IS350 owner scammed...

from Clublexus.com
------------------
"So I sold my 06 IS350 like two weeks ago for 31K. The buyer came from Chicago to purchase my car and drive it back. He ask me to write on the title I am giving it to him as a gift so he doesnt have to pay taxes in Illinois. I told him I couldnt do that. He mentioned Illinois tax is 6%. So he asked can I write the Bill of Sale at 24K. I told him I could do that. So when he came to Boston, he gaved me a Bank of America Certified check for 24K. And gave me a Pentagon Federal Credit Union Loan check for 7K. So I gave him the car signed the title to him, and a Bill of Sale for 24K bc he wanted to save on taxes. Now I get a notice from my bank that the PFCU loan check he gave me it bounced, a stop payment was issued on it. This guy is 900 miles away and has my car, my title, and I dont have the rest of my money. I call the guy and there is no answer on his phone. I emailed him also, still no response. What can I do ? Can I take him to small claims court ? Please help me. Thanks"

I feel for the guy, but what he did was simply dumb.

That is just terrible. I think I would have simply told the guy that I don't want to sell the car to him after he asked me to defraud the state...lame

Maybe the guy is just explaining his story on a BMW forum to get more opinions. He could have felt the need to change the car to a BMW so people actually cared and it didn't just turn into a flame fest.

On his E46fanatics post it says his rides are a '04 330CI Vert, IS350' This is definitely a weird story.

Some of you don't seem to realize E90Ice was merely copy/pasting the story, not speaking in first person about himself.

Do you have any contract signed by the buyer elsewhere stating the sale price of 30k. If not, I think your screwed...

Nevermind, just realized it's not you.... That person is screwed...

I just sold a vehicle via private party sale...i made sure he brought cash and I made it clear to him that if he brings a check I will not hand over anything to him until it clears. I'm pretty sure that guy didn't call the number on the check to verify it.

It seems fake as he was called out on e46 by me. Then proceeded to go to Lexus board and change it to... BMW 330ci, then back to Lexus (when they questioned) .. Then suddenly posted in his rides: Lexus IS (was added)

Weirddddddd
