, we can donate our old or
unwanted or unused cars to charity organizations. They will sell the car and take the

car for tax benefits. USA
I have an old unused car that is more than 10 years old. I wanted to donate this car to a popular charity organization. I had made all the arrangements for them to pick up my car along with the title certificate. I gave them all the details including where I have parked my car.
Yesterday morning, I was surprised to find the following note in the windshield of the car:
“Hi, if you would like to sell this, plz call John Doe, (xxx)xxx-xxxx”.
I was surprised. And, I was very angry. This is a scam. I wanted to donate this car to a charity. Someone who came to know this information wanted to buy this car from me for a few dollars and profit themselves by reselling it. Thus deprive revenue for this charity. I have a feeling someone inside the charity organization is tipping of these scam artists.
Scam artists are there in every country.
I just ignored that note. The charity people picked up the car this morning.
