Can anyone explain this proverb for me

  1. Mar 17, 2008 #1
    The proverb is :
    " If it seems too good to be true , it probably is. "
    English is not my first language.
    Thanks for any helps.

    I can offer a scenario to demonstrate: If someone offers to sell you a car for a lot less money than you think the car is worth, don't buy it. The person may be trying to cheat you.

    You got the grammar wrong on that. It should be: "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is".
