Car Rental Scam

Michigan State Police issue a warning about the latest scam out there... This one involves leased cars.

Police say the con artists approach people with good credit, asking them to join a car leasing agreement. The victims are asked to buy the cars on credit and told they will be able to get a good deal on the cars.

Shortly after the purchase, the cars are declared a loss when the vhicles are either stolen or wrecked, leaving the victim with the bill to pay the finance company since the cars are in their name. State police advise against joining any similar activites.
