reliableusedcarsinc.com

As a result of my blog and posts on these scammers, I have been threatened and an attempt to hack my data has occured.
Its quite obvious I have put a "dent" in their car sales scam.

Here are the scammer's newest sites:

Look at this Google Search data which contains all the stolen CarFax Reports.

Fake MerchantCircle reviews on superautosalesus.com:
http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Superstore.Used.Cars.800-396-1867
Interesting to note that MerchantCircle still has the site listed as verified.
How many scam sites has MerchantCircle verified?

Also involved is the site www.e-websitesecurity.org
It offers fake verifications of the scam sites.
Current scam site:
http://www.e-websitesecurity.org/check_domain.php?domain=SuperAutoSalesUS.com
Their older site is still listed on e-websitesecurity.org
http://www.e-websitesecurity.org/check_domain.php?domain=SuperAutoSalesUSA.com
In fact, all their previous fake sites are still listed.
Just replace the URLS.

MoneyGram warning about car scams.
(Shame that WalMart doesn't warn people because the victims don't go to the MoneyGram site to purchase the transfers. The scammers tell the victims to specifically use WalMart.):

The scammers found my post on Norton Safe Web and added their own fake recommendations:
http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=superautosalesus.com

superautosalesusa.com was these scammer's newest site.
www.superautosalesusa.com
It appears dead.

The scammers previously used:
http://www.e-websecurity.org/ Now dead.
To falsely verify their fake sites and make people think they were legitimate.
They were also using MerchantCircle to "verify" their fake site:
Posting has been deleted.
http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Superstore.Used.Cars.800-396-1867
http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Super.Auto.Sales.702-399-1400

NEVER send money using MoneyGram for items on the internet.

Here is a MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV)news story on one of these scammer's previous sites.

And an update to the story where a victim speaks out.

Its also on the BBB site:

Be VOCAL
File a local police report in order to get a Case Number.
You will need a case number to file a loss on your income taxes.
File a complaint here:

reliableusedcarsinc.com is dead.

www.masslenmotors.com is dead.
masslenmotors.com is dead
heavensentusedcars.com is dead.

Again they were using MechantCircle to place fake recommendations for the fraud site heavensentusedcars.com.

I contacted MerchantCricle's TOS, mentioned these scammer's previous posts on their site and was told:

Thank-you for contacting MerchantCircle, helping local businesses find more customers online.

I never asked for the scammer's information.
I reported the fake data to the email address:
tosviolation@merchantcircle.com
BUT the way MerchantCircle has their site set up you have to become a member to report abuse.


Their clone fake site:
anycreditcarsales.com is now dead.

I am sure there will be new sites as this scam seems to have been quite lucrative.

This is a very popular thread.

The site was reported twice by aa419.org:
http://reports.scampatrol.org/NEW/reportview.php?ReportID=12605

Read how the scammers have tried to defend their fake site:
http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.reliableusedcarsinc.com

Look at all the fake CARFAX reports on the site:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&as_qdr=all&q=+site:reliableusedcarsinc.com+%22reliableusedcarsinc.com%22&sa=X&ei=QtwLTKvNEMH58AbN0YWLBw&ved=0CAIQqAQwBA

These scammers also set up a fake site to legitimize reliableusedcarsinc.com
website-secure.org
http://www.website-secure.org/check_domain.php?domain=ReliableUsedCarsInc.com
website-secure.org is not in ANY way related to WebsiteSecure.org
WebsiteSecure.org is a legitimate professional business.

The scammers are also using Google ads:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:zA-7RZ1WYwsJ:search.go2net.com/go2net/ws/redir/qcat%3DWeb/qcoll%3Drelevance/qkw%3DCraigslist%2520Cars%2520Tulsa%2520Oklahoma/rfcp%3DRightNav/rfcid%3D302362/qlnk%3D1/_iceUrlFlag%3D11%3F_IceUrl%3Dtrue+reliableusedcarsinc.com&cd=14&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

What is incredible about these scammers
is their use of services by Merchant Circle.
They were "Verified" by MerchantCircle!
http://www.merchantcircle.com/bulletins/Reliable.Used.Cars.Inc.816-333-2913

The verification is now removed but the other site (link below is still listed as verified)

Look at the fake customer review:

"Reliable Used Cars Inc 5 Thank you
When I bought my Mustang in 2007 I wrote that I was completely satisfied with www.reliableusedcarsinc.com and in particular with Yolanda Barron. The same holds true today. This is my 3rd purchase of a Ford vehicle since 2007. For me it's simple; when I need a new vehicle I just get online at www.reliableusedcarsinc.com, look for Yolanda, and know that I will be completely satisfied with the vehicle and the experience. Great Place To buy cars.

If you try to report the listing on MerchantCircle:
http://www.merchantcircle.com/help/

it appears you either have to register for an account or as it states:

"No Thanks
I do not wish to register at this time, and understand that it may take up to several weeks to receive a response."

several weeks ?????

I was scammed by reliableusedcarsinc.com , please help me. They insert a virus that changes the results on google searches. Nobody can see this post on google, from the moment you enter the website you are doomed. Anybody who entered the website got the virus. You can post whatever you want here, nobody will ever see it.

no_muie said...

You need to send me an email.

Steven Senciewicz said...

They also put a keylogger inside your computer, they probably already know who you are if you entered one of the websites. I have a friend that works for Norton, he found the viruses, the keylogger is nothing she has seen before, extremely effective. You ask me to send you an email? How can I do that?

Silence is indeed a scammers best friend, silence you will find online, since now the virus they have don't let you see this blog or anything else. I was lucky enough to use another computer.

Meteor said...

I know this websites.Nasty virus don't let you see anything bad about them. You have no chance to know anything. Keyloger too probably. There are like 40 websites more, active at this moment, I can't see any of them here. All the websites you have here, none are new, most of them are old and dead.

no_muie said...

What are the 40 sites then?
Remember, silence is the scammer's best friend.

almost got ripped off - yesterday (6/30/10), they listed 815 e. broadway, louisville, ky as their physical address. today (7/1/10) - it's suddenly 800 morton blvd, hazard, ky. if you look on google maps - the first address corresponds to a legit car dealership (but way too small for the number of cars they claim to stock). today's location is a shopping center without a dealership at all.

yikes. so glad i didn't actually send them any money - i came mighty close....
