Keep yourself safe: sell your used car to Big Bucks Auto

Big Bucks Auto heard startling and disturbing news recently about a man who tried to privately sell his used car, and ended up almost selling his life.

Why you shouldn’t sell your used car to just anyone.

In late January, 2011, a man tried to sell his used car, a BMW, without using an auto appraisal or car buying service like Big Bucks Auto. After the “buyer” of the BMW signed a fake name on the bill of sale, he forcefully captured the seller, brutalized him, tied up his hands and feet and threw him into the trunk. With the seller unconscious in the trunk of his own BMW, the buyer started driving away from Manhattan toward an unknown destination, but likely what would have been the final resting place of his captive.

Thankfully to the slippery condition of the Manhattan roads, the BMW skidded on ice and rear-ended a livery cab on Tenth Avenue in Inwood. The buyer fled the scene of the accident, leaving the cops to discover the owner of the BMW all bruised and battered in the trunk. The victim was taken to the Harlem Hospital in serious condition.
