I think so . . . it may be one of those consignment sales scams that keep popping up. That same CL add is running in many cities/areas. . . NH, NJ, WI, ID

The ad could be the DiMarco Auto Consignment Sales folks popping back up again.

They have a new name now (after 6 months or so on the sidelines) "Mantis Auto Consignment Sales"

Same fake pictures, same fake reviews that are hacked into company web sites, etc.

As you may recall, their baited hooks were through CL ads with ridiculously low prices. When you respond to the ad, they direct to to the consignment company who then takes over to clean out your wallet.
