Trying to sell my wife’s car on Craigslist as we have replaced it with a newer one - ad honestly stated mileage , condition , services done etc. I posted the price as x dollars OBO. Only a few inquiries - three of which asked about the cars condition and mileage - guess they couldn’t read . One asked if I was the original owner and if the price was firm - reasonable question. I told him we were the second owners and had the car for ten years. I also told him I would listen to reasonable offers when he came to see the car. A few days passed when I got an email from him saying he was too busy at work but wanted the car and would pay the asking price plus 50 bucks to hold the car for him . He would overnight the check to me via UPS and send me a tracking number. After check cleared he would make arrangements to collect the car. He needed my address to send the check to. I responded with the address but instructed him to phone me before sending check . I received a few more communications from him every other day or so - each one followed by my response asking him to phone me. Never got a call. The last said the check was on the way and would include an extra $4k to give the freight people when they came to pickup the car as he wanted them to pick up other “items” in the area. Wanted me to deposit the money in my account and pay the shipper myself- yeah, right. The letter came today and I refused delivery - return address said “ Farm & Ranch Supply “ in Montana. Who the hell buys a 14 year old $ 4K car with 150k miles on the coast of NJ and pays another 4 k to ship it ? A scammer , that’s who. I’m sure the next communication was going to ask me to refund the $4k shipping as something changed with the shipping, all in hopes that I would be stupid enough to do it before seeing if the check cleared - which I am sure it never would because it would be found to bounce higher than a Super Ball .
