Auto Marketing Group — same company as Auto Sellers Network
Like the compaintants for Auto Sellers Network, I received a telephone call from a representative stating they had several buyers for my vehicle at my asking price. I have it currently listed with www.cars.com and because it is in perfect condition, I am asking top dollar. He told me their company offers financing to buyers who can't qualify elsewhere and these buyers must buy a vehicle listed on their website. Additionally, the buyers are unable to negotiate the price and therefore I would be guaranteed my asking price. (The company would not need to inspect the vehicle.) I would need to pay $500 up front, but my asking price would be $500 higher and the advertising would therefore be free to me. The buyer would be paying the "advertising cost." I told him I would be happy to use them, but would only let them take the $500 off the sales price and send me the check first. Of course he said he could not do that. The reason was the company does not have a broker's license. It sounded very fraudulent to me, so I told him I would need to do some research. <br />
The address listed is a post office box at Mainly Mail and the lady their said they forward Auto Marketing Group's mail to Canada once a week. She could not give me anymore information. I also came across an "article" written by someone at Auto Marketing Group that advertise their business. The phone number at the bottom of the "article" was [protected] and went to Auto Seller Network. Therefore, since Auto Seller Network has so many complaints against them with the BBB and their accredidation was revoked in 12/2009, they have obviously changed to a new name. STAY AWAY FROM AUTO MARKETING GROUP. IT IS THE SAME AS AUTO SELLERS NETWORK.
