The Chevrolet Suburban, normally valued at around $60,000, was selling for half its normal price. All he had to do was bring $30,000 in cash to a McDonald’s parking lot in Nashville, and the new vehicle would be his.

Yet another Craigslist bargsin that was too good to pass up.

Was the ad placed by a Mr. R. McDonald?

"The detective told me I probably wouldn’t see the money again, that they probably wouldn’t even see jail time. That’s what I don’t understand. If I’d stolen it, I’d be in jail already."

The stupidity factor may have something to do with that.

If they rented it at Enterprise, they should have a paper trail. Unfortunately, it may lead back to the
infamous Nigerian princes....

That's definitely a non-perky, moody-pouty headshot of the newsperson. "Drive by sucker," indeed.

Sorry for your loss, Kyle. However, I can make your money back many times over. I have exclusive access to a Nigerian prince who needs some help moving 30 tons of gold bars out of the country. We offer you 20% for only 50k cash for expenses. See my add on Craigslist.

If there was a Darwin Award for 'suckers', Kyle would certainly qualify.

Banks normally blow the whistle at large cash withdrawals. Evidently the security officer at First Mattress National Bank wasn't on the ball.

Let's give everyone in this story some credit for managing to make car dealers look slightly less shady.

No? OK, I understand.

You can't con an honest man......
