However, is is highly unlikely that he finds his car now. Aggregator websites like Google, Just Dual and the one that Sharma used – Movemycar do not take any responsibility of the service provided by the listings on their websites. It is customers choice to take such risks. This is why it is always advised to go with the reputed service providers.

H0w to avoid such scams?

With the increasing number of thefts, it is always a good idea to install a secondary anti-theft device in your vehicle. Even modern vehicles equipped with immobilizers can be stolen using sophisticated devices. Steering locks, gear locks, wheel locks, and GPS trackers are highly beneficial in such situations. These devices offer various features, such as alerting the owner about unauthorized ignition.

Some of these devices can even remotely disable the engine, providing an additional layer of security. Owners can also set up a GPS fence, which automatically shuts off the engine if the vehicle crosses a specific point. These devices are available for all types of vehicles, and users usually need to pay a nominal subscription fee to keep the GPS system and Internet connectivity active in the device.

It is also very important to read online reviews and talk to your friends and family to know more about a particular brand or service. Such scammers are almost everywhere and in this age of Internet, one needs to be extremely careful before choosing a service.
