VSTAG - Vehicle Safe Trading Advisory Group
Auto Trader, eBay Motors, Motors.co.uk, Pistonheads & the Finance & Leasing Association have joined together in partnership to form the Vehicle Safe Trading Advisory Group (VSTAG), an industry forum created to combat vehicle related fraud.
As part of its aim to protect both buyers and sellers of cars, vans and motorcycles from fraud, VSTAG has published a consumer advice guide and is now sharing information on known and suspected fraudulent adverts.
Whilst the process of buying or selling a vehicle is usually straightforward, both buyers and sellers can leave themselves open to becoming the victim of fraud or other crimes. VSTAG urges consumers to be careful not to let the excitement of buying or selling a vehicle compromise their safety or money
VSTAG is forged from a strong partnership of the UK’s leading online car sales companies, and the Police. We’re working together to reduce online vehicle crime.
