For more than a year, his old boss had been saving to afford a Toyota Corolla 2008 for its high fuel efficiency. Until recently, when he couldn’t wait anymore to have a 2008 model which he was not able to afford yet, he went for a Toyota Corolla 2006 instead.
The grill, headlights, and the bumper didn't look in line
The Toyota Corolla 2006 deal turned out this was truly a fraud
As the man drove his car to the office and informed its price tag was N2.2m, the thread owner's eyes roamed over the car. Then, the front fascia caught his attention. It seemed the grill, headlights, and the bumper didn't look in line.
To make a surefire statement over if his boss got tricked, the man takes a photo of the VIN and asks for help in investigating the history of the car. The forum's members quickly got the information for him.
The findings read:
- Last bid - $275
- Trucking/Towing to nearest port - $200
- Additional fee - $1,000
- Clearing - ₦500, 000
- Shipping roro - $1,200

Another forum member even found photos of the Corolla in its original, ragged condition, which kind of shocked the thread commenters.
At the end of the post, the man asked if he should tell his boss about it. What is your advice for him? I personally don’t applaud the idea since it may appall the poor man, but it is guilty not to let him know.
