In recent years in Russia has spread a new fraudulent scheme in buying and selling cars in the secondary market. Criminals rent a car, then sell to an unsuspecting buyer.

according to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” with reference to the expert forensic Maxim of silk, deceptive scheme is simple enough. Criminals under false pretenses lease the car, then forged a power of attorney to the traffic police issue a duplicate title, and then resell the vehicle to the victim.

this episode of fraud occurred recently in the suburbs. The man acquired a certain legal entity Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which asked a suspicious low price. The buyer also did not bother that the seller was the only duplicate title. After the transaction, the new owner put the car on accounting in traffic police, but after a while found out that it passes on one criminal case, in which the victims are the former owners.

the Silks are advised to be vigilant when buying cars. In this situation, the buyer will be able to avoid criminal penalties, but illegally purchased the car he would have to return, said the criminalist.
