Airport/High-end Vehicle Scam Reported

Nov 30th, 2012 | By | Category: Spotlight

Tow Times has been notified by an Iowa towing company that they are being contacted by a person or persons attempting to initiate a scam involving the towing and storage of high-end vehicles.

The towing company has received calls, emails and a fax inquiring about towing vehicles from an airport storage facility and storing the vehicles at the towing company’s location. The scammer then requests (often in broken English) the towing company’s account information to pay for airport storage/towing fees.

The scam has surfaced across the country for many years and has been reported numerous times in Tow Times magazine.

Use caution when contacted regarding this airport/high-end vehicle scenario and do not give out account information if it seems suspicious.
