I have a vehicle listed on Craigslist for sale. I get a text Wednesday night from a guy who is very interested in the vehicle. He is from another state but says he is a truck driver who will be in my area Friday morning (today) and he will bring a friend to drive the vehicle and pay cash. Makes me an offer.
I'm immediately sceptical and i question his interest seeing there are lots of scams on Craigslist often involving out of state buyers, but this one is cash so it seems like there isn't really a way for him to get me.
I tell him i will meet him at my bank and that when they confirm the cash is legitimate and deposit into my bank i will sign over title to him. He says OK.
Fast forward to last night. He texts me to confirm our meeting. I told him i was feeling very sceptical so i wanted to make sure everyting was laid out in detail. I told him i would also be bringing someone along with me to give me a ride home after. We would wait inside the bank while he looked over the car. If he wanted to test drive the car he was welcome to but I would be taking a picture of his license (to make sure he has one and he would need to provide one to the notary anyways) and i would not be going anywhere with him. When he returned if he still wanted the car he would give the cash to the bank for them to verify it's authenticity and when it was deposited into my account i would sign the title over to him with the bank acting as notary. I then even game him directions to the BMV so he could complete the transaction on his end.
He texts back that i am freaking him out and he is no longer interested in the vehicle and good luck selling it.
So what was his scam? Was he going to get me int he car and harvest my organs? Counterfeit money?
