    After searching for a car on offer up, I’d say it’s 80% crooked.. First you have Warren Michigan dealerships posting thier vehicles for sale as private owners . pictures of cars are taken at a personal home , giving you a thought it’s privately owned. After you inquire about Vin numbers, mileage, interior picks you are most likely to be either givin the shaft or emailed and harassed constantly from the dealerships even privately text. How are they getting our private numbers?? 3 times I’ve went to meet in not so great areas to be stood up when I infirm them I have a mechanic friend with me or being told it’s sold after the hour drive. I don’t believe these foreign owned dealerships should be allowed to use these sites. Have them pay for their ads. They make enough money.. people are getting killed! Scammed! Why not make it easier to sort threw these offers? Just a shane

      The old saying Buyer Beware comes to mind in this situation.
