Can a Mod remove this post??

I own this car. It is NOT for sale.

This numbnuts took the ad that the previous owner had posted on a different site and offered it "For Sale" as if he owned it, for more money. In the meantime, he was calling the previous owner as if he was interested and asking for more pics. He would then send these pics to the interested parties as if he possessed the car. While he was doing this, the previous owner had NO IDEA that someone else was trying to sell his car.

This "ad" from this douchebag needs to get removed. He never owned this car. I own it. It isn't for sale.

Remove and ban.

Oh yeah! Got a front row seat for this one....

I am pretty sure he isn't coming back. My guess is that this clown finds cars he thinks he can sell for profit and advertises them. Then he tries to act as a "broker" and pair the two up. No overhead for him. And most people won't press charges.

Doubt he will be back. Probably on some Ford Probe message board doing the same thing as we speak....

Jesus, sorry to hear man.

I don't think there is any reason to feel sorry for me or anyone. No one lost anything in this. He is just a guy who is trying to sell a car that is being sold by someone else in hopes that he "sells" it first at a higher price. When he finds a buyer at the higher price, he then tries to pair the two parties together as if he is a broker and takes the difference in selling price. I don't think he is taking money for the car without delivery of the car.

It is just a shady thing to do (acting as if he has the car) since the real seller in this case didn't know this guy was also selling his car.
