BBB warns of vehicle transport scam

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The Better Business Bureau is alerting people across the CSRA about a fake transporting business that has cost some folks thousands of dollars.

Scammers are operating under the name Elk Horn Express Transport. The company was operating out of Paul, Idaho.

Consumers told the BBB they registered on the company's website to purchase and/or transport vehicles they found online. Once they registered, they were required to wire payments for the vehicle without having the opportunity for an inspection. Scammers took more than $30,000 from victims. The company is no longer in business.

To report a scam, use the BBB Scam Tracker.
