    This is the reply I got from a lovely vendor and I was wondering if I should give 'her' an extra couple of grand for being lovely and shipping it for me? :Rofl1:

    Hello,
    Its still for sale. Excellent condition with no damages or any faults. All necessary documents available. My current location is Scotland due to my work commitments, If this is going to be a quick sale I will let it go for £5,400 delivered at my costs. Are you familiar to eBay? I will list the motorhome on eBay Motors for the £5,400 buy it now price and I will send you a link to my auction, so you can buy it immediate.
    As soon as you will confirm the payment to eBay, I will proceed delivery without any additional costs for you.
    In case you are not familiar with them, please read their Buyer Protection and will see that they cover 100% the transaction done through them up to £50,000. You will receive the motorhome with all the documents. As you know eBay is the best company of online transactions. If indeed interested in it and have the funds, I will list it on eBay, as I have a 100% positive feedback with them.
    Please let me know your decision.
    Thank you

    Evelyn


    Do people fall for these?
    Think I may look else where :Doh:

    Yes they do and also sending smallish deposits to hold vehicles that dont exist...
    As mentioned when you first came on the forum, so many scams ..

    Joining here, as you have done, will be the best money you spend on motorhoming..

    Are you on facebook ??
    Few vans here plus you can put a wanted request on..

    Do people fall for these?

    Of course they do, if the scammers were not making any money they would not be doing it.
    Buyer beware.

    Oh come on you lot don't seem to trust anybody! Please remember that Evelyn sounds a lovely name and I am SURE you are being to hard on the poor woman. As it is in Scotland, you MIGHT have to wait a little longer for delivery but what a bargain!!!!! :Rofl1::Rofl1::BigGrin:

    I bought one as well. As I am in a Kent, I will have to wait a few days more before she can deliver it to me.
    And at no extra cost to me!
    Absolute bargain.....

    What I can never understand is why Ebay with their very sophisticated software cannot police the website and bann these people who take over other ebayers identity.

    Cant be hard, try doing a duplicate listing and within milliseconds it gets flagged.

    We got scammed in work 2 weeks ago.

    A clients' email account was hacked who was due a large amount of money.

    Bogus bank details were given to us.

    Luckily the money wasn't lost.

    Be careful out there.
