Very interesting thread. For all the Monday morning quarterbacking I've just read, I would bet most of us before reading this story would have considered it a legit deal when we got picture proofs of the car as we requested, with visual proof of the vin we expected, and a call from what we believed was our chosen & legit PPI mechanic. I thought one could buy cars sight-unseen if enough due-diligence was done, but this proves its probably not possible any more.

Its sad to lose trust in people. When I sold my SC a few years back to someone out of state, I felt kind of honored that he trusted me enough to not even see the car. (Of course he called me and had me turn on the car and asked special questions, but if I was a crook I probably could have faked it).

I sympathize with the OP, & hopefully the culprit gets caught but I have a feeling there would be hundreds to take his place.
