Illegal Sales of Vehicle Registrations on Social Media

Also new tonight - - a warning concerning social media - - and car registrations.

Channel 5's trason bragg learned... about an "enticing" offer making the rounds online - - that might land you in big trouble.

You've heard it before if a deal seems too good to be true, it might just be.

Searching for world news and keeping in contact with friends.

Sissy cox says that's what she loves most about facebook.

She tells us every so often she even looks for a good deal on the market place.

Last week she found this.... an ad for vehicle registration stickers.

"it makes me mad because i pay my dues to the state and i believe everyone else should."

Cox says she found several similar ads.

Some have since been removed.

We called one of the lone survivors.

That number was disconnected so we contacted the seller through the market place.

She denied selling stickers.

So we asked why her ad says the opposite.

She gave no response.

"no that is not legal.

The only place that you can purchase a registration sticker is in a county office or a deputy of a county."

That response is from jeremiah kuntz.

He's the director of the vehicle titles and registration division at the texas department of motor vehicles.

He tells us an illegal sale of a vehicle registration sticker is a third degree felony.

He explains if you purchase the sticker you're in trouble too.

"it's a class c misdemeanor for someone to process them and use it."

Kuntz tells us that punishment becomes a class b misdemeanor for repeat offenders.

He adds the investigations are handled by local law enforcement.

Cox says she sticks to getting her registration stickers the legal way.

Kuntz says if you have knowledge of an illegal sale of a vehicle registration sticker you can either report it to local law enforcement or by filling a complaint on the dmv's website.

We'll have the link to their site on our website in the studio, trason bragg, channel 5 news at 10.
