• Internet Vehicle Sales Working Group

  • The Internet Vehicle Sales Working Group is tasked with developing best practices for the regulation of internet vehicle sales, in an effort to provide recommendations and education to member jurisdictions for deterring and stopping fraud and deceptive practices. Internet sales offer the ability for licensed motor vehicle dealers to expand their businesses and save money previously spent on advertising.  Although it may ease the process and expand the search locations for potential buyers and sellers, the internet can also be a conduit for fraudulent activity. The lack of a standard results in each jurisdiction either having a different set of laws and rules for regulating internet vehicle sales; or no authority for regulation.
