As some of you will know I have my A4 for sale. It went live today on Autotrader and I had an email within an hour of it going live.
Im a bit suspicious of the email as it looks to be a scam to me but having never advertised a car before (always sold word of mouth or traded in previously) I dont really know what to expect.
Heres the 2 emails I received, give me your thoughts please.
My reply answered all his above questions with a bit of a speel.Quote:

Everything he asked about in the second email was either answered in reply to the first or was in the advert, which I politely told him in reply to this one and then asked him where he aws located if not within the UK.Quote:
Thanks so much for your kind of lovely mail,am happy to hear from you that the car is still available for me to buy it from you,Pls i will want u to give me more details on the Shock Absover,Engine,Radiator,tires condition and the documentation of the car.So i will want you to please email me it's full details and the reason why you are selling it,also when is the m.o.t expires.just to let you know that i am not in the position to make call right now cos my phone dont have the permit to make an international call.So you dont need to worry once we conclude on everything i will locate a local pay phone station to give you a call.
Really just to let u know that as for the payment and the shipping arrangment,I will be willing to pay you with a Uk banker's Draft which will clear between 3-4 days in any Uk bank and as for the shipping i will handle that myself by contacting my international shipping agent and my machanic to really handle that for me.Also can u help me send some pics of it if u can and if not u dont need to worry urself about that am ok with this one.
