Tips for spotting a curb stoner on Craigslist or on-site:
Multiple auto listings, even multiple addresses, but ALWAYS THE SAME PHONE NUMBER
Multiple vehicles for sale at same location, whether it be a house, apartment or parking lot
Out-of-state tags on every vehicle for sale -- a sign of a curb stoner who may be fronting vehicles for a dealer not licensed to operate in your state
Before you buy a used car from a private seller or dealer, always ask for a Carfax vehicle history report or order one. Insist that an ASE-certified mechanic of your choice inspect the car before closing any deal.
