Does the Commission Number/VIN and other codes 'match' the vehicle - Decoding the Commission Number/VIN and other codes/serial numbers can help to show if the vehicle is as it left the factory. See Deciphering the Wedge for help on locating and interpreting these details.
Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - Anyone who asks you to is a scammer.
Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible.
Transactions are between users only - No third party provides a "guarantee".
Never give out financial info - Bank account, Social Security Number, PayPal account, etc..
Do not purchase sight-unseen - That amazing "deal" may not exist.
