Verifying Phone Numbers of Car Dealers

There are instances when buying a car is indeed cheaper when bought form a car dealer than buying from a car company's showroom. A car dealer can even offer freebies with your purchase. You also get your hands to offers that are not usually seen or offered in regular showrooms. Those are just some of the perks of checking out car offers by a car dealer. There are actually lots more.

When you receive calls from supposed car dealers, be very careful. Especially if the call was unsolicited, never entertain such callers. They might trick you into buying cars that you wont ever get your hands on even when you pay for them. Never give any personal number either. These callers are professional criminals who are trying to steal your identity and make loans using your name.

What you need to do when you get a call like this is to drop the call altogether. If you got stuck with the conversation, have presence of mind, and instead of letting the caller asking you lots of questions, be alert and be the one to ask him endless questions until he wont be able to give any sensible answer to you. Get the number that called you and get sufficient details so you can make the decision. Report the incident promptly.

You should also involve your family by informing them about the call. Share the word to others so that more people are aware that such scams are happening and that everyone should be warned about it so necessary precautionary measures may be taken. Be careful with unsolicited calls. They are rampant today victimizing many private persons and pocketing millions of dollars. Never let your guards down.
