Federal and state authorities are hoping to speak with Oklahomans who may have been involved in a scam involving the purchase of automobiles.
The scheme involves someone telling a car buyer he or she can get a new car for free and not make any payments if he or she gives the person their rebate. The scammer then promises to invest the rebate in a trust or co-op, and the profits will be used to make the car payments, according to a news release.
The car buyer is then asked to make referrals to other potential car buyers.
Authorities ask anyone who believes they may have been a victim of this scheme to call the FBI at 290-7770 or the state attorney general’s office at 521-3921.
Potential victims can also contact the attorney general at firstname.lastname@example.org.
