    drumroll please...........

    Another fake ad by the RaceHoward gang.

    The only reason we havent seen a complaint on here is that their ad's are so blatantly fake that even the most naive buyer hasnt gotten taken yet.

    Pathetic.

    I e-mailed him. The ad's are so typical that this point... 'narrowed 12 bolt by strange"... only thing "strange" is that it is NOT narrowed & appears to have stock rallies or magnum 500's on a stock 1970 Chevelle... another stock looking under priced SS for 12,500. I wonder when they will learn... I hope no one is actually giving him money anymore.

    If it is Race-Coward, he blocked me last time. I detected a hint of Asian decent in his tone/words... many times they do not say certain words as plural... only singular. Example: "It have many feature you will like"... I give you good deal white-boy, you like car?" "I make good price, you buy car" 'It have Corvette motor, you like go fast?"

    'Harbone" a jealous fool, want to be "scammer".... remember that one?

    Race Coward YOU jealous fool... you make threat to Harb... you make big mistake... it catch up w/you... you pay for mistake.

    I had a weird thought while reading Scooter's post. Suppose these guys arent trying to run a car scam. Supposed they are spammers or trying to steal identity info.

    Say they post a car, nice pics ridiculous low price and then they get some email- the kind of naive guys who falls for the bogus ad and price- Suppose they are asking for name address phone number etc- whatever they need to steal identity or run scams elsewhere.

    That might explain why they havent bubbled up on the forum for a scam. It usually takes awhile before you know your identity has been pirated.

    I am going to bet that these guys are up to something entirely different-

    That's a hell of a deal....what looks to possibly be a 30k car for 12.5k


    So how does a scam like this work? How do they rip you off if they don't own the car? Try to trick you into a deposite?
