Someone posted a 600SEL on the local trader, and i emailed him asking for a VIN number of the car, cos he claims, he imported it from Europe and it was in Arizona all this time and he just brought it to Canada recently, and he replies...
Hi it's a european Vin and is not recognized by any carfax site.
Thats it! no contact info, no details nothing. is he even interested in selling it?
And i was like "huh, that's not your problem", i email him back, telling him that my friend at MB can look it up for me. And he replies....
Why do you want the VIN without seeing the car first ?
Also I have gone to Mercedes Canada with Vin and they can not pull it up either and told me to contact mercedes in Germany for parts or info.
So i get a bit annoyed now, cos there are so many rollback japanese w140s these days, you can't trust anyone, And he says "Germany for parts"? what kind of MB needs those kind of parts? so i tell him, if you're not fake, then why cant you send me the VIN? and he replies... (mind you i asked for a phone number etc... 2 emails back, and he still hasnt provided any contact info)
I haven't got a clue why you would think I'am lying about the Car.
....[snip rant about my apparent attitude problems]
Is it impolite to ask for a VIN number? Do I have an attitude problem for repeatedly asking him for the VIN number? Or was that a scam?
