MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Cleveland, Ohio resident who thought she was buying a car from a Mid-South auto dealership is likely one of many victims of a website that stole the identity of a Memphis business.
"More than my heart sank. I broke into tears," victim Amanda Hanson said. "I wish I could go back in time and just stop myself."
Through Americautosales.com, Hanson put down $2,200 on a used Chevy that she thought she was buying from America Auto Sales in Memphis. But the website was a fraud, stealing money that customers paid in good faith as a down payment.
