    Hi all
    Just thought I would introduce myself as a newbie, I have not purchased a motorhome yet but I have made a few enquiries.
    I have had a couple of replies and some people must think I have just fell off a christmas tree, I have been asked to deposit the funds in x bank and they will deliver the motorhome
    Has anyone else had issues with scammers.
    Still looking and staying alert.
    Paul

    Welcome dont part with cash till you have seen the van and no meeting on motorway services or the like as I know people have done. Ask us first for any advice you need

    'ello! We're (P plate) newbies too. I can only add to the "Don't give 'em yer money!" replies, and say hello and welcome. Lots of lovely people welcomed me and helped a lot, and still are. I heartily recommend paying the subs and joining properly; the advice will save you more money.

    Welcome aboard and keep that anti scam radar on at all times. Most MH folk are straight and true however there are a few scammers out there.
