Carfax Adds FEMA Advisory To Help Reduce Flood Damage Fraud


car in flood

November 16, 2012: To help consumers and dealers avoid potential fraud, Carfax is identifying specific cars that were last registered or located in FEMA-declared major disaster areas from Hurricane Sandy. A public service announcement included with Carfax Vehicle History Reports alerts buyers about a car's last-known location and reminds them to check for flood damage during a pre-purchase inspection. Adding this advisory may help reduce the chance of damaged vehicles being resold to unsuspecting consumers during the recovery period.

As a public service, Carfax offers a free check for flood damage at CarFax Flood . Carfax is working with law enforcement, state agencies and private companies to make sure vehicles flooded and damaged by Sandy are properly branded and reported.
