    It seems the scammers have picked on Nemo !

    he has just had a fone call from a lady to say his van, same pictures etc etc is on a site called motorhomesforsale ( ?? )

    When she rang the advertiser they said they are in Sweden ( somewhere new at least ! )

    Anyone know of the site at all ?

    The police are a waste of space.
    Unless you can give them the name address. Age DOB and any distinguishing marks they are not interested in scams on line
    I reported one on eBay. I was not removed and police not interested
    The seller wanted a wire transfer. Before sight seen
    Crazy. I walked away

    I have now mailed them again.. This time saying that as they have been aware this a deliberate attempt to con people and they are aware of it, I can only presume they, the site owners, are complicit in the scam and will be reporting the whole matter to the police

    Yes.. I did get that bit !! :Rofl1:

    What is interesting and making me VERY sussy is that folk have tried to ring the number and it has been turned off.. Now the ONLY folk who new about the scammers were:

    The scammer
    The web site admin ( http://www.motorhomesforsale.co.uk/ )
    And those on here..

    Yes, I spose the scammer might be monitoring this forum but that does seem unlikely ?

    And I reckon we can eliminate Fun members, so that does only leave the site ( http://www.motorhomesforsale.co.uk/ ) admin in on the scam

    I run a motorhomes for sale site and also get this kind of thing. So far it's usually been quite obvious that the ads are fraudulent, due to the stupidly low asking prices. I normally take the ads down within a few hours.

    I can check the IP addresses that ad submitters are using, usually they are from eastern Europe or the far east, although the most recent ones have used UK IPs.

    There's no excuse for a website still having this type of fraudulent ad in place for days.
