Here are some people you can call and questions to ask if you are buying a used car from an individual.

- Ask how many cars they've sold recently. If it's more than 4, ask to see their dealer license.
- Ask for the title on scene.
- Ask if they have their financing license. They cannot finance on their own, and without going through a bank, without one.

If you have suspicions, here are some numbers to call for help:

South Plains Auto Theft Task Force - 806-775-1569
Office of Consumer Credit Commissioner -
512.936.7600 - they should be able to tell you if the person has their license to finance your car without a bank.
Texas Department of Motor Vehicles -
1-888-DMVGOTX (368-4689)
