    Re: cars.com scam

    You can avoid a lot of issues by :
    1: - State in your post that the buyer is responsible to pick up the car in person, or arrange transportation with a third party. State that you will not do it regardless of circumstances.
    2: - State in your post that all checks will be held a minumum of 2 weeks until they clear the bank - 4 weeks for international checks.
    3: - State that all payments for "more than" or "less than" the agreed upon price will be automatically rejected.

    If someone asks, I will post the reply to them along with their layest reply this morning!!!
