    I'm a bit confused by both of these because they seem stupidly low prices, but both sellers appear to have good amounts of feedback, particulalry the first.
    Are these "hijacked" accounts and how does one tell?

    Both are scams, yes they hijack accounts, and no I have no idea how but the other day they mixed half a car dealers vehicle in with the scams.It all looked correct and even the dealers did not know about it until Paul (I think) told them:Smile:

    Very, very easy, if it is cheap, it is a wrong one, scam or on VCar, being a member of Fun you can always ask in the forum before you do anything.

    I'm in little doubt that they are indeed scams :Angry: However, how do the
    barstewards go about the scam?

    Simple.. they convince the mug punter to pay a £1000 deposit, usually in to a Barcleys bank account ( which belongs to a money mule as has just been on the news )
    End of story..

    The money mules are usually people who think they are making easy money with a 'home job', simply accepting payments and passing them on.. In the articles on television almost all the mules were students ( all IQ and zero brains ! ) or stay home mums

    Ah, thanks. It's frightening to think that there are people stupid enough to pay a deposit like that :Eek!:

    Greed is a cruel master.. If some plonker believes he is getting a van at less than half its value you would be amazed at how stupid some people become !!!! :Wink:
