[DML] Delorean Scams Now on Craigslist!



I had an interesting discussion with a person from my local area tonight.
They are attempting to sell their Delorean on Craigslist.com and received a
check today from an "offshore" account and a completely differed Canadian
phone number.  The asking price for their Delorean was $23k.  The check was
for $34K.   

The buyer was not available via phone, saw NO photos of the car, and asked
no questions.

"Don't Cash it!  It's a scam!"  I urged them.   I politely filled them in on
how people scam via this method and just want the cash (Thanks Dave T. for
telling me about these types of crooks!)

They are contacting their bank and the local authorities first thing
tomorrow.

I guess even craigslist.com is no longer safe.    Can you imagine what might
have happened to that car?  Where it would have wound up had they shipped it
to a bogus offshore address?   :(    

Oh yeah.not to mention the $$$ they would have lost.
