    I enquired about a car and this is the response all i asked was is the car still available lol...


    Hello,


    The car is in excellent condition, no damage, no engine problems, garage kept, HPI clear (no finance, no accidents) and it will come with all the needed documents!

    i don't even have to read that to know its a scam, if it seems to good to be true, it probably is...

    Looks like it. Why are they 'delivering' for a start? Why can't you go and pay cash on collection? That seems a bit dodgy for a start. Secondly why go through eBay?! Personally I'd tell them where to go.

    This has scam written all over it - its like that CTR which was posted on Pistonheads for around the 3k mark, but was located in Italy and they were prepared to "deliver" the car on receipt of payment + details etc


    Avoid like the plague IMO

    If they can waste a few hours delivering it for you, they must have enough time to waste a hour while you colect it! Dodgey IMO!

    Theres a lot of scams going around on Gumtree at the minute weve been requiring about puppies and We've wrote of to 2 different ads and got the same reply from both;

    -Are you a breeder?


    -Do you have kids?


    -Are use to puppies?


    -Are you sure that you are going to take care of any of my babies?


    -Gift me a Brief Description about your Environment?


    -Do you have a vet doctor?


    -Were exactly are you located? i am giving out them for free


    since they were owned and taken care of by my late daughter whom i lost to a drunk driver two weeks ago. Due to the mobile nature of my work since i work with EDICEF,i have relocated to Aberdeen and now i am in seminar that would last for 3months and it will not be possible for me to take proper care of the puppies which was a sole responsibility of my late daughter. They really do remind me of her sad memories all the time i look at them and hurt deeply. So, my greatest desire is to find someone who can properly take care of the puppies and if you can i will be so grateful, i can arrange for delivery if you cannot come right up here for the pick. Delivery is sure will be moderate since we spent just too little bringing the puppies up here. If this is ok by you, i will immediately need the following details in order to drop off the puppies as soon as possible at the delivery agency so that delivery can be done to your home soonest.


    Names in full


    Home address


    City/Town


    Mobile number


    Land line number


    And your postal code


    Be reminded that these puppies are for free and all you will have to do is to pay
