Sgt. Jennifer S. Ross with the Decatur Police Department shares the following:

On 4-16-14, Decatur Police were made aware of what appears to be a fraudulent auto dealer website.  The website http://dealerplatform.com/autocenter claims their auto center to be physically located at 700 Commerce Drive, Decatur, GA 30030. That address does not exist. The site offers an on-line finance application and once approved you are to travel to the auto center to complete the purchase of a vehicle.

It is possible the purpose behind the site is to obtain the personal information required to complete the on-line finance application which puts you at risk for becoming the victim of identity fraud. Please use caution when completing online applications and confirm the physical location of the business. Best practice is to complete finance paperwork upon visiting the seller.  For more information on fraud prevention and scam alerts, please visit the Federal Trade Commission website.
