I found a car on Facebook Marketplace that seems like an incredible deal but the seller seems to know very little about it and says he just wants it gone. I grew very suspicious when he said I need to buy it the same day and was wondering if there was any way for me to see if the car is stolen?

Is there a limit on how many times I can transfer my insurance?
