In the past few months ago, we’ve posted an article about Exchange New Car Sales fraud. This entailed using your signature for purposes of: adding unwanted items to your vehicle, such as Ziebart by having an ENCS agent ship your vehicle to another location or having it applied to your vehicle at the factory in some cases.
The Word About Exchange New Car Sales is Out
This is a dirty, dirty tactic that Independent Sales Representatives and Managers use to victimize the good men and women serving in our American Armed Forces today. Fortunately for many, I have received a lot of emails thanking me about exposing this issue that saved a lot of people headache (and money). With the culprits being exposed, I hope it’s resolved in a timely manner as people have been victimized since before the leak and thereafter.
Suggestion to Stop the Fraud
One suggestion; though costly for Overseas Military Sales Corporation, to implement would be taking a digital fingerprint, digital CAC card signature and a formal signature on paper. This could eliminate this type of fraud immediately.
Leaks of ENCS Fraud Information
In the recent weeks, there has been information coming in about the Exchange New Car Sales area manager Joseph Learned that quite possibly found this trick out upon being hired and passing it down to his Marine Corps Base Camp Butler location manager Cory Wahsburn (ironically, one of his Facebook “Likes” is “Making Money”). Both of these managers; when Independent Sales Representatives, used this tactic on multiple occasions to swindle you out of your hard earned money and put a little extra commission in your pocket… as they went up the ladder, they taught it to their Independent Sales Representatives in order to pad their pockets even more, as managers are paid on the basis of how well the overall team does as well as other factors.
Don’t These Two Gentlemen Look Hirable?
Action Taken Against ENCS Managers
Subsequently, they have been fired from the parent company Overseas Military Sales Group (which oversees Exchange New Car Sales, Navy Autosource, Diplomatic Automobiles, along with many other companies that sell cars overseas) and from their managerial positions of MCB Butler Area Manager (Joseph Learned) and Marine Corps Base Camp Foster Location Manager (Cory Washburn) for unknown reasons at this time, though updates will be provided when they come in from outside sources.
