Probably my craziest CL experience over all the years. I posted a sealed
BLOPS2 early yesterday morning. I get a text not more than 5 minutes later. Guy is asking all kinds of questions like "didn't this just come out, why are you selling it, etc." We arrange a meet up. He gets there before me and texts me to ask what type of car I'm in. I reply and ask him the same. He never responds. I pull up (bank parking lot) and see a police car. I'm thinking "good, the police are close by if this goes bad." I'm looking down at my phone to text him that I'm there and next thing I know the police officer is knocking on my window. He says "I'm here for the game." He has the money, so be it...but check this out. I don't remember giving him my name and I use google voice for CL, but while I'm driving down the street I get a text from him saying "Thanks (insert my name here)" Hmmm...did that dude run my plates or something?
Probably, people stealing games and selling them on cl , et cetera is not uncommon, so he probably ran your plates to see if you had any prior history of theft, or other illegal activity.
