Anonymous Car Ownership

Hiding Auto Ownership

Ever wonder if it is possible to own your car privately and anonymously? It is possible to own a car in the name of an Invisible New Mexico LLC (NM LLC) rather than your own, and it is really quite easy to do! In this guide, I'll show you how to do this, plus much more. After all, a car or truck is a large asset, and a big investment that's worth spending a little bit of time and money to take care of. A good vehicle is critical to the economic survival of millions of Americans. Are you one of them? You'll learn how to protect your auto- and yourself- from the interest of stalkers, disgruntled associates or lovers, the police, or any number of other people who might wish to waste your time, steal your property, or worse. Fortunately, there are some easy, inexpensive things you can do right now to increase your privacy, and thus your peace of mind.

Enhancing Auto Privacy:

* Purchase, register and sell your vehicle through your Invisible LLC, not under your name as an individual.
* Refrain from overt displays of status, political affiliation, or anything that could spark envy or controversy.
* Be aware of your surroundings; always park in safe, well lit areas off the street, especially at night (when possible).

The above is a list of the top three threats to your privacy, or "attack vectors", to use a term from the fields of information and operational security.

Purchase A Car Anonymously

We've gone over the basics of keeping you and your car safe from the most common threats to your property and person. But what if these simple methods fail? What if you want to buy or sell a vehicle in a private and anonymous way that doesn't create many, if any, records about who you are or what you own? Fortunately, there's a simple, low-cost way to make it happen. If you want to seize the day and take advantage of increased financial and personal freedom, read on! The process is so simple, easy, and powerful that I'll lay it all out for you just below:

Owning A Car With an Invisible LLC

1. Purchase a LLC- The first logical step is to obtain an Invisible New Mexico LLC. There are a number of places you can order a New Mexico LLC from. Many products will not be truly anonymous, however, as you may be required to provide the state with personal information. There are also some scams out there, and overly high prices. Out of all the options I've looked into on the 'net, one or two stand out. JJ Luna's site is one reputable source. The company formation is done in a truly anonymous way, and prices are quite reasonable. I've had one of their LLCs for a few years, and have found it to be a good investment. My personal favorite, however, is the package offered by KeepYourAssets.net. You get several years of resident agent fees waived for free, as well as an anonymous Tax ID# (EIN/TIN) and many valuable documents to make your LLC truly work for you. Luna's product is good, but you don't get any support to speak of.

2. Buy Your Automobile- Pay in cash, up front. This is easier to do than financing if you can afford it, and you can gain more anonymity by writing the check from an account opened in the name of your LLC. I recommend buying used, for several reasons, including reduced cost, lower regulatory requirements on all sides, and a lower visual profile.

3. Anonymous DMV Registration- This step is relatively easy to perform, especially if you allow the dealer or another private firm to file the DMV paperwork on your behalf. Again, fill out the approprate paperwork, putting your company name as the owner. You'll probably need to provide that Tax ID# (EIN) from the IRS in lieu of your own Social Security # (SSN). For an address, use a "ghost address", ie, one not where you live or work. You can work something out with a trusted friend/relative, or utilize the out of state or offshore ghost address services offered on JJ Luna's site. Be sure also to have your Articles of Organization for the LLC, which the dealer or private citizen may request as evidence that you're authorized to make purchases on behalf of the business.

4. Obtain Insurance- All US states with the exception of New Hampshire mandate auto insurance. The impositions and abuses of mommy government aside, having insurance is a very good idea, and I highly recommend it regardless of whether you have the option to get it or not. Many people find this step somewhat problematic, as it may result in higher premiums. However, JJ Luna writes in Chapter 16 of "How to Be Invisible" that you can work around this by sticking with a normal personal insurance plan and changing the name of the primary driver(s) from "Your Name" to "Your Name, dba (doing business as) Your Company, LLC". This should work, but every policy and insurance company is different. Double check to be sure. For maximum privacy, have all correspondence sent to a ghost address.

5. Sell Your Car- Selling your car is easy with a Invisible LLC. In fact, it's much easier- and cheaper!- than selling as a private individual. While you'll be effectively selling your car, legally you're selling ownership of the company, which in turn owns your car. This maintains privacy, and reduces paperwork and taxes drastically, even to zero. Your new buyer will get all of the privacy and asset protection you had, which can be a great selling point to make you extra money or sell faster! He or she will then only need to update the registration and modify insurance as you did in steps 2-3.

Wrap Up

In this article, you've learned about the most important threats to your person and property as far as owning a motor vehicle is concerned. The above strategies are tried and true, and are very simple and inexpensive to implement. Whether you're looking to buy or sell an existing car, or are in the process of looking for a new one, be sure to use common sense, make the best decisions you possibly can, and always use an Invisible New Mexico LLC. It'll save you time, money, and maybe even your life someday!
