WATCH: RSLPF Circulates Video Advisories In Response To Surge In Online Car Sale Scams


The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) has circulated video advisories in response to a surge in online car sale scams, warning that the fraudsters are becoming more sophisticated.

Armed scammers have beaten up and robbed some would-be buyers

And the police have said that the scams are becoming more prevalent.

As a result, the RSLPF has released two videos to help prevent people from becoming victims.

The first video is entitled: Avoid Car Scams.

A second video provides advice on how to spot red flags.

  1. lol in a way it good to happen to them because most people who want to buy a car they always want to break you down for a cheaper price like they want to get the vehicle for next to nothing. I heard of a guy who came to buy a car and he meet up with the seller in town next to a business place with cash in hand the seller took the money and told the guy to wait there he going and do something higher up the street not to far, poor jab the buyer he waited for over an hour and never saw anyone again Loool

  2. Like seriously, in 2023 there are still stupid people!! Who buys a vehicle without seeing it, driving it, inspecting it to ensure that its ok, even bringing a known mechanic. I hate scammers/thieves and they should face the full extent of the law, however the victims,majority of times bring it on themselves…
