There was a time when being able to tell if a car for sale was scam or not was actually difficult. The price would be just right. The parts all matched. It had no history. Everything looked good. Nowadays however, scams are so easy to spot it is actually sad. This is a message to scammers everywhere encouraging them to be more convincing!

I was reading through Craigslist as I do daily, still hunting for the perfect first car. A few listings down, I came across a Amazing '09 Acura sedan Acura sedan nice bucjftumh - $4900 (sarasota-bradenton). I don't know what made a red flag pop up first. Was it the strange random letters at the end of the title? The fact that a 2009 Acura was for sale for less than $5000? Or, when I clicked the ad, this is what it said:

Terribly thoroughly clean and easy to wear heated up natural leather seats.

NOTE: THERE WAS A LOT MORE TO THIS ARTICLE. KINJA WAS KIND ENOUGH TO ERASE IT HOWEVER AND LEAVE THE INTRODUCTION. THAT IS WHY IT SEEMS CUT OFF LIKE THAT. SORRY ABOUT THIS.
