    like someone else said the police probably won't be too helpful. any suggestions?
    I would certainly file a police report and give them the lic. plate number and any description you can of car and seller.. . . .the ad. . . . the phone number you called . . . . whatever. . . . you never know when something might pop -- or combine with other reports made. . . .

    Bank robbers have been known to write stick up notes on the back of their pay stub.. . . .

    Hope springs eternal.

    Cheers, Perry.

He walked out the other side of the dealership, got in a car and drove off. He planted the ad and never actually worked at the dealership.

    A month or so ago, this guy sees a flatbed in his driveway yanking up his vintage whatever it was up onto the bed. AFter a bit of an argument, the guys witha truck realized they been had. They had an ad saying:

    Vintage [whatever it was]. non running condition for sale, house sold must get rid of immediately.....you show up with a tow truck, take it off my property and it's yours.

    Somebody like this is probably a fairly unsophisticated criminal.

    1 - you should report them to teach them a lesson

    2 - I'd guess they did little to really cover their tracks.

    There must be a phone number of some sort you called to get in contact with this person. That and a license plate should make it pretty easy for the cops to do their job.

    At the very least, if I understand correctly, accepting stolen property is also illegal. You might want to file a report with the police to make sure you are not somehow implicated in this...

    Hey Skee2much... Sorry to hear about your situation.

    Hopefully, I may be able to help you out. What state was the guy's license plate from? If it was an Illinois tag.... I might be able to get you the full registration info you need.
