Exclamation Warning: For those selling...

So I started getting calls from an unkown Vegas area code and nobody left me messages. I finally answered and it was some lady from "National Auto Shopper" offering to sell my defender for more than I listed. She said that on average they have been selling in 30 to 40 days. They would list my car in a number of places and ebay, take care of the title transfer, blah blah blah. Anyway, they wanted $500 up front to do all of this. I did some research online and I read some very bad rip off reports from this company...who is also listed under autoshopper.com

It was also very strange that they never answered when I called them back directly. All representatives were always with other customers, etc. Very strange to say the least. I talked to the lady more any they basically make money by financing your car and letting the buyer take on some interest. Seems like a decent concept and a good way to screw a buyer who has no concept of finance, however the company itself sounded a bit shady. Plus any place that want's $500 up front seems like a bogus deal.

Anyway, just my friendly advice...and yes mine is still for sale if interested:

I received daily calls like that when I had my Mini up for sale. It's been gone a week now, and the calls are still coming in.

I told them I researched their business and I would like them to remove my phone number from their call list or I was going to report them to the BBB. A bit over the top, but so far so good.

I received the same calls when I listed my defender in Autotrader. Everyday, at least twice a day, day after day, until I finally answered and told them the truck was sold.

I told them in the beginning to keep the 500 when the truck sells and send me the difference, that didnt fly.
