This was a very difficult project I done in January 2016, involved about 20 hours of coding in VB.NET to make an application sending javascript requests to Carwale website.


In April 2019 been contacted by a strange person claiming to have database of car buyers from all new car dealerships across India, 1.5 million records. He was speaking very bad english mixed with hindi and we didn’t understood each other, when I asked for a SAMPLE with few rows to see what details he have about each buyer, he said “bulk orders only” and asked me to do bank transfer. How I can pay without knowing what I get?

I have his phone and email, he is living in Mumbai. I am not from India so I cannot meet him. Is there anyone from Mumbai who can help me and meet him in person, check database before paying then share database with me (I can pay you half of the price of database) then I will sell it to other people interested?


This was funny! Someone bought a car database from CarQueryAPI and ask me for updates, then realized what crappy database he bought and choose to buy from me another, better quality database.
