There are many government and police auctions online, but you need to be careful. Many websites will advertise that they have inside information on government or police auctions.

If you do decide to enter an online police or government auction, you should check first with the police department or agency to be sure that the agency is affiliated with the auction.

Beware of scams that advertise such items as airplanes and cars for ludicrously low prices.
