So comes the risk of buying a used car from a private seller as-is. Buyer beware and this is why a clean title (that could have been washed easily) and clean carfax mean nothing. Just as one shouldn't expect a particularly safe transaction with these documents one should assume the worst and pay what they are comfortable paying. He can save mankind's soul and advertise the flood or he could just sell it for scrap and not waste his time

Is it wrong only if you know for a fact that its been in a flood? What about if you bought it at an auction or estate sale and suspect it may have been but aren't completely sure? I see your point but until money isn't part of an auto transaction you can't expect all transactions to be ethically pure
