Weekly Roundup: Car Scam Edition

We have gotten a few calls since we put my car up for sale. The most interesting was one that kept text messaging us asking questions that were already answered in the ad. The final question was if we would accept $8,000 more than the asking price and send them a check for the difference. Seriously?

My husband researched it and found that it is a typical scam the con artists try to pull on people selling a car. They never take possession of the car and you never get the money they offer, but they get away with your money.
