There are legitimate sites that do lease swaps. If he is making payments why does he NOT want the note in his name?

And craigslist seems to attract most of them. Sometimes anonymity is a good thing...Sometimes not.

This person would need to be in his 50s or merely flipping these cars if going at that exaggerated rate. 20-30 times? Yeah, sure, buddy.


I would never had entertained this idiot.

Typical Craigslist scam Use Craigslist cautiously, and it will be good to you. But if you don't keep your guard up, it can be very, very bad to you. I use it to buy used furniture, find garage sales, look for discount stores I haven't heard of, etc. I don't buy cars, get a roommate, or buy cell phones on it.
