Sorry had to bring this up. It is funny that things seem be so diffrent now when it comes to how people act! I have had my car up for sale the last couple of weeks and have had some people interested in the car but also have some scammers that really try my patience. One gentelman even claimed he is was in the Marines and said he was looking for a car for his son. He did not have a checkikng account. That was a red flag right there!

My Son is in the Marines and has no issue with his funds but what gets me the most is to use our Miitary to scam people.

FYI I know lot of folks here have giving me some great advice. Here is mine.. Never deal with anyone who will not see the car themselves. Two no need your Paypal email address. If you ever have that is is a SCAM. No moneygram or Western Union or asking for your account information. If Cashier check place hold on any title transfer until it is cleared. If someone is really interested in your car they will have no problem with this.

Anyway that is my vent for the week thanks for everyone hearing me out!!
Frank

You really get to meet all kinds when you're selling a vehicle, and even when you're the buyer.

I know how you feel! I've seen it happen to me also with my selling of Avon. I hate a scammer.

They have always been out there. The only difference is now we have mass communication with the internet. I bought two Corvettes over the internet sight unseen. But you just never know.

I had a scammer "text" my cell phone telling me he wanted to buy my Van I had on craigslist wanted my information to send a "Bank check." I told him to call me...he continued to text me never really asking much about the VAN but more about how he wanted to do the transaction. I knew right away it was a scam when he never called me but continued to text only.

I tried to sell my car in 2006 for $5500 and people were trying to talk me down. Can you believe that? Even with a cracked block I thought it would've been worth every penny of the $5500. Scammers SUCK!
