Glassdoor is a website where current and former employees anonymously review companies, founded in 2007.

The fraudsters decided to use a spoof for promoting the same fake escrow company:

Some of the "reviews":

February 4, 2020
No opinion of CEO
I like the fact that they provide both the company and the driver contact information once the shipment has been dispatched. It makes the coordination on both ends a lot better. No complaints on the process from start to finish.

January 24, 2020
VTE Automotive Cargo
"Great service!"
No opinion of CEO
I researched many companies that transport cars before I finally decided on VTE Logistics. They had a reputable reputation with the BBB (excellent rating) and great customer service. They kept me well informed with email quotes, phones calls and texts. The driver came to pick up the car on the day they stated (he was here right on the time he said), Drivers was really nice and courteous.


The fake VTE Automotive was registered on May 27. Still, their "happy clients" dealt with the "company" before it was even active.

There is no mention of any VTE Logistics on the BBB website...

Report the case to the police as soon as possible.

Contact your bank and report for fraud the bank account used to receive your money. Also ask your bank to contact the receiver bank about that bank account.

Your bank can tell you if there is any chance for you to recover the money you lost.

Without reporting, there is no chance to recover anything.

Try please to forward to my email address (you find it under my post) the emails, pictures and documents you received from the fraudsters. The details you share may save someone else soon.

A new scammer: VTIS Automotive Cargo

Unread postby Rudi_N » Fri Nov 06, 2020 2:42 pm

There is a new scammer: VTIS Automotive Cargo.

Hello xxx ,all the documents are already at the company, if you are still interested, I will send you all the documents by car as soon as possible. The car is in excellent condition, it is a non-smoking car .
We can do everything through the transport company, they are taking care of everything and they can arrange the delivery to your address. If you decide to buy the car, I will need your full details (Full name, Address, Phone number). As soon as I have your details, I will pass them to the transport company and they will start the procedure. Next step they will get in touch with you and send you an invoice for the car, the tracking number to check the status of the delivery at any time and all the rest of the transaction details. After you receive the invoice, you'll need to make the payment by bank transfer to the transport company and they will hold the money into their bank account until you receive, inspect and agree to keep the car. For the buyer's peace of mind, I've also added a 5 DAYS REFUND POLICY so if you don't like the car, you'll receive a full refund, no fees or taxes deducted. If the car is not as described, the transport company will transfer the money back into your bank account. If you decide to keep the car after the 5 days inspection period, you will need to sign the owner transfer papers and only then I will get the money from the transport company.

I will call you after I get your information.
Regards,

Hello Lars,

I have a question about the car. Is it a non-smoking car?The car is stocked at a transport firma. Can the car be brought to my home in Lommel-Belgium.
I also need a few papers:

- The car has a certificate of registration (der Bericht der Eintragung)
- A certificate of conformity (das Konformitäts-Zertifikat)
- Purchase of invoice (die Rechnung oder Einkaufsrechnung)

I would like to look at the car before I buy it. Can this be done.
When could this be possible. I can actually come every day. It is about 260 km.

Best regards, xxx

Guten Tag ,

Vielen Dank für Ihr Interesse, der Preis beträgt 22.000 EUR.
Das Auto hat eine vollständige Service Geschichte, einen hervorragenden Zustand, siehe Innen- und Außenfotos, keine Unfälle, Sommer- und Winterreifen sind in sehr gutem Zustand, fast 90% neu.

Das Auto ist in Deutschland zugelassen, es hat Kennzeichen und deutsche Dokumente.
Ich musste wegen der Entscheidung meiner Firma nach Stockholm, Schweden, ziehen. Ich verkaufe das Auto aufgrund eines persönlichen Problems. Außerdem gibt es viele Dinge, die jetzt Vorrang haben. Deshalb muss dieses Auto fahren.
Aufgrund der Tatsache, dass ich sehr beschäftigt mit meiner Arbeit bin und nicht zu viel zu Hause bleibe, habe ich das Auto bei der Transportfirma im Lager gelassen und es kann an den neuen Besitzer geliefert werden.
Das Kennzeichen kann sofort auf Ihren Namen umgeschrieben werden. Wenn Sie dieses Fahrzeug kaufen möchten, antworten Sie bitte und ich werde Ihnen weitere Details mitteilen.

Für eine bessere Zusammenarbeit schreiben Sie mir bitte in englischer Sprache, da mein Deutsch nicht so gut ist.

Freundliche Grüße,

/ (translation)

Good day ,

Thank you for your interest, the price is EUR 22,000.
The car has a full service history, excellent condition, see inside and outside photos, no accidents, summer and winter tires are in very good condition, almost 90% new.

The car is registered in Germany, it has license plates and German documents.
I had to move to Stockholm, Sweden because of my company's decision. I am selling the car because of a personal problem. Also, there are many things that now have priority. That's why this car has to drive.
Due to the fact that I am very busy with my work and do not stay at home too much, I have left the car in the warehouse with the transport company and it can be delivered to the new owner.
The license plate can be changed immediately to your name. If you are interested in buying this vehicle please reply and I will give you more details.

For a better cooperation, please write to me in English, as my German is not that good.

Kind regards,
Rudi_N

And again - clones of reputable review sites are used to give credibility to the fake escrow website.

The real Trustpilot is active from trustpilot.com.

The fake one is active from trustpilot.online

The fake escrow company was registered in September. Still, their "happy clients" were actively praising the company months before that:

Very happy customer
The whole team was friendly and efficient. Very happy to recommend. Took a lot of the stress out of the day and I couldn't believe how quickly everyone worked.

I have used VTIS Automotive Cargo now for two relocations and the service is excellent. There is personable approach, excellent handling relocation from start to finish and very caring approach. I have enjoyed interactions with the office and relocation team was fantastic.

The team that carried out our move were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. They were a polite, hardworking group who worked so well together. They arrived on time and worked til we were moved in to our new home. I would have no hesitation in recommending VTIS Automotive Cargo.

VTIS Automotive Cargo's were superb from start to finish.
wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone!
Thanks again for making our house move so easy and stress free!


Published May 7, 2020
Verified order

Efficient, helpful - they did what it says on the tin!
On booking, the office staff couldn't be more helpful, even when faced with several changes of move date. The van arrived on time. The guys were quick and efficient in loading and unloading, always checking with me where things should go, did I need anything prioritised, any extra help. They were courteous and friendly. Only one small problem with a broken chair, which the office dealt with promptly.
I have no trouble in recommending VTIS Automotive Cargo to anyone.


Even the fake website posting these reviews was registered months after the "happy clients" praised the fake escrow company...
