    I got my car advertised on ebay, and i get a call some guy wants to come and look.
    He turns up, the size of a barn door covered in tats, has a look round doesn't ask many questions at all.
    Then turns round and says thanks but i'm not interested no test drive nothing?
    very strange

    i'm wondering if it was a case out!!

    Had you sold the car and taken a depost? Surely you can't just let random people test drive your car.. Sounds normal to me, not everyone likes to chit-chat, I'm the same. I'm sure you already covered all the possible questions in your add.

    From the experiences of a few people I know of,you have to be very careful,and I'd be wary of ever letting someone come to my house to see a car.

    I know one guy who did this,and his car was gone the same day,under very fishy circumstances,so be careful for a while.

    I guess I sound paranoid,but having owned a couple of the theft magnets from the last decade,you just get a nose for odd folk.

    did you get the details of the vehicle he turned up in? did it look to be his own vehicle? local accent? still got his number? a barn door sized gent might not be too easy to find should anything happen!

    webuyanycar.com or trade it at a stealer if you're going for another car.

    A neighbour sold his TT to them and got a fair deal. He may have lost a few hundred quid but potentially saved himself a bit of bother in the process.
