    Dodgy Motor Traders trick - lowering the price so that it comes up higher in the listings.

    Really annoys me, as it serves no purpose appealing to those that are not looking at something in that price range! Just imagine if you are looking at a £500 banger market for example, and you have a dealer with 20 odd adverts for cars at 4k or 40k. Waste of time and effort!

    You tend to see this practice as routine on Autotrader and the like.

    That one definitely - maybe they are trying to hide under the new dodgy trader banner? Looks like you have succeeded again, you little scam detective you!

    Fraud office should employ you as scam hunter!
