Important Collision Repair Fraud Alert for Melrose Park Residents

June 28, 2020


Collision Repair Fraud Alert

This is not a legitimate service – please don’t be a victim!
These people are not employees of the dealership!
Anyone that can provide information, photographs of vehicle,
license or perpetrators 
would help prosecute these individuals.

A fraudulent auto repair scam has been reported to us by several people along the North Avenue corridor. The perpetrators are not current, nor former employees of the dealership where they claim they are employed.

The perpetrators are obtaining the information from the rear of your vehicle – either by license plate brackets or dealership stickers – they claim to deliver repair services at a fraction of the cost of conventional collision repairs.

Under no circumstances allow them into your vehicle.

Do not allow them to persuade you to drive them to an ATM machine or persuade you to purchase gift cards for the cost. Leave the area and contact the Police Department immediately.

This is not a legitimate service – please don’t be a victim!
