    Any feedback would be great. This is the VIN for the car in case anyone can check anything I can't: WBSNB93508CX08604

    The guy selling the car doesn't, by chance, live in Montana, or something? Maybe joining the army and he has to sell his car fast? just curious. I talked to one guy saying he had an audi for sale, had an audi VIN for that model, selling for cheap, and responded to emails. I didn't fall for this scam, I was just seeing why he had such a great deal.

    this is funny becz, i just received an email from a lady who listed a C CLASS 300 MERCEDES 2008 for only $12700, on craiglist NJ, and ..... for more fun here is the email:

    """""We will use only Google Checkout to close the transaction.They will protect you in the deal.The car is now in Google Checkout's custody at their shipping company sealed with all the papers(title signed by me, ownership, insurance papers etc) in Helena, MT.
    The delivery process has been paid by me and I want to finish this deal through Google Checkout . This way we can both be protected and insured.The payment will be handled by Google Checkout.You will receive the car in max 2-6 days depending on your location, and you will have the chance to inspect it for 5 days. In the inspection period you can test the car or go with it at your local mechanic for inspection .The car will be delivered directly to your requested address as soon as Google Checkout will have the payment confirmation from you. In case you won`t be satisfied, you can cancel the payment and ship the car back on my expense.
    If you are interested in this type of transaction I will need your full name , full shipping address and your phone# so I can notify Google Checkout that you are selected as my buyer and they will contact you.If not, your loss.

    Thanks ,
    Jennifer Benson"""""""""""

    you know the easy way to do it is call your insurance company and tell them the location of the car and they'll send a rep to look at it, i think the drive it as well.

    I have one of my cars listed for sale and the first question asked was my VIN. I said you can come and write it down yourself to which he did not want to do......just wanted to use it for the next scam of his.
    Don't argue with idiots...they will just bring you down to their level then beat you with experience!
