English term or phrase:Curbstoning
подскажите, пожалуйста, как это будет по-русски. Контекст: Curbstoning - A curbstoner is a person who purchases vehicles at volumes that require a dealer license and then poses as a private seller to sell to unsuspecting buyers for a large profit. Curbstoning is illegal in most States.
Explanation: я попытался отразить незаконность, ведь при наличии лицензии и уплате налогов бизнес был бы вполне законным...

just a note about legal / illegal
Explanation: Please note they curbstoners apparently have a business license - so they buy a number of cars benefiting from a wholesale discount, BUT then they pose as owners to sell car by car and profit from it.
Very likely that they can be liable only for "misrepresentation" (like they are not who they claim they are)
