Lew Lazarus sounds like an old-school con man, the type of guy you visualize when you think of a used car dealer from the "old days". As some of you may know, I was a used car dealer for many years and I do not like that image. I would say that Lew is the kind of guy, who gives used car dealers a bad name.

Please BEWARE!!! I have had not so good luck and his Frazer convertible was less than desirable. If you do purchase from him, have cash in hand, secure the vehicle with a clear title, load it and move it at the time of transaction. Don't trust, what you cannot see and verify every word. It could cost you more than your hard earned dollars. He is a smooth talker and should be in Congress.

I think there are New-school "Con Men" out there that make the "Old-school" ones seem like amatuers. How else can you account for scams these days, being permissively ignored and disregarded? You get to be an expert at what you do best, and people literally worship these men as being the greatest, the nicest, most helpful, so very interesting, like Gods, and the sheeple keep handing over their cash to these Bernie Madoffs of the world. Statistically I read it comes down to odds. The longer you do the "perfect crime" after 5-10-15 years and on, and get away with it, is when you should be looking for payback catching up with you. Can't wait for some to get theirs, as I have been ripped off before for thousands of dollars personally. Fate plays an important part, despite the fact most carry guns to protect themselves.

A con man plays on your greed, and can only con you if you allow it to happen. A fool and his money are soon parted. As P.T. Barnum said..

“There's a sucker born every minute.”


“Never give a sucker an even break.”
