The OP never said how he got mixed up with this. Never said whether the car in those pics was supposed to be the scam car. This not really a car. It's just some parts. Things don't really add up here.
Think maybe someone has been telling tales.
Tellin' some tales outta school IMHO indeed.

Re: Beware

n269chvy,

Bummer that your hopes for a good project turned sour. Some members have made suggestions that I would pursue: talk with your bank, contact the local police in CA, and find an investigating attorney in CA. Those contacts will help you get on the right path forward. If you are still talking with "Jose", then get enough contact info for the police and your attorney to find him. Sounds like Jose is stringing you along with the false promise to pay you back. My guess from what you said is that you won't get the money back without legal action, and may not even with that. Maybe you'll get some satisfaction from delivering the consequences to Jose - and I don't mean through violence.

You asked for help. Sorry that some of the "Team" weren't supportive.

I'm guessing you don't acquire that many aliases by living a productive life.

I think your right Steve, in this case it was pretty easy to connect some dots, such as the individual name w Gonzales, as well as some additional info. All could be helpful in a legitimate claim, if this is the case. I would recommend the OP contact Law enforcement in his state to begin a course of action. This case could involve money transfer across state lines, which would be of interest to The Feds. (FBI).


The bottom line here is simple weather this story is true or not: Any legitimate seller is going to have information that can be verified and corroborated by competent people, on short notice. On occasion, the buyer may be motivated by an unusually low price, special condition or limited time offer, these are all red flags and should be treated accordingly.


We have a term when it comes to consumer protection claims: "Willing Victim". Generally motivated by money to overlook obviouse protection items. Until there is a claim, then its all about the harm done.


I don't even know in this case if the claim, seller or buyer... are real.


Best of luck to the OP, this may be something you let a Pro handle in the future.
