Mandan police warn public of online discounted vehicle scam

MANDAN, N.D. - The Mandan Police Department wants you to beware of a scam involving discounted vehicles for sale online.

Investigators say a company with a Mandan address called "Dakota Prairie Used and Seized" is listing prices for vehicles well below actual value online.

They say the business appears to be running out of the Bahamas.

It's not to be confused with the legitimate business called "Dakota Prairie Auto, Truck and Trailer."

Police say they don't know of any local victims of the scam.
