I've said it before, and I'll say it agin, whay, oh why.

Pitch this car a couple of k below book and it might be a hook, but at this price, it just screams scam.

I can't believe that people would go for this, if I had more time I'd email to get the usual "the car is in Germany...." spiel, in fact, I will.

To be continued...

you know what they say - if you want something good for NOTHING - you get something GOOD FOR NOTHING

It was the other way around with my wives :eek:

Pretty obvious scam. Odd thing is he says 16 miles from SW1A 1AA which happens to be the postcode for the House of Commons. Could be another MP's fiddle?:D

These ads are easily spotted by the people on this forum BUT do you report them to the administrators of the advert page?
As responsible people we should, to help protect the more gullable!
I progressed one of these ads (after reporting it to Piston Heads for which they thanked me) and they go to great extents to get money out of you.
All of the vehicles appear to be kept in Spain ;-)
