      I sell RVs and have dealt with many scams like this. Just as bad are the customers who try to underhandedly use scam Craigslist ads, they know are scam ads, with a year old motorhome for 50% retail value in order to negotiate an unrealistic sales price. Never met a salesman who fell for it, and while it is annoying to sink time into a deadbeat, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy playing games with unrealistic people.

      He had the VIN. That's all you need to say when you ask for it.
      It bothers me whenever someone says "VIN number".

      I got one for you, I used to work for a warehouse distributor of high performance , high end vehicle parts, i worked graveyard shift all by myself, this young guy calls me up one night, drunk, all parts for a 911, his total close to 150,000, then tells me his buddy has same vehicle, and wants the same, charge it to this credit card number and name, the last name was the same as our owners last name, everything was to be fed-ex, next day, and or same day, I got off the phone with him, called our owner, at 230am, a servant answered, I demanded he be woke up, the owner told me, if he didn't think what I had to say was important, I was going to be shitcanned, so I explained what was going on, the cc was tied to his account, he said I was correct to call him, and the order was a GO, he then called ware house managers, to go to work early, to ship his son;s parts, asap, his son had a auto show, and needed the stuff.....12.50 hour fucking job

      Thanks for posting such a great video. I was wondering, as a guy looking to buy an rx-7 fd in the next coming months would you recommend that I hire someone to find this specific vehicle for me or should I attempt to look for it myself? Obviously, my main concern is getting scammed and I know that you probably specialize on selling high end sports cars, but any input from your part is greatly appreciated.

      I'm an actual buyer and recently had to convince the SELLER I wasn't a scammer and deal with them from 6000km away and a 5 hour time difference. The only thing that helped was I had an agent look at the car for me and hand deliver my cheque! It works both ways out there.

      Wtf happened to an F50?! Proves a Ferrari doesn't belong in Kentucky. Ever. Haha 😂 😂 😂
      Edit: who can buy a car with check , I'm surprised that even works its 2019 this seems too easy especially to get as far as actually getting a deal done, I couldn't write a check for an f-150 and drive away how would that work on these high end cars?

      The black Ferrari fake lawyer guy deserves respect though. It is bad to fraud people, but he played good, and after the bad check, rolling the ball on ordering another Ferrari, to the justice office, this was a bold move, as it was dumb too.
