Car Chronicles Part Three – A Cautionary Tale

December 9, 2012 - Author: newscoma - Comments are closed

A cautionary tale of trying to buy a car on Craigslist. I point to two emails I received this morning.

Exhibit #1

Hello,

Thanks for your interest in my 2001 Volkswagen New Beetle GLS. It has 19k and it’s in great condition, no accidents, mechanical problems or any issues, I attached more pics. It’s extremely well maintained and comes with clean title.I’m from Marietta,GA but the car was advertised in several locations for a better exposure because some changes came up with my job and I’m looking for a fast sale, that’s why I’m asking only $1900. Let me know if you are still interested.

Exhibit #2

Hello,

Thanks for your interest in my 2007 Mazda Mazda6i. It has 87k miles and it’s in great condition, no accidents, mechanical problems or any issues, I attached more pics. It’s extremely well maintained and comes with clean title. I’m from Dover, OH but the car was advertised in several locations for a better exposure because some changes came up with my job and I’m looking for a fast sale, that’s why I’m asking only $2400. Let me know if you are still interested.

Why yes campers, it came from the same email address. Daniel lives in Dover and in Marietta and is listing cars online in Nashville. Granted, I knew these two deals were to good to be true but I inquired anyway as a person on a limited budget desperate for a car does.

I wonder if Daniel is also a Nigerian prince.

I can’t help but laugh although it is annoying. Learn from my example, kids because I do these things so you don’t have to.
