I sold a Ford Explorer on Craigslist and the man is trying to get money back?
Question: I sold a ford explorer on Craigslist for 600. The original price was 750, but since the man since he'd have to do repairs to some of the defects that I listed I agreed to drop the price. I was unaware of all the defects and didn't list some however. His girlfriend came with her brother to check out the explorer which they agreed to buy after they had a look at it and drove it around. The title is under his girlfriends name now and she is the one who agreed to buy it. He's mad because there were some defects back door windows don't go up all the way headlight burnt out and gas gauge did not work and said that he'd buy all the parts and repair himself but we'd have to pay him fifty percent of the cost of the parts or else he'd take this to court? Can he do this? I'd agree because I feel bad for my ignorance but we are going through financial troubles at the moment.. What can I do ? Only serious answers preferably with people who know about the law or Craigslist sales

It depends on your state laws. Most states don't have lemon laws for used cars, which usually covers defects of major functional parts - not a window or burnt out headlight. Given the fact that they came and checked it out, I don't think you have anything to worry about. With used cars, it is usually a Buyer Beware market. This has nothing to do with Craigslist, but your state law. You need to check into that, but most likely you don't legally owe them anything and are not responsible.
You are in a very tough situation. Do you have a copy of the contract? If you do you are going to be well protected. You can tell him that he is more than welcome to bring the car back but his $250 is non refundable. If he says that he will not bring the car back, and you have the contract, and his address send him a certified letter return reciept requested saying he has so many days to bring the car back in the condition he left your driveway with it. Make sure you keep a copy of the letter and the reciept. If he doesnt return the car on the day you specified, call the police and report it as a stolen car. If he brings it back all torn up, file charges for vandalism. If the police will not get involved, you may have to take him to small claims court.

It's not rocket science. I learned to drive a stick when I was 10. SURELY someone can take you out for a half hour and teach you how to do this. Parent? Relative? Co-worker? Classmate? Ya got $10? Put a freakin' ad on craigslist "someone teach me to drive a manual"
100% scam. There is no car. There are stolen pictures of someone else's car. There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "car shipping company/agent" and will demand you pay for "shipping costs", in cash, and only by Western Union or moneygram. Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of cheap cars, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. If you google "fake car shipping scam", "western union shipping fraud" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts of victims and near victims of this type of scam.
