Listed car on Facebook and Craigslist contacted via text message asked if I could run a report on the car before they came and looked at it. Gave me a link to a website took me to a website called doctorbeepbeepcom. I stupidly filled out a report and it cost 18 some-odd dollars and I gave them my card information like an [censored].

The person told me to email the results to [email protected]

After I told her that I sent it she didn’t reply back and eventually replied sorry to leave you hanging but I cannot afford the car right now.

Hopefully they won’t steal my card info probably going to cancel my card pisses me off that people do this for a living.

I am selling my vehicle on I was contacted via txt by this person yesterday asking if my vehicle was still for sale. I responded it was I just put it on the market the day before. She has asked for me to run a vehicle history report which will cost money to do on the website She wanted me to send her the report to her email [email protected] I told her I would not run the report at my expense. I did go to the website to verify if this is a legitimate business. The 800 number does not work. The address on the web site for Chicago is not valid. I did leave her a voice mail with no response other than another txt message. I am not dumb enough to fall for this scam. I did not spend any money doing this. I just want to make you aware of this company and the person who contacted me so that they are not able to get some other person to purchase a product that might not be legitimate.
