    my budget would allow me to buy a 2006/7 model but this is a 2009 8.000miles on clock and perfect condition.

    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.

    SCAM ALERT!

    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.

    rac.co.uk/for…476

    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.
