Earlier this month Motorcheck highlighted the rise of a popular internet scam known as the ‘Ghost Car’.
We were pleased when consumer affairs expert Tina Leonard picked up the story and highlighted it with Pat Kenny on RTE Radio 1′s ‘The Today Show’.
On yesterday’s show Tina took time to explain how Motorcheck was able to thwart a scammer after we noticed some unusual activity on our database. We’ve included the segment below for anyone who missed it.

Tina Leonard explains the ‘Ghost Car’ scam to Pat.
This morning we were invited into the Ireland AM studios at TV3 to chat with Mark Cagney about some of the more common problems we come across daily. Car clocking, insurance write off’s, outstanding finance and a variety of other important pieces of information we report on for Irish car buyers were all featured.
TextCheck.ie is a new SMS based service from MotorCheck.ie – the Car History People.
Text VALUE followed by the Reg to 51155 to receive an instant valuation and a free identity check. A great new service that gives buyers and sellers alike the ability to Benchmark the price of any car (or van) in Ireland.
One piece of news that we couldn’t ignore this week was the new FREE ‘Topaz App’ that was launched. It’s something we’ve been looking forward to seeing in the app store for a while now. Motorcheck provides the data the app uses for its mileage check facility and is a great example of how our automotive data can be used in innovative ways by our business customers.
