Con Artists Use Tractor, Truck Sale Ads to Target Victims
The Kentucky Attorney General has issued a warning in regards to advertisements appearing in the online and print classified sections of local newspapers.
The Attorney General warns that the affected counties are Bath, Barren, Franklin, and Jefferson.There are two ads involved in this scam. One of these ads involves a heavily discounted John Deere tractor, and the other focuses on Toyota or Chevrolet pickup trucks.
The sale ad doesn’t look suspicious by the seller providing pictures of the vehicle and a contact number. But when people call the phone number, there’s no answer and the potential buyer receives a text messages from a person who identifies herself as Molly Carter.
Carter claims this is a discounted product that she needs to off-load quickly. The Attorney General says to be cautions when interacting online with those whom you might purchase a product from.
