buying a used car for the first time
i'd like to tell you how buying a used car for the first time went for me
Car dealer charged with tax evasion, DA says
A Lloyd Harbor man who manages a Uniondale car dealership was arraigned Wednesday on tax evasion charges, accused of withholding almost $160,000 in sales taxes over four years, Nassau prosecutors said
of course i did not know this when buying the car, only when i was test driving the vehicle and he was in the passenger seat and i let go of the steering wheel for it to veer left did he mention " oh it's been in an accident, it was nothing really i was going 35mph and hit a deer "
the whole time he played off that it was his own car since he bought it new and that the accident was very minor, and if you check the original ad ( here's a link to an album i made of the original ad :
), the ad states the car is " clean "
only after signing the title and trying to register the car at motor vehicles did i realize something was amiss, after i bought a carfax and saw that the car was totaled and that it now stated it had 200,000k miles instead of the 58,000k the seller was advertising .. still not sure if there was an engine swap or something
i rushed back to his house to get my money back but he said he spent it already. somehow he got the title to state one owner, don't know how. he also folded the title perfectly over where the it states the car's condition as "SALVAGE/REBUILT "
the man was a professional criminal and i just happened to be one of his victims. he was almost hypnotic and i got unlucky
what i learned from this encounter was to take more time buying a used car, to be very wary of car's being advertised without a license plate, and that craigslist and facebook marketplaces are full of dealers, ex dealers, and wannabe dealers
luckily the car has been doing pretty well, i haven't had a problem with it since i've been using it for about four months, and i was even doing some pizza delivery with the car
thank you for your informative videos and with regards,
edit: i seem to have accidentally deleted the photo of where the craigslist ad states " clean " at the bottom, but i assure you it did
