Vinchecked.com / Officialvin.com / vehicle background check

Contact information:

Had someone call from [protected], when I answered they hung up and then the texts started from same number. He wanted me to run my VIN through website he provided (officialvinreport.com) which sent me to Vinchecked.com, and send the report to his girlfriends email Amymackenzius@yahoo.com. His texts were very excited to buy the truck, even would pay cash, full asking price if VIN came back clean. I entered VIN and then it wanted Credit card info for $18 charge. So I researched the reviews and discovered it's a scam. Just let you know it's still happening as of 1-29-18.

    Just happened to me from my posting about a car as well. Texas area code, but call disconnected when I answered, I called back but got a woman's voice but no name. The scammer texted me sending me to website acuratevin.com which redirected as well to official.vin. The email was then HannahBucklandWSX@yahoo.com.

    Just happened to me as well. Got call. Tried to call back, does not even ring. Guy texts back saying this is not a good time to talk but asks for the car and wants to see the history from vinelitecheck.com, which then redirects you to official.vin

    August 2018 got 2 calls 25 minutes apart from Pennsylvania 570 750-5462 that I didn’t answer (I’m in CA), got texts 25 minutes after that saying they couldn’t talk because of bad reception and could we converse via text. Wanted me to email a report from http://vinnchecksafe.com to her at mailto:JacksonJoanym@yahoo.com. Had a funny feeling about it and decided to do a scam search, glad I did before spending 18.95. Thought it a good idea to get a report so I paid 6.95 at https://www.vincheckpro.com and will add it to my Craigslist ad.

    Just happened to me. Started with a missed call then the text. I’m always super cautious about things like this. I never really did the report cause the website looked fishy. It was just made in 2018 was sign #1
