((nia wong)) >> dave and denise, this transaction seemed simple enough... it involved a truck with its title and the victim even vetted out the seller for two hours. it wasn't until he reached the dmv that he learned... he'd been taken for a different kind of ride. it all started with this craigslist ad kirk duldulao spotted last friday. a 2004 ford f-350 ...with 20 inch wheels he says was a deal too good to pass up. ((kirk duldulao/sm "i was like, if you can do it for 7 grand tonight, i'll give you cash in hand right now.")) duldulao is one of the two men you see here in a back lot...purchasing a truck from the seller he met through the ad. ((kirk duldulao/scammed out of $7,000: "he seemed like a really honest guy, he had the titles, the keys to the truck.")) after taking the ford for a test drive...duldulao handed over the cash and drove off with his new ride friday night. come monday....it was a transaction which left him without his money and his truck too ((kirk duldulao/scammed out of $7,000: "i walked into the dmv to try and get a 30 day permit, and apparently they told me that
ago.")) the dmv took the title and metro seized the truck. another unfortunate case michael rodriguez says is all too common. ((michael rodriguez/metro pio: " it is very difficult for us to catch these suspects because often times they're moving.")) rodriguez says there are ways to protect yourself when purchasing a car online. buyers should ask for i - d and enter the vin number onto the nevada dmv's website to see if it may be stolen. ((michael rodriguez/metro pio: "they should have a paper trail, have when metro is notified....rodrig uez says it's often too late. a lesson learned the hard way for duldulao...who is sharing his story to warn others. ((kirk duldulao/scammed out of $7,000: "it's not about the money now, but it's about bringing him - scums and scammers off the streets.")) ((nia wong)) >> just to clarify....duldul ao did ask for this seller's i-d which matched the name on the title. he suspects the i-d was fake. now he says he's tasked with finding the suspect... to get his money back.
((dave courvoisier)) a whirlwind day for republican presidential nominee donald trump... centered around his new immigration plan. trump's day started with a meeting with mexican president enrique pena nieto in mexico city. trump said the u-s has the right to build his proposed wall along the border we share with that mexico would pay for the wall wasn't discussed. president pena nieto denied that claim... saying he told trump that mexico won't pay for it. despite their differences, both men called the meeting constructive./// ((dave courvoisier)) after the meeting, trump flew to phoenix to hammer out exactly where he stands on immigration. taking a hard line, trump promised that if elected, all immigrants in the united states illegally will be subject to deportation. that number is estimated to be 11-million people.

nonpartisan" group at the "for nevada's future" office. many of the democratic voters in attendance laughed when trump talked about his love for the people of mexico and his respect for president enrique pena nieto. while there were plenty of "boos" and eye-rolling, at one point the whole room erupted when trump talked about his proposed right to build a wall between the u-s and mexico. but many in attendance said this was pretty much what they had expected... (( that he was going to lay out a plan... the first line he said was 'he's going to lay out a plan for immigration reform . he has no plan, he doesn't know what a plan is. he's just a reality show and his stunt in mexico was just that--it was just a stunt. )) ((katie boer)) >> we spoke to republican, fernando romero, a local president for the partisan group "hispanics and politics" here in southern nevada. he told us trump's speech tonight was essentially the same rhetoric he's had all along. (( he is not softening
as his approach to immigration and i personally don't see anything positive coming out of this )) ((katie boer)) >>now we reached out to the trump-pence campaign's nevada headquarters following tonight's speech... they issued this statement..in part saying...
