Hey guys - is this a scam???
I've listed a Clio V6 on autotrader for a member of the family who doesn't have web access, so all the emails are coming to me.
I've received this one which I think is a bit dodgy. What do ya think???
I SAW THE ADVERT OF YOUR CAR WHICH IS FOR SALE.I AM OKAY WITH THE CONDITIONS OF THE CAR AND I AM READY TO BUY.I LIVE IN FRANCE. AM OKAY WITH YOUR PRICE OF £11,000
I CAN'T COME VIEW THE CAR AS I AM ALWAYS BUSY AT WORK BUT WITH WHAT I SAW ON THE ADVERT I AM SATISFIED .I WILL LIKE YOU TO SEND ME SOME PICTURES OF THE PRESENT LOOK OF THE CAR.I LOVE THIS PARTICULAR MODEL.I WILL BE VERY HAPPY IF THE CAR IS MINE.I WILL ALSO WANT YOU TO KNOW I WILL BE PAYING
WITH A BANKER'S DRAFT.
THE AMOUNT ON THIS DRAFT WILL BE MORE THAN THE PRICE OF YOUR CAR. IN WHICH THE EXCESS ON THE DRAFT WILL BE FOR MY AGENT FOR PICKUP.ONCE YOU HAVE FUNDS CLEARED IN TO YOUR ACCOUNT YOU WILL DEDUCT YOU MONEY FROM THE FUNDS AND WIRE THE EXCESS TO MY AGENT FOR PICKUP SO THAT HE CAN PROCEED WITH THE NECESSARY PAPER WORK AND ARRANGE WITH YOU A CONVINIENT DATE AND TIME HE CAN COME FOR PICKUP. IF YOU OKAY WITH THESE,YOU WILL HAVE TO GET BACK TO ME WITH SOME NECESSARY INFORMATION WHICH WILL BE NEEDED FOR THIS TRANSACTION TO PROCEED.THEYARE;
YOUR FULL NAME....
YOUR FULL ADDRESS WITH POSTCODE......
YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER...
THE NAME YOU GIVE WILL BE THE NAME YOU WILL SEE ON THE CHEQUE
AND IT WILL BE SENT TO THE ADDRESS YOU MAIL TO ME.YOUR PHONE NUMBER
IS FOR TIME TO TIME CONTACT.I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO A HAPPY
TRANSACTION.HOPING TO READ FROM YOU SOON.
Something not 'wright' here me thinks.......
