Used car buying from private party? Scam??
Hi, Last night I test drove and negotiated a price on a mercedes e-class, used car. It's 4 years old, has 13000, and is very clean. Everything checked out in my mind accept for the fact that the car didnt have on it license plates. When I asked the seller why the car didnt have plates she said her husband doesnt like to have plates on any of their cars. This sounded really fishy to me and so I asked why and asked if they were a dealer. She said no, they're not car dealers. Has anyone heard of a scenario like this? no plates? How do I verify everything is OK, is this a huge red flag?
