Who are we

The Vehicle Safe Trading Advisory Group (VSTAG) is an industry forum created to help protect buyers and sellers of pre-owned vehicles from fraud during the online buying and selling process. To help in achieving this aim, VSTAG members may share information on known and suspected fraudulent advertisements.

VSTAG helps online car buyers and sellers by:

  • Offering advice to consumers and car dealers on how to avoid vehicle-related fraud
  • Sharing intelligence between members that could reduce vehicle-related fraud, including advice on current scams and details of fraudulent ads
  • Developing national best practice guidelines for members on vehicle-related crime prevention and investigation
  • Liaising with law enforcement agencies and regulatory authorities
