I came across this today. Too good to be true?

"2011 BMW 1M Coupe - $22,500"

I ran the vin and it does show up as a 1M...

No idea why but that dealer is clearly using other peoples pictures to advertise cars that they don't have on the lot & don't own. They only list around 50 cars on their website but have 120+ on car gurus. The 2007 GT3 for example is completely lifted from another dealer's old listing in new york.

Running a scam of some sort, either looking to steal deposits for vehicles they don't actually have or just trying to generate foot/phone traffic hoping to pull the "it just sold but we have this over here instead" bullshit.

I'd say scam like above or they fat fingered it and hit the 2 instead of the 5. Would a branded title justify that low price on a 1M?

its a scam. Just ran the vin, the car is located in idaho with its last owner who bought it a year ago. If this dealer actually had the car, carfax would show it.

I got a reply back

danielhughes@tutanota.com
7:56 AM (1 hour ago)

to me
It is still for sale and I'm willing to sell it for US$22500. The car is registered on my name, it has 25100 miles, the title is clear (VIN WBSUR9C54BVP76195- no lien, accident free) also it drives and runs great. It is located in Houston, TX and I'm selling it because I'm not in US anymore. I live in UK with my family now.

Cheers

I also have a bridge I would like to sell you. It's in Brooklyn, but since I moved to Nigeria, I have no further use for it. Please send my your bank account number because I also have a couple of billion dollars I need to deposit for safekeeping.

Two economists are walking down the street, one sees a $50 note on the pavement.

He looks at the other and says "hey, a $50 note".

The other economist looks and says "nah, it can't be a $50 note; if it was, someone would've taken advantage of that."

The first economist agrees, so they keep walking.

Ask Christopher Gonzales in Davie Florida where his car is. They posted his service record in one of the pictures.

Just for kicks, I texted his cell. He no longer owns the car. (That service record is over 3 years old).
