Found a good looking 2010 honda accord on craigslist. Guy wants 3900 and wants me to buy paypal cash cards and send him the card number. Is this safe?

That smells like a scam a mile away.

Read our car buying tips article, and info about common phishing scams on the sidebar link. 

Don't swallow the sucker bait!

The 1st thing is to verify it's a legitimate deal. Never pay for a car with any kind of cash card, or western union,  moneygram etc. 

If the price is way lower than the book value suspect fraud, or major problems. Between the fraudsters and bad sellers a person can get taken advantage of very easily.

Good Advice, Matt..

The greed factor comes to mind here. It's the lure of an unbelievably good deal that snares bargain shoppers every time! Read this article we published and don't get Phished!
