    So i have my 2006 mustang up for sale on craigslist and some local guy who claims to be a senior in high school said he would trade me his website which has 11k people on it daily and 6k revenue a month, is it a scam ? Or how can i make sure that he is telling the truth and that he is not lying about the revenue. He said he is willing to meet in person. I asked him why would he trade it if its making 6k a month and he said because he can't wait he just wants a car already and him and his partner are already working on another project. I am kind of a newb with website building and all that stuff so any help would be appreciated thank you.

    lol. that would be a scam... unless your car is worth 60k, but I kinda doubt it is...

    Tell him if he made 6k a month, he could give you cash for the car.

    I don't like the sound of that. However, if he lives close to you then you can go and verify traffic and earnings yourself. Don't accept screenshots because those can obviously be faked. Check the backlink profile for potential incoming Google penalties.

    Just be aware that there is most likely a reason he wants to get rid of the website.

    Be VERY careful!

    Exactly what i was thinking, if he made 6k a month he could just pay me, but i was just wondering if there was any chance that the kid really just was stupid, if there was any way i could see if he was telling the truth like what proof should i ask for or what? He said hes 16 and he is willing to meet up with me. Btw my mustang is worth more than 6k bro. lol.

    Definitely a scam ----the only times I have seen such one sided deals turn out to be true are in cases of divorce. Vendetta selling of spousal property......and this kid can't be married going though a divorce. The only other legit circumstance could be if he inherited the website recently and he is a complete idiot

    You guys really think im stupid, aha yes i really have to ask i know this is most likely a scam but i wanna see if there's even a minute possbility it's not, thanks alot guys who are putting some good input. I will check for google penalties and revenue/traffic in person. He said he can log in in person and show me. The website also has a twitter account setup with about 3000 followers

    Since we all know it's a scam, which makes the "High School student" a scammer, post the URL of the website so we can all make fun of it.

    In my honest it's more likely that they are trying to scam you than it's that they are silly enough to go ahead with this trade. I don't actually know the condition of your car or anything like that, but according to this page it isn't worth more than $20k :

    http://www.edmunds.com/inventory/used/vin.html?vin=1ZVHT82H665162588&make=Ford&model=Mustang&sub=Mustang%20Coupe&year=2006&trim=&zip=90404&radius=50&invtype=USED

    If his website is actually making $6k PROFIT a month, then it's worth atleast $60k.

    If he is banking 6k a month, he would be paying cash and holding onto his paedophile website.
