Straight away it looks dodgey.

Just with the capitals on most letters.

Banned

i dont think the "glasgow" part was in orig message, u added that in?

its not got a capital like the rest o the letters

Look's like he's not very fluent in English.

it look's like an automated script

sound s a bit funny

Sounds reasonable................................................................

Its a scam, happens all the time. Delete and move on.

This is a very common scam! The bank transfer / cheque appears to clear in your bank account after 3 days so you send the excess payment to his 'agent'. Then the bank writes to you to say that the cheque was stolen and is therefore not valid and takes all the money out of your account! Leaving you well out of pocket and even without a car if you have let them take it..

Don't touch with a bargepole!!!

seems legit, go for it


It's a premium rate number...070...

the classifieds are becoming littered with them as people make up to £2 a minute by people calling them

yep had loads when i put an ad in the loot-i just add no scammers to the text now-lol

"i Love This Particular Model.i Will Be Very
Happy If The Car Is Mine."


Bless...

It looks the same as on eBay when I was selling my PSP for £90 - they bought it and said if I send the item to Nigeria first, then they'd send me £300 via bank transfer once they recieved the item...

some one tried to get me to do it on a motor bike i was selling.
its money laundering they give you more and ask for the change from it but it never really clears(it looks like it does but a few days later it is declined) so you end up out of pocket with no car!!

I Think He Is a Very Genuine Buyer. He Is Very Keen to Have Tha Car That He will Pay you Total Sum of £150 Extra. Dont Lose This Fantastic Buyer. Give Him all The Detailes Required so Transaction Could Be Done Quickly.
