College girl sold SUV through Net

 Peggy Colas of Bridgeport recalled that the buyer of her 1993 model Nissan Pathfinder “talked very softly, and he said he was just going to drive around and visit friends in New York,” the woman’s brother said.

Authorities believe that Colas sold her SUV to Faisal on April 28 for $1,300. The man, who lives about 20 minutes from her, in Shelton, Connecticut, reportedly paid her in $100 bills.
Later that day, Colas posted a message on her Facebook that read: “I’m soooo happy I got a new car.” But by late Sunday, she was clearly upset, posting: “OMG! I HAD A CRAZY DAY... IT’S OFFICIAL. I HAVE BAD LUCK. SMH I HOPE THEY FIND THAT BASTARD.”

Colas, a student at Post University in Waterbury, was questioned by federal authorities after they traced the SUV to her through its ID number.

She was fingerprinted by investigators and the “for sale” sign that had been posted on her Pathfinder was taken by police so they could check it for other prints. Colas was again questioned by authorities on Monday. She refused to comment when she came back home, saying only: “How do you know I sold the car?”

“My daughter’s nervous,” her mom said. “She doesn’t want this guy coming after her.”
