NAPPANEE, Ind. --A Corvette owner who wanted to put a new top on his beloved car turned to Craigslist for help. He found someone to help – and that was the last time he saw his car.

For Mike Stull, it was a match made in heaven.

"Love convertibles, and a Corvette; I love Corvettes,” said Stull.

He won the Corvette three years ago at a charity event at the urging of his wife.

"She kept nudging me; saying, 'Bid higher, bid higher, bid higher,'" said Stull.

Earlier this year, the car needed a little maintenance, so he went to Craigslist looking to save some money.

"I put an ad on Craigslist saying, 'Does anyone know how to put a top on?' and a guy contacted me and says, ‘I've done it before, I used to work in a top place,' So he said he could do it,” said Stull.

That was the last time Stull saw the car.

Sure hate to see this type of scam --at least they got the punk!

Always have to be very aware of the scams when using Craig's List!
