    Their site is no different to any other 'for sale' site, they don't check the ads so there is no guarantee it is genuine.

    More likely the owner has missed off the first digit of the advert price ... probably should be £24,800.

    Thanks Minx
    That was my initial thought, I didn't want to contact the seller and appear to be stupid (even if I am):Sad:

    Reputable site or not it is an obvious scam. It's not only Ebay that's full of scams but Gumtree, Autotrader etc etc. They all accept ads online so until someone reports it they haven't a clue what's being advertised. The price told you it was a scam. They always use a strange price as well such as £4800 or £4620. Would you advertise at that price - no you wouldn't, you would use figures such as £4995 or £4599. Note the phone call will also cost you 37p per minute, odd that.

    If it looks too good to be true, it usually is!!
