Need help with buying a car

    there is a car in the autotrader that is well below £rrp

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

    details in first post

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

    please advise

    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.

    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.…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.…563
