Walt Prowls the Cariboo

Walt heads to new territory to sell his vehicles illegally, leaves future troubles in his wake

Walt is a curber.

A curber is an individual posing as a private seller, but selling vehicles for profit as a business.

 

 

 

Curbers get junk cars and sell them from parking lots. They advertise through local newspapers and online ads. They do not disclose a vehicle‘s history to the buyer, hiding serious accident damage or a rolled back odometer. Curbers have the same phone number listed for many cars. They ask, “Which car?” when you call. They say they’re selling the vehicle for a friend or have a sad story. They’ll have you meet them in a parking lot and rush you into buying. The name on the vehicle documents will not match their ID. Curbers want cash and will want you to lie on the transfer form to save money.

 

Curbers offer none of the protections the law provides for purchases from a Vehicle Sales Authority licensed dealer. Remember, if you buy from a curber and the deal goes bad, you’re on your own!  Find a VSA licensed dealer here.
