View Full Version : Ebay Car Scammer Alert: anthonhutchinso-8

Nearly duped into buying a Honda as the price seems well below the value price in the book, but once the 'seller' started to ask for monies to be send to a Google account and to pay for delivery, alarm bells started ringing....this is the 'seller's' response:

Pleased to have your reply Harry. The car has sat nav and the satnav dvd year is 2016.
I am a bit old fashioned and in different circumstances i would have opted for a face to face selling but being offshore my options are limited so I will only deal through Google. Purchasing this vehicle trough Google, you are transacting with Google Payments and agreeing to the Google Payments Terms so you will be protected 100% and I will be sure that you are a genuine buyer. Dealing through Google you will get the chance of a pre-purchase inspection at your address and with your mechanic.

Shortly described how it works:
If we reach an agreement on the price and delivery conditions you should transfer the money to Google.
Once it was transferred, they will inform me to organize the delivery to your address. I will charge you 150 for delivery.
Starting the date you will receive the car, i will agree and sign for a 3 days inspection period.
Within this period it is essential that you thoroughly inspect the car to ensure it is as described, check it is roadworthy, the mileage and all the documents.
If you decide to keep the car upon the inspection period, we need to do all the paperwork.
I will inform DVLA and the insurance company about the sale.
If you don't want to keep it, you must inform Google and they will refund you the money.
I will even support the delivery back expenses but I don't think this is going to happen since my car is in MINT condition, as described.

In order to proceed you need to be a registered member of Google so please open a Gmail account if you don't have one already. So, I need the following details from you so i can register the deal: your Gmail, address, town, postcode and the name and number of the contact person. Also, who do you bank with?
