Retirees Beware of Auto Sales from the “Exchange”
A military retiree publication is warning retirees of misleading
advertisements in Auto Trader magazine and major
metropolitan newspapers offering automobile sales through a company
calling itself “Exchange Inc.” Military exchanges do not
have the authority to sell vehicles in the continental
Military Exchange facilities are located solely on military installations. While military exchanges have mail order and Internet offerings, they do not advertise in civilian outlets such as metropolitan newspapers or automobile sales magazines. All advertisements for legitimate Exchange offerings are published in outlets whose audiences are mostly comprised of military members.
