    This practice has been around for as long as there has been used cars. In Ontario(Canada) this is known as "curbsiding" I believe because the people operate the business at the side of the road, the showroom is often a curbside in your neighbourhood. Anyhow it has been illigal for many years and if convicted large fines and even jail-time is handed out to those charged. The very method of marketing these cars is often thier down fall as they usually have more than 2-3 cars listed on-line with the same phone number. Government agents scan the sites looking for these multiple listing.

    I don't see a problem with a lot of casual curbstoners. They pick up a repo car on http://repofinder.com and sell it on http://craigslist.com two days later. What's the big deal?

    A good amount of these people are also "jumping title" meaning that that since they don't have a dealers license they should be paying sales tax, but they are not.
