    Is this wierd (scam)?

    I seen a car on Gumtree and emailed the guy to ask the mileage and asked his contact number so can view it, got this reply!!

    Thank you for your interest to buy my car ...

    The car is still available for sale. Here are the main things regarding it, please read them:

    The price is £*,*** pounds, cash in hand. I am looking for a fast sale and this is the reason for the low price. I am a military sergeant and I will be deployed to Afghanistan on the 2nd of April.
    As I will stay there for at least 6 months I don't want it to get old in my backyard. Also I need to pay for a debt I have and this is the perfect opportunity to get rid of both.

    If you decide to come and test drive the car and if you agree with the price of £*,*** pounds, please let me know and please reply with your details (name, address) so I can reserve the car for you.

    I will wait your response quickly,
    Cheers

    lol....Thought so, as he told me where he is (Town) and told me he advertised it on every location on Gumtree to get attention!! He sent me pics and said do whatever check you want!!

    Yeah it's weird, I don't think a person in the services would write an advert like this - especially not a sergeant, who holds a position of authority!

    Support our troops :thumbsup:

    23 SAS are the TA 'arm' of the SAS. No-one is the SAS would advertise the fact that they are in the SAS. Certainly no-one in the SAS would advertise the fact that their unit was going on ops & then name the theatre & date!

    Thanks, does put you off when they dont give a contact number and also tell you to bring cash!!

    Hi,
    I have had the same email. After doing a little research I found an IP address in the header of the email address "The source host name is "www.citymovingsystems.com" and the source IP address is 64.65.185.202." Country United States, State/Region WA , City Auburn.
    I think it maybe someone in this company scamming. I would do an email source search online yourself and see if it comes up the same and I would let the company know, as in this present climate it could bring them down on a fraud charge.

    I actually emailed the same guy and got the exact same response from him but didnt get back to him as i thought it sounded dodgy as well, glad i'm not the only one!!
