OK, here is the deal with out going into too much detail.
My car gets broken into and the only thing stolen is a radar detector. Been watching ebay and Craig's list closely for the possible thief to make a mistake and put it up for sale too soon and then I'd start asking questions.
I find a seller with-in a 20 mile radius of my zip selling a radar same make and model as mine a week 1/2 later. Item description is :NEW but the picture is out of the box so I ask the following questions: 1) Is the item really "New" 2) Do you have the box and manuals 3) Where are you located I'd like to possible do a local pick up and I get the following response:
Seller : "i dont have the box i throw it out like 6 weeks ago i dont wanna meet cause i am working so i have no time "
I then ask for the serial number to verify the remaining warranty:
Seller "i had it like 2 months sorry but i didnt buy the warranty"
Then I ask again for the serial number just so I don't get scammed kind of way and I get this:
Seller "this item is got no serial number the guy before me took it out"
So, at first he didn't so call "Buy the warranty" and now last thing says the "guy before me took it out"
It is possible it isn't mine but I would bet any amount of money it is STOLEN.
Right now I have his name and address
thanks to my computer skills
hmmmmm... what should I do??? I know the cops won't do anything.
