From the Museum of Hoaxes, a particularly nasty scam:

An internet scam has been using the photo of a Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan to try to sell supposed used vehicles….

In the advertisements, which have been posted for cities across Canada and in New York state, someone claiming to be the soldier’s Montreal-based father indicates they want to sell a vehicle that they allege belonged to Shipway for $6,000….

“This will be my gift … in memory of my son,” say the ads. “All I want is to find the right person … who’ll love and take care of this car in the same way he did. I’d like to make a person very happy and to light a candle for my son once in a while.”

Just sell the fake car. Leave the poor guy and his family out of it.
