I tried to sell my A4 last month and after leaving my email address on the Autotrader advert I had several emails from people asking if they could by the car for the asking price and have it shipped overseas. Of course it was dodgy from the start and looking on the Autotrader web site confirmed that this is a common trick but I've searched this site and not fould a thread about it.
I had my car up for £10,000 and was offered a bankers draft for £15,800. The buyer said he had some money owing to him from another source and asked if i would transfer the rest of the money to his shipping company. Of course the shipping company is fake.
These people are as thick as sh*t coz I told them 3 times i would only except a cheque for the sale amount. Several emails later I even told the to F off but still they sent me the chq for £15,800.
Please beware guys coz its a massive problem and it wont be long before one of these tw@ts grows a brain and pulls it offs.
