is it too good to be true or is it legit.

now the car is in spain but is a uk model the selling has said he is offering cheap because it is uk model and know wants to buy a right hand drive in spain.

then secomnd email said he is selling cheap because he needs the money for finacial problems.

i ask how payment would be made he said using Yahoo Finance has anyone used this before?

i pay yahoo they keep money til i receive the car and pay him after 15 inspection days at my say so.

i ask for contact number but as yet nothing.

All the symptoms of a SCAM

Steer WELL clear.
sounds a bit dodgy to me.....

The old addage of "if it seems to good to be true....." comes to mind, especially when buying a car!!!
Found this on the RAC web site about scams.

What does it say (sound familiar):

The vehicle is offered for sale at a significantly reduced price, potentially 50% of value, possibly less. The vehicle is a UK car, but the owner is now living abroad, often Portugal or Spain, they need to sell the car to buy a LHD.

Note also the Yahoo Finance offer is a well known scam.

No such thing.

I cannot believe you are seriously considering this

The exact same scam was in the Sunday Mail Judge column yesterday
