junk cars for charity


It’s a really dirty business. And some crooks just can help themselves. They’ll even take advantage for sick kids to make a buck.

As my daughter’s daddy, that really bugs me to see these guys putting up (illegal) flyers with kids on them to make a buck.

The donate your car for cash scam is everywhere.

These guys are tripping over themselves to fight for your car and post signs all over Brooklyn. In fact it’s quite competitive because they’ve taken to cutting out the last 2 digits of each other’s illegally hanged signs.

Everywhere you see signs about “donating” your car for “cash” or for a good cause. 1800Kars4kids – I’m sure you know the jingle were the first to really advertise this new line of business. Blood disease, cancer, all the most dangerous and common diseases can be fought with the help of these do-gooders right?

Just who is on the other end of the line?
