As faithful readers know, CarHistory.us.org is always on top of news about car scams. And if you’ve spent any time on the Internet whatsoever, you know that Craigslist tops the list of places where scams of all types happen. But CarHistory.us.org was heartened to learn recently of a woman who has helped someone who was recently the victim of yet another Craigslist used car scam.
As reported by a local Fox affiliate, a Kansas City, MO woman was sold a used car via Craigslist – and it turns out the car was stolen. (That’s why we’re always going on and on about using CarHistory.us.org for any used car purchase!)
This woman, named Jessica, bought the car and was shortly detained by the police after a harrowing experience involving police with their guns drawn! This single mom of two with no former record had never experienced anything like this in her life.
Another woman named Bianca saw Jessica’s story on the news, and used her tax refund money to give her the entire amount she paid for the car – $1,200. Now, that might not seem like a tremendous amount of money. But for someone for whom that can mean the difference between feeding her kids and starving, it meant the world to Jessica.
