Use a proxy to contact them, and go look at it. You would kill yourself it it's not a scam, and you missed out.

It does sound and look to good to be true (suspicious!). But ya just never know lol! Checker out real good for leans / theft first, once cleared. And once the signed ownership is in your hands and the keys are in the ignition and your sitting in the drivers seat, car running, in gear and your foot on the hammer (and your bud in the passenger seat with his hand on the equalizer lol). And only then would I hand over the money.

Your more than likely right. It would probably turn out to be a big waste of time. But stranger things have happened. Air on the side of caution for sure.

i like their philosophy! Ive never had money (probably never will) and Ive always wanted to work for what i get (but winning the lotto or somehting would be nice...lol). BTW, they have very nice freakin cars

i just read this article on yahoo today about Warren Buffet's son:

yeah they do have super nice cars haha and im not gonna lie, im very envious. but my dad has owned his own business and worked at becoming a huge impact on the fitness world since he moved out to california from michigan when he was 21. now we have two gyms, soon to be a third, 24 hour fitness is trying to buy us out, and he's still going at it like crazy. he's been an awesome example and im going to school to follow his foot steps and already help run one of our gyms since i was only 18.

also, i read the article on the Buffet son, pretty cool. it all makes sense, and i laughed at this..
"Musician and now author Peter Buffett preaches the message in his new book "Life is What You Make it"

considering I have this tattoo on my chest haha
