Can you imagine buying a brand new Mercedes, in show room condition, for only $300? It happened to one gentleman. This is a true story.
Brand new Mercedes for $300 – Impossible?
The gentleman needed a new car for transportation. He went to Craigslist, and found an ad listing a brand new Mercedes, in show room condition, with 1,200 miles, for $300. Even though the man was aware of scammers on Craigslist, he thought it would be a good idea to check this out.
The contact was a nice lady who told him, “What you read is exactly what it is. Come over and look at it. I’ll hold it for you.”
The man went to see the lady. Sure enough, the Mercedes was exactly like it was listed in the ad. He gave her the $300, got a bill of sale and drove away.
Before he left the lady, he asked her, “Just out of curiosity, how can you sell me a brand new Mercedes for only $300?”
The lady said, “That car belonged to my husband. He had two cars. He left me a week ago, and drove off with his new Cadillac and his secretary. Before I placed the ad, he sent me an email, telling me to sell the Mercedes and send him the money.”
