Instant VIN

I had a vehicle for sale on the local Craigslist website and was contacted via text message by a person posing as a potential buyer. I had a conversation with this person over several texts before they requested "a IVR report" on the vehicle. I asked what an IVR report was and the person replied with an explanation and a website for a vehicle report service called Instant VIN Reports. This service is similar to CarFax (I only use that for comparison, I am in no way associating CarFax with this scam). I checked out the website through a Google search, I did not click on the link provided. The site was legitimate and I paid $25 for a report on my car to be generated. As soon as I confirmed that I had run the report and tried to send it to the "buyer" all replies to my texts stopped.The report I received was accurate as to the history of my vehicle, I believe this scam was to simply get me to purchase this service.

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on, it is strongly advised to avoid Instant VIN in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Instant VIN. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones.
Instant VIN is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
