Dealership selling a 2004 Camry with $69,000 miles in Texas?

I received a notification that it is my aunt's birthday. She is a nice lady, so I went to Facebook to wish her a happy birthday. However, I saw this car first:



Of course, I needed to rotate that image, and I still cannot recognize a Camry. Mom has had one since 2006 and I have seen it every day for a couple of years. When Mom and my brother wake up I am going to take a picture of her car from that angle. Allegedly it is a 2004 Camry XLE and they do not provide any additional information or pictures. I cannot find much information on standard equipment, but the XLE came with alloy rims and a rear sunshade, so I am pretty sure that is a different submodel.

Kelley says that a 2004 XLE is worth $1,676--as a trade-in!

Of course, that is assuming good condition, clean title, and a mere 151,711 miles.

9,500 miles a year?! How do they figure?!

It also says that the car would be worth $2,484 - $4,089 to a private party, with the average being $3,287.

I started looking at Camries for sale under $2,000 and found some going for surprisingly little, like this one: $1,200 for a 2006 Camry with 118,000 miles. Weird? Yes, but wait! It sold ten months ago in Texas, allegedly for $5,000! The car looks the same, but the pictures look different.

I do not know why Facebook showed me a grandmamobile in Texas, but this is the only weird image for it:


Supposedly it is a dealership, but that picture looks like garbage. Maybe there is a one-in-a-million chance that it is real, but even if it is in El Paso, which is three times as close as Houston, it wouldn't make sense for me to pursue it.

The only thing that makes any sense is that they focus on highly-modified trucks and other expensive vehicles. Beige Betty is a liability to their image and they just want to get rid of the car that has zero repairs to date.

Lately I haven’t seen many “steals” on cars.

There are a lot of scams but they sure are easy to spot.
Need to store, ship, gift card, etc LOL

I realized that I did not post the link for the one in Texas. Here is a 2006 with 85,000 miles for $800: https://ecomodder.com/forum/attachme...1&d=1592346310

It says that it is being sold for a realtor or banker. That seems to be the case for all of the questionable ones.

I messaged the poster.

Do you notice that it looks like someone cropped out most of another picture below and one on the right or something? I do not know what the glitch in the Matrix is:


Here is the 2004 in Texas for $800: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...6105986842272/

The Camry post in Show Low and posting account were taken down.

Weird! Someone responded about the 2006:
