What to do about a rolled back odometer

Date posted: November 25, 2013

Odometer fraud is a major problem for consumers and happens in every state. So, what do you do if you’re a victim of this scam?

Unfortunately, many people who unknowingly buy a rolled-back car don’t know who they should report it to or contact an agency that’s unable to help them. So who do you call? Local police? State Attorney General’s office? The reality is that the agency designated to handle and investigate odometer rollback cases differs from state to state.

If you’ve bought a car with an odometer rollback, here’s a link to the agency in your state to contact for help:
