    What do you think of this website.

    It seems a scam to me

    Woah

    The cars seem to be priced very cheaply. Have you tried making any enquiries about the vehicles listed for sale?

    Looks dodgy to me, the cars might all be class D.. not sure though, keep us posted:)

    why would you pay up front for a car that you haven't seen ?

    Oh stop it. These cars are worth more than twice the listed price. If this is real I'm buying.

    Yes, I don't trust them though. They wanted me to pay by bank transfer and never see your money again.

    The reviews are from external sites X)

    For example Hubert Shore said "Very quick service - no 'hard sell'. Exceptional quality on the car. Help when needed, given time to look at car and think."

    Yet on CarBuyingAdvisor someone called christine said "Very quick service - no 'hard sell'. Exceptional quality on the car.

    Help when needed, given time to look at car and think."

    by legit you mean it's a real address ? how does that make it legit ?

    a few weeks ago it was wepayanyexcess.com/ which doesn't exist now but it was also that 'legit' address.

    seem to be a lot of businesses at that address.
    one review which is amusing excerpt follows ...
    "I probably would recommend this dealer to somebody who has more money than sense or who loves asking people to do their job and are content that they don`t do it.For the rest of us,spending hard earned cash for a decent car,DO NOT touch this bunch with a long stick!!! "

    By 'legit' I meant 'steer clear, it's a dodgy looking office next to an off-licence'.

    Stay away

    This is a scam website - they have been reported to Action Fraud by a number of people. It's all very plausible until you want your car delivered - do not touch them

    Just got an Aston Martin for 20k, can't argue with that.

    If you go to to about page and Google image search their staff photo comes up with a completely different company

    Their account has been suspended. I reported them last week

    They are now operating as colne-usedcars.com/

    The Colne-usedcars.com website will transfer you to AutoTrader once they have blocked your IP address - however masking IP will take you direct to their site again. It is likely that they will change web address again this week so we need to keep tracking them.

    Just asked a couple of awkward questions on colne-usedcars.com got blocked and diverted to Auto Trader asked the bank account name and on checking at companies house the company appears to be applying to be struck off.



    I asked them if the free delivery coverd northern Ireland,
    Told me it did seemed very nice,
    But no one gives free delivery and free return to Northern Ireland it costs to much,

    To the guy jimhuf who purchased a austin martin for £20k let us know when you get it.
