    Wellcome, to Utah where deals most under the table deals are done in donut shops, but now have moved to the parking lot. And as PT Barnum put it, There's One Borned every minute. HA,HA,HA.

    When has it ever been a good idea to buy stuff out of a random guy's car in a parking lot?

    Gawrsh, it's too bad it turned out to be a rental car. Because rental care companies never get ID from the renters or anything.

    I am surprised that she reported it to the police. She must have suspected that it was stolen merchandise, given the cheap price and the location of the sales pitch. Psst, psst, wanna buy an iPhone? Well, she can always get her money back by selling it on eBay.

    If it's too good to be true, it's not true. Don't be gullible. Buy from a reputable source.

    Well she shouldn't have bought it in the parking lot in the first place.
