EDITOR’S VIEW

Desperately seeking honest people

Last month, my husband bought a new vehicle. We decided to sell the truck he had been driving on a daily basis as well as his beloved 1980 Jeep CJ5 Renegade, which he restored and has cared for more than 30 years.

We posted ads on both letgo and Craigslist, listing the basic info — make, model, year and asking price.

That same day, we received a response of interest for the Jeep. This person wanted to purchase the vehicle — sight unseen — at full price. Since he lived on the West Coast, he said, he would need to hire a company to pick up the Jeep and deliver it to him.
