Has nothing to do with the site,but I thought I'd share it with you guys.There has been an ad show up in the local newspaper classifieds here a couple times lately.Some yo-yo advertising a 1970 Boss 302 Mustang in "good working condition,good interior,good exterior" for $4,800 USD.He has an email address as his contact info!What a moron!! :roll:

That could be a new venue for scammers. Some people might be more trusting of the paper because they think its local. If there is a way to rip someone off scammers will find it.

So do you suppose if someone actually tries to make this deal and gets ripped off for $4800 in the process, that they will write a letter to the editor of the newspaper and rip into them for allowing scammers to place ads and for not doing anything to protect their readers?

Just asking.
