Autocriminalist Shelkov warns of ‘triangle’ scams when selling cars12:01

Among the scammers in Russia, a deception scheme is gaining momentum when, when selling a car, the criminal acts as a seal and deceives both the seller and the buyer at the same time. This was told by the head of the Avtocriminalist expert center Maxim Shelkov.

“When a broker copies an actual ad for a car sale and places it on another site at a lower price, there are often plans for the so-called triangle. Thus, he finds a buyer and bargains with him, posing as a real seller and furnishing a car, bargaining with a car owner as a buyer,” he said.

Then the scammer arranges a meeting with the buyer, saying that the driver or a friend will show the car and all payments will be made by transferring money to the card.

“He tells the seller that his representative will come to him, sign all the documents and take delivery of the car, but he will make the payment on the seller’s card himself. Thus, as soon as the purchase and sale contract is signed, the seal takes money from the buyer to his card and disappears,” explained the forensic expert.
