    where can you submit scam reports (texas)

    to make it easier for others to avoid crap.

    I have a Lincoln Navigator for sale in CA and got contacted by a guy in Texas. Lubbock, TX actually.

    He has a dealership called "texas car place"
    website looks pretty good, BUT
    "who is" look up for tehir website gives phone number that is (806) 763-2222 - local wells fargo.

    Their address does not show up on google maps with any business (looks like pretty empty lot to me)

    9104 Ave. P , Lubbock, TX 79423


    And the guy said he would wire through citizens bank - which has no branches in texas.

    Name is Lance harris and #
    (806) 252-2696

    -public on their website - I am not posting anything that isn't public info.

    I googled that number and it comes up as that guy's mobile number for his real estate business.

    I personally would be a little cautious surely there are similar cars in TX and teh guy wouldn't need to but from CA. Just seems odd.

    yeah indeed - Why would he buy a vehicle he hasn't seen. I mean it is a great vehicle but might as well be a lemon. Then he would be hosed.

    Anyways seems that I am priced right and getting tons of local inquiries.

    my point is.....one major grammatical error or mechanical (syntax) error is a red flag. however when the entire paragraph is written by a recent ESL graduate.....caveat emptor!
