will I have to wait for a stupid buyer to appear? Right now I have listed the vehicle on AutoTrader for free! It all sounded like a scam while I was on the phone and asking questions.
I told Shawn I would think about this deal and he was quick to get off the call. After he hung up in a hurry, I did five minutes of research and there are plenty of reports about this scam: people not getting their refunds, people who paid but never saw their vehicles in ads etc. If it sounds too good to be true... don't do it!
SURE SALE AUTO, LOCAL DEALER MARKETING SERVICES, AUTO SELLER NETWORK, SPECIALTY AUTO NETWORK, EXPERT AUTO, USA MOTORS, ONE STOP MOTORS… All the same company… All from 702 area code. Caller are desperate low-paid(commission only) scumbags from one of these BS market your auto companies. They will lie to you and tell you they have a buyer for your car. They spam Auto Trader and Craigslist ads. They will lie about having buyers, financing, marketing, websites, etc., anything to get you to give them your credit card number so they can charge you for non-existent marketing services.
They also do not follow the law and call numbers on the National Do Not Call List. They also do NOT maintain a Federally Required Do Not Call List internally. Asking them to put you on their Do Not Call List will get you nowhere. These scumbags will call back again and again and again to harass you. Avoid these frauds! Also, after they call, please go to: ** and file a complaint against these frauds for calling you if you are on the national do not call list or if you have already told these scumbags to put you on a Federally required internal do not call list.
Also, these companies are VERY WELL KNOWN for coming to these sites and posting fake praise for their company. It's part of their plan. They know they get flagged all over the internet and search out the complaints. They post fake good reports about themselves continually.
ARIZONA -- I'm not going to say these people are 100% fraud just yet. I was selling a vehicle on autotrader.com and craigs list. I kept getting phone calls from auto seller network. There pitch goes like this, we have contacts nobody else has and can sell vehicles quicker than any one else. They go on and on. I agreed to pay them around 499 and if it didn't sale I would be out of 100 dollars. The next day came and I was skeptical about giving them money up front. I could not find an e-mail they were supposed to send me I went all over it with no luck. I had to wait for my credit card statement to find a number to call them. I then called them and was told I had to wait 90 days.
She said we would send you a check. So I wrote down the 90th day on a piece of paper. after the 90th day came a couple of days later I contacted them and they said I had to send out forms and I only had 7 days to have it sent to them. If I sold the car and my neighbor bought the vehicle, I would not get a refund at all. I also had to get a power of attorney to see if I still had the vehicle. This is my complaint they were not honest up front about the 7 day policy and it has been a month and no refund. If they refund me I might add to this to the review.
CA, CALIFORNIA -- I can't believe it. Thank you so much for sending me a buyer. Although he did try and haggle me, one phone call to my account manager at the Auto Seller Network helped me negotiate a fair selling price. I couldn't be happier. Hopefully you approve my financing application and I can buy a vehicle from your site. I really want a BMW M3 and I have faith you will approve me. I feel silly for having debated signing up for 3 weeks with **.
I assumed it was a scam and had no faith, but I have to say ** convinced me otherwise and got me to list. He is definitely a valuable asset to your organization. Thanks again **, and the Auto Seller Network family. I'm so happy you sold my car and will recommend you to my friends. Here I would like to suggest to all for a great auto service provider.
PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- This company is a FRAUD. I used their service and didn't get one phone call about my car. I followed their refund guarantee terms & conditions 100%. Since April 15, 2009, I have been promised my refund eleven times. I'm still waiting for my refund and you will be to. They should change their name to CUSTOMER RIP-OFF AUTO SELLER NETWORK.
