Online Purchasing of Motor vehicles
The Embassy of Japan has received many reports of problems related to importing used cars to Tanzania, from Japan or through companies claiming to be situated in Japan.
In certain cases online advertisements for the sale of used cars may be fraudulent.
Prospective buyers are advised to exercise caution when entering into online purchase transactions, which hold certain risks, including limitations to take legal action as a result of insufficient evidence to constitute a fraud case.
The Embassy of Japan cautions all prospective buyers that the Embassy, as a third party, is not in a position to assist, investigate or intervene in commercial disputes.
