(2) Mechanic came with her,so dealer believed they were together,thinking since mechanic is not going with her she won't go anywhere. Not knowing she was a stranger to mechanic.

Let me share a similar experience that happened to me in 2018. One of my Marketer took my ES 350 to show a Client. Client came along with 3 people (A hefty Army orderly, a mechanic and a driver). They met in front of a House in Ago-Palace. Marketer and the Mechanic first test drove the Car within the street, vehicle checked out, no complain. oga told the driver to test drive with marketer since he will be the one to drive his wife. After 2 successful test drive, oga requested for account number, text the account number to his supposed wife to credit us. As the whole transaction was going on they all believed the man live right in front of the house they all met. This crook was soo full of confidence.
While waiting for alert, oga said he will like to test drive the Car by himself. Marketer didn't bother following him thinking it's just within the street, dats how oga drove out of the street grin leaving behind the Marketer, mechanic, army orderly and driver. After 20mins the crook was no where to be found grin grin. Alarm was raised. The 3 of them were locked up in Police Station.
It turned out that his supposed driver was just an Uber driver who got tired of his hire purchase job and want to drive oga's wife grin The Army orderly came to Lagos for a Course in Ojo barracks but decided to make extra cash for himself by following he crook for days. The mechanic was just picked from a mechanic shop within the area.
The Case was reported and the Chasis number of the Stolen Car was logged. It was by the Grace of GOD I found the Car exactly 1 week after it was stolen. On my Birthday to be precise. How the Car was seen is a story for another day.

Very good question.
(1)There is a saying,you will be addressed or treated the way you dress or appear. This woman looks like money,smells like money with gold and glittering all over,reason she was given the respect of test driving alone.

(2) Mechanic came with her,so dealer believed they were together,thinking since mechanic is not going with her she won't go anywhere. Not knowing she was a stranger to mechanic.

(3) How do you track a tokunbo car? Not registered. She even went away without custom duty. Even stolen registered cars aren't easy to track,talk more of a tokunbo car.

Note!! Kubwa express,as soon as you enter that smooth road,its either u face kaduna,lokoja or make a u turn and face nasarawa.

Baba that shiiit taught me something that day.
After,there was this couple that came to inspect my lexus Es350,we were all in the car when they test drove the car,next he asked his wife or girlfriend do you like the car? She said yes!! He then asked if I could come down from the car and excuse them for a minute cos he needs to discuss with her if they should buy the car or not lol. Mind you AC was on,so it was more like the excuse of they don't want to stay in the sun.
Guess what? I just push the stop button of the car,collected the key from the guy and stepped out. They both looked at me funny,but man I care less. Only God knows,if I had left them with the keys all in the name of I want to sellcar grin. Na same kubwa express o,you need see that road,SMOOTH LIKE BUTTER,na bye bye be that.


Have you heard about fake alert on Fridays? Why Fridays ?Lol.
There are different levels to this nonsense.

GAZZUZZ:




let me break it down for you since you are shifting to respect matter


2014 Toyota Camry.

Sold for ₦3,250,000

Let's assume you paid the right custom duty (still compromised)

Handling (USA) ₦235,000

Clearing ₦1,500,000

Shipping ₦470,000 (average )

Price of the car ₦X (in dollars )


Total ₦2,205,000 (excluding price of car)

These assumptions are minimum averages.

With your sale price at ₦3,250,000 car price is about ₦1,045,000 (2,200 dollars) it's either a badly salvaged car which will still need repairs (pushing the sale price further) or you picked it for free on the streets of the abroad for you to have made a profit.

I have made this journey more than once in 2019 and 2020 and I can tell you you ran at a big loss.







I actually overestimated your knowledge of cars

You actually underestimated, if you have a 2014 Camry at less than 4m then something is terribly wrong with that car or you just decided to sell at a loss for whatever reason. It's just as simple as that.

Someone saw my Camry and said it's 300k more expensive than the one he has seen. Asked him for vin, ride was with terrible accident and was bought at almost a million cheaper.

You get what you paid for.

If you know anything about the prices of automobiles, you will know that around this time last year, cars were like 25/30% cheaper than what's obtainable now. Sharp 2013 Camry sport sold GAINFULLY at the rate of 3.250 same day it was cleared from the port. No history of flood or accident.

Cars on auction might be a bit cheaper during that period but there are some constants, share the VIN of the car
