Teenagers caught in Porsche Scam on Craigslist

From Autoblog
The scam was quite simple and took advantage of folks looking for the too-good-to-be-true. The ringleader would post an ad on craigslist for a used Porsche -- in one case for a 2002 Porsche Turbo for $50,000 OBO, in another case it was for a 2005 Carrera GT that the "owner" had simply "gotten too old for." The siren-goes-off part of the ads was when the owner requested that potential buyers bring $22,000 for the down payment on the car.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Beware of the scams. Its still amazing how many people call or say or ask , about a $2,000 - $5,000 GT-R they find. There are too many people that really believe in those deals. Don't be one of those people.
