Autotrader.ca is FULL of those. No matter what you search for you'll find at least a couple of them, it seems. The pics are always blurry and it always says "pre-owned" in the ad. I can't believe that the site administrators haven't caught this crap yet.

and....

you'd have to have balls of steel to try to pull that scam off.

How can people be so gullable...
Why not ask for the ownership to the car or even the history papers ? ?
Those people deserve what they got...

She was so blinded by the price; she was nearly willing to PayPal the scam artist her hard earned cash.

Unbelievable.

Needless to say, she knows as much about cars as my goldfish does.
Can your goldfish drive stick?
