Some of these dealers may trick you into sending them the money in order for them to bring you the car. Suppose you saw the car with your own eyes and decided to communicate with the dealer via phone, never send any one any money under any circumstances.

Ensure that as you pay for that car, you sign some documents to show that you have purchase the car and that you are now the rightful owner.

Suppose you decide to buy a car from an importer. Make sure that the importer follows all the rules and regulations of both your country and the country he is importing the car from. There are countries that do not allow anyone to import cars that are more than five years old. Make sure you do not end up buying a car that exceeded those years.

This might put you to risk of having to deal with the government itself. By the time you explain where you bought the car, things will not be good.

If you decide to buy the car online, you ought to be careful also. This is the riskiest place to buy cars form. This is because you only get to scrutinize the cars online in their web sites. These dealers post the pictures of the cars that they are selling and it is for you to decide which car you want but online. The application is made online and so is the payment. It takes a lot of guts and courage to take such a risk.

Dealing with people you have never met and trusting them enough to send them money is not an easy task. You will only be able to physically see your car when taking it. You could be tricked in a way that the car in the web site might not be the same car you are being sold. Be very careful and ensure to check the car even the last minute. This could be your chance of knowing whether the car is genuine or not. If not you can sue them in order to get your money back.
