If it did happen it does not surprise me, he is lucky he did not get beat for the whole amount. The scam artists are good these days at making fake bank checks. If you are dealing with someone you do not know, deal in cash and only cash. I know it is a pain to deal with that much cash and worse yet, when you try and deposit it in the bank, they will ask all kinds of questions if it is over 10K.

As a side note to everyone, we all tried this in the past of buying a car and then claiming you paid less to save on taxes or registration fees, well most states do not care what you paid they will pull Kelly Blue Book and charge you taxes based on what it says.

On another note, you can get an 06 IS350 for 31k? Hmmm, I wonder if it has any options.

some asshole must be bored, but shit like this does happen.

i personally know somebody that got scammed when he was selling his e39. this involved only one check though. the check bounced at the bank and the car was supposedly on it's way to washington. the cops later found some leftovers of the car some where, so the car was basically chopped up and sold to others by the thief.

Its fake.. The guy was a MB forum member and got banned and keeps coming back and doing crap like this. If I recall right he drives a 1980's diesel mercedes. He has been banned from just about all forums.

On MB forum he made up a story about an SL..

ok, i'm selling a car. I told the guy who lives quite far from me to just get a cashier's check and give me the # by tonight. I will call the bank to verify the check. If it's ok, we do the transaction on Saturday. Is there a way this guy can rip me off?

I'm selling my supercharged E30 M3.

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.

thats going to be tough...if you wrote on the bill of sale for 24k....hmmmmm.....might be SOL.....consult legal advise and see what they say.
good luck man!!!

Bill of Sale states $24k and you received $24k. Don't lose more money asking an attorney that question....

Look on the bright side, you will never get screwed out of money again for the rest of your life....

Some guy made a similar story in generale90 chat. Seems sketchy. Either a nationwide scam is going on, or someone has alot of time on their hands...

No - interesting that he ask. Must be some kind og gay. There are only one way to deal with types like this: drive the 900 - beat him up like shit. Ruin the car and then set fire. Is his wife home - beat her op to. Return to the man. Beat him up some more. Kick his dog to peaces. Tell him you will get back soon. Drive back.
You now feel so much better.
