Auto Trader Scam Listing "The Mule"

Hi Steve, damn that sucks, particularly in light of the situation prefacing the trucks sale. Thieving scumbag scammers have no morals. Would be fitting to set up the scammer on a sting with local law enforcement but so many departments don't have the manpower to take this stuff seriously.
Wish I was closer, I'd like to catch someone like that.

There's more than a few parties that are interested in the matter.

The diesel racing community isn't huge, but it's a pretty tight knit group. People from all over the country know of Mike and The Mule....including people in the Pacific Northwest.

I'm sure it'll work out.

I'll add this...not so sure the guy who's name, number and business address are listed is the actual scammer.

Sure would be fun to watch someone go to jail for this.

Though Lolo is where it's "reported" to be, that's no reason to think that the perp is in the Northwest, is it?

Seller's phone number is 406-273-3806, which IS Montana, however....

Got any links to discussions? If so, PM me, NOT here!
