A Hendersonville man is scammed and robbed after answering an ad on Craigslist about a car for sale.
Police say the man saw a posting about a Honda Civic for sale in Virginia and contacted the person who posted the ad. The victim then traveled from Hendersonville to the town of Verona. Investigators say when he got there, there was no car. The man who claimed to be the seller robbed the victim of $12,000.
Police arrested 20-year-old Derek Shifflet a short time later. They were able to recover the stolen cash.
