Bought from Farcebook?!?

Buyer beware doesn't seem to be cautionary enough.

I just cannot understand how some people can be so goddamn clueless. Did they even inspect that frigging death-trap before handing over their money? Who the fook buys a used car that doesn't start from a stranger online? Stoopit is as stoopit does, and that's really fooking stoopit.

They should be made to wear a sign around their neck that says "Steal From Me - I'm Stoopit".

Not just on FB, but also Craigslist. Bought more car than you can afford? Bank/whatever entity you're paying still holding the title?
No sweat. Find yourself a stolen blank title from whatever state you live it, fill it out yourself, and sell the car out of state.
Collect the money from the buyer, stop making payments, the bank repos the car from the unsuspecting sucker you sold it to.
Sometimes, I'm convinced that the scam is the No. 1 industry in the US.

Yeah, I read an article about that very thing a few days back.

The recco from that article was to meet the seller at the DMV office to do title xfer and payment. If title is bogus the DMV will know. Likely the seller won't show up anyway if there's a scam afoot.
