The Grand-Ducale Police call for vigilance when selling a vehicle.
In the context of the sale of private vehicles, the seller’s attention can be diverted, and during this time the buyer pours water into the engine oil.
When the car is tested, the engine immediately starts to smoke (without damage to the mechanics), buyers then demand a high discount because of the engine problem.
This classic scam is now underway in the Grand Duchy.
The Grand-Ducal Police reminds that:
- Never leave a potential buyer alone close to or in the for sale vehicle.
- Never let the buyer try alone the car.
- Make sure the identity of the buyer before purchase or the test of the vehicle.
