When you have cash in hand and you can checked it for counterfeit bills.

CarGurus needs to become a more trusted site and verify buyers better! We are asked for our vin # car titles, license etc etc. While any scam artist can and has tried to get my personal info in hopes of scamming me. Why is there no charter or credit checks . Aside from that you really need a SELLER BEWARE SITE AS THIS GUY tried to scam me Michael Sharp .from Ohio probably fake ID but maybe I’ll save some other seller from this !

Your Answer:

Own this car?
