How does this scam involving buying a used car cash-only work?
Other info: The seller has met with me in his workplace. So that's good. I told him that I want to get a CARFAX report, hence I need the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of the car. He gave the VIN. I didn't get a CARFAX but I'm assuming that if it had a lien on the car, he wouldn't have given it.
So what is it? It feels sketchy to me but I can't pinpoint if it's a scam or not.
