    Yeah its a common scam, been going for years.

    Surprised auto trader and the like dont make people more aware of what to look out for, or even check their own ads.

    I had the `German scam`carry on a couple of years ago. Except the clown was trying to purchase from me.

    Who falls for this nonsense?

    Maybe he needed the Landie to transport pallets of hard currency he inherited from his long lost uncle Bob Zabala who happened to be the late King of the African principality of Umbongo and he wants to share his wealth etc....etc.....ZZzzzzzz.
