Default Someone looking for Signature Edition and paying $50G

This afternoon the Owner's Club got an email from a guy who has a client wanting a Karma Signature Edition, and is apparently willing to pay $50G for the privilege. Unfortunately, mine is not a signature edition, but if any of you are on the list for one and want to make a quick $50,000 then here's the info I have from him:


Brian:

I see that you are a member of facebook-Fisker Owners Club, I have a client who is wishing to buy a Fisker Karma Signature Edition...NOW. The offer on the table is $50,000.00 - we have one member who is thinking or considering this price, please let me know if you have an interest, should you be a Owner of Fisker.

Thanks,

Robert B. Rosenberg

Not sure what this means, but the current listed tenant at that address appears to be an eldercare referral service. Here is the link to the tenant listing at the Mesa Verder Plaza.

Hmm... odd. Well, the followup email I got back from the guy said this:


I have worked with Fisker, Advanced Equities in bring investors to invest in Fisker as a Late Stage IPO Opportunity and that is how and why I am involved with Fisker Automotive, also it helps that I am in the same city, Newport Beach where Henrik lives.

Yeah, I Googled "Robert Rosenberg Mesa Verde" and found out he is Executive Director of Eldercare, which is in Suite 207, which matches up with your list of tenants.

http://www.askeldercare.com/company.htm

I would not want to contact him directly without you asking first since the e-mail appears to be dircetly to you and not the forum, so he may have privacy issues if I contact him directly. The NOW in his statement leads me to believe that he wants to buy a position on one for $50,000, not wait until one would take delivery and then sell it to him for $50,000 profit. I cannot sell my position as Fisker as no obligation to commit to selling the vehicle to anyone but me, his client would have to wait until I buy the car and then have me sell it to him. I would have to check the legal and financial implications of this transaction too. I know for a fact that no one would be able to claim the $7500 federal tax credit by doing so. Anyone no if there are laws to prevent flipping cars? I know I will have to claim the profit on my income tax, but anything else I should be concerned with should I decide to do this?

Don't worry about contacting him directly. I asked him if he wanted me to put the word out and he said yes, so he would be happy to hear from anyone.

Yeah, I'm not entirely clear on the $50k either. I mean if I was on deck for a Signature Edition and I could make $50k by giving up my spot I'd do it in a heartbeat, but it's not clear exactly what he has in mind.

So what happened with this? Since you are still talking about getting your car, I am guessing the deal did not go down? Just curious.

Still keeping my options open. Guy would like a $2000 referral fee, so I would still net $48k pre tax, which would be about $36k post tax or less. I have never owned a limited edition car before, so I am not sure if it is worthy of commanding more or if I am just being greedy or if I would simply rather have the car, seeing as I would probably invest the profit and lose it all in this crappy market and be out everything.

Dude, seriously... if you can get $36k out of it you should. I mean you can just place another order for the car and still have it in December or so, but you'll have shaved 1/3 off the price. The Limited Edition thing is not going to be worth $36k for at least 30 years if ever. I'd do this in a heartbeat if I had the Signature Edition.
