    I received this email yesterday from an unknown sender......

    "The motorhome is in excellent condition, no problems here, HPI clear, service history, 5 months of mot and tax. I must tell you that it belonged to my father who unfortunately passed away 3 months ago. The price I am looking for is 7400 pounds (I can also have it delivered within the UK for 120 pounds). Please see the attached pictures. Let me know if you are still interested. It's located in Foveran, near Aberdeen.
    Thank you,"
    Having never heard or contacted the sender I was somewhat confused, then I thought that all my boats had come sailing in one one day when I opened the first attachment....

    SCAM OR WHAT?

    Be aware you may be next! :Rofl1:

    one last note

    i see your looking for a motorhome,
    yes we all wanted the best for the money and u should be prepaired to travel to see the perfect van but DONT pay anything or anyone any money or transaction with anyway other then seeing the van in real form,,
    take someone from the forum with you theres someone from everywhere on here and are willing to give up an hour of there time,, take your time and if its too cheap i mean 1/3 of the price or seems unbelievable then it may well be fraud,, dont give details to any payment scheme ,, always
    get a full HPI ON THE VAN dont exept anyones hpi as they could get a log book loan after the hpi,, so pay around £25 for a full credit and crash report,,, and take somone with you mechanical and body knowledge,:thumb::thumb: good luck,,
