How Vehicle History Reports Identify Auto Fraud?

The car buying process is complicated. Even with all of the known scams out there, most consumers just sign all of the paperwork they get from the dealer without reading the fine print simply because it would take days to get through. Most Auto Fraud goes undetected by consumers, simply because they don’t know what to look for during the buying process. Luckily, you can still take legal action against the dealership for auto fraud after you’ve purchased the sale – and many times a Vehicle History Report is the key to the case.

A Vehicle History Report shows a wide variety of information about the car, including any prior accidents that were reported, frame damage, flood damage and a host of other times that the dealership MUST disclose to you when buying a car. Most of the items on a Vehicle History Report will effect how much the vehicle is currently worth, which is why the dealership is required by law to disclose this information to you before purchasing a car.

Many dealerships now offer CarFax reports to prospective buyers to prove that the vehicle is being properly represented. Dealerships that refuse to give a CarFax report should be avoided, as they may be hiding something that they don’t want you to know about. You should also be weary if they promised to give you a carfax report, but then didn’t do so during the purchase process.
