Spring is traditionally a busy shopping season for those looking for a new car, but it's also open season on consumers for scammers looking to take unsuspecting victims for a ride, warns a consumer watchdog.

The National Consumers League, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit watchdog, says its Fraud Center has reported an increase in complaints about used car scams, and cautions consumers not to fall victim to fraudsters during the upcoming peak car-buying season.
