Sham Website Poses As Legitimate Dealership

Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota was alerted recently to a case of business identity theft targeting Import Auto Sales LLC, a used-car dealership located in St. Louis Park, Minn. A fraudulent website with a similar business name and using the company’s physical address attempted to solicit deposits via prepaid debit cards by deceiving consumers nationwide into thinking they were transacting with Import Auto Sales. BBB has been able to help get the bogus website taken down by working with the Web registrar unknowingly hosting the site.

The fraudulent website (import-auto-store.com) first came to the attention of the local BBB through a report from BBB in Columbia, S.C.
