Man walks in (early 30's) to purchase insurance for a car he bought off his "friend". Bragging about the good deal he got on this 2000 GMC for $1800 I ask to see the VIN #. He hands me the title. I immediatley notice that it is not a proper (real) title. It is a plain freaking piece of paper that has been copied on both sides to look like the original title (damn good job...signed too). But white, nevertheless. ;)
... When announcing this fraud to him, he argues in dissbelief that his "friend" would do this.
ME: Can you contact him to see where the real title is?
HIM: Well I cant, He moved to mexico.
ME: Seriously? (chuckle) Do you have a receipt for your money?
HIM: Yeah, his wife wrote me a Bill of Sale.
ME: His wife?? Is her name on the title?
HIM: No, she just wrote it saying her husband sold me the car.
ME: Do you have the car in your posession?
HIM: Yeah. I'm sure its a missunderstanding. I will go back to her and see if she has the real title.
HIM: Can I still get it insured so I can try to tag it?
ME: SURE --- NEXT!!
