Just am hour ago had a most unusual "Door Knocker" experience that I hope isn't something anyone else is seeing.
I was working in my driveway of my Home in Riverside, CA, when a white late model Chevy sedan pulled up and the driver asked, "How much do you want for that trailer?" (my 1973 Hunter Compact-II) I politely replied that it wasn't for sale
. The party then wanted to press the question and asked again, "How much cash, right now, will you take for that trailer" I told him that it wasn't for sale
that I was using it but that I could give him some information as to where some could be found advertised locally.
He next, now almost rudely, said, "No, I want to buy that one right now" and produced what looked like a bundle of new $100 bills and said, "Name a price, I'll give you $3000 right now". I again told him no that, even if I wanted to sell, that $3000 wouldn't be anywhere near the selling price. I again tried to give him web information but he wasn't uninterested and backed down my driveway and left. He never got out of his car, and the entire event took less than 5 minutes.
As I had already noticed that he did not have a trailer hitch, something seemed suspicious, so I took down his license
number and, after he left, I contacted the sheriff's dept. to report what seemed to be a very suspicious person. A few minutes later an officer arrived to take a report and, maybe, the rest of the story will be in tonights 6 O'clock news.
Has anyone else seen this guy?
