Hurricane Michael dropped a tree on our low mileage 1999 Lexus SUV. I have been absent from this forum for years after "losing" our P38. My wife has always wanted to return to this model (the only thing great about the Lexus was the reliability) and so I tried to purchase an incredible looking special edition P38 listed on Craigslist. The price was very good and so I agreed to pay it without any negotiation. The price was almost too good to be true but the vehicle was so good I could not afford to ignore it. So the arrangement made was for a $2.5K down payment to be followed up with the balance in cash. We had planned to fly in and drive cross country back to North Carolina. Initially everything went well. However, when I pressed for the owners name and a statement of intent for the down payment to be made by a US Postal Money order everything went sideways. In the past, for me, US Postal money orders have worked well when making purchases on Craig's list. Is there some scam involved using postal money orders that I am unaware of? I am really at a loss here trying to figure out what I did wrong. Thanks for your thoughts-Oh and to be very clear this purchase had nothing to do with the P38 listed here at Range Rovers.net in Atlanta.
