Beware of unreliable car evaluation sites

7/3/2014

ECC Sweden encourages consumers to be wary of car evaluation sites on the internet. These types of services often costs money, even though they appear to be free of charge. 

ECC Sweden have received many calls and reports about different car evaluation sites on the internet. The consumers contacting the ECC have often ordered a car evaluation believing that the service is for free, until an unexpected invoice has been sent to them without their consent.

Many of the deceived consumers have gotten in contact with the evaluation sites through ads on Facebook, in pop-up-windows or similar. The reports sent to the ECC shows that there has been little or no information about the costs of the services offered in the ads.

The ECC is therefore encouraging consumers to be careful while reading the terms and conditions before making an order or entering any personal information, and also to try to find out more about the company making the offer.
