Motorcheck highlights Car Scam on RTE

Posted by Shane Teskey on 24 February 2012 in Ask the Experts, How we've helped

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.
