My Dance With A Car Sales Scammer... by Franzinni: 6:06pm On May 02, 2018
So I am looking to buy a small car within the budget of 600k-1m and like every other lazy youth, I decides to browse through olx to see if my chances of getting a good score will be great...

I have specific brand names ( my throat is long I know)

Beemer (bmw)
Benz
Volvo
And must be 2002 and above

So I saw this ad of a volvo c70.... 2007 for 650k I was like damn! Checked YouTube and found out it is a convertible too I became fully interested.

Contacted the gentle man and as nah market,I started pricing I told him I'll pay 500k and he said 550k last since I'll be coming from abuja and the “car" is in Port Harcourt nah so I Maga o... I was already driving the car as I dey see am for my phone live....

But the I started hearing the voice of the Street and as a sharp guy I decided to do some investigation... Let me first show you the picture of the car as advertised

Ok so I now called a friend who lives in Port Harcourt to help me do a visual confirmation... But i could sense the fear in his answers as he buttresses my reason for caution... He goes like... Scam plenty for here o... And I be like... I know right.

Then I went full paranoid with a little bit of OCD on the matter and downloaded a image reverse search app from Google play store... But that didn't find the pictures on Google... So I felt this might be legit but then I typed. The guys name attached to his number into Google to see if any other person done fall Maga... But that didn't yield fruit and so I was like in days I am gonna be cruising Abujas nights in a convertible like daaayuuum!

But then the jack Bauer in me was like holup holup..
I decided to kuku go full black hat hacker on the matter so I uses my very expensive photo app that comes with my phone to zoom into that number on the windshield... It was not too clear but my eyes have been updated to the latest software.. Thanks to garri...I go the number 27558218x. Omo straight I summoned my Google... it turned out this anuofia downloaded a bunch of pics to use and scam people let me show you what Google vomited for me

Even though the guy is a scam,if the car isn't sold from that site,how is it suppose to be in Nigeria. Don't you know cars on Copart are sold first abroad before shipped to Nigeria, if you search such car on the site it will show it has been sold. So you are still ignorant of car business and haven't done anything special.

Sorry to say this op.. But almost goofed big time.. What you should have done is to enquire from Google how much that car is sold as toks..rhen Compare it to the change the guy wants to sell... U will not even see Nigerian used for that price... U get luck
