Nathan and Madison Donovan live in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. He can't work because of an injury, so she found a job at a call center. The job would get them off of social assistance, but she needed a car to get to work. The found an online company and sent a $600 deposit for a car loan, but it was a scam and their money vanished. So they told a news outlet about the rip-off and asked them to warn other readers.
One of the other readers was Denis LeBlanc. He'd been trying to sell his 2007 VW Jetta online but only received low-ball offers, so he offered it to the Donovans as a gift. Nathan hesitated to visit a stranger giving away a perfectly good car, but eventually he went and found the LaBlancs were true to their word. "Everything is going awesome now," says Nathan. "Madison is working full time and we are no longer on assistance."
