    Hello,
    The motorhome is still for sale. Immaculate condition, no damages, nothing to worry about. 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 £5,900 delivered at my costs.
    The deal will go strictly according to eBay Buyer Protection rules and policy.
    Thank you

    And they are selling a jetski aswell.

    I had exactly the same email from this person yesterday about a Seadoo jetski on ebay, thought it was a scam so googled the email address and came across you guys!!

    Reported it to ebay and they have taken it down.


    Hello,
    The seadoo still for sale. Immaculate condition, no damages, nothing to worry about. 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 £3,300 delivered at my costs.
    The deal will go strictly according to eBay Buyer Protection rules and policy.
    Thank you

    Scam

    Was quiet amusing asking her if I could phone her and view the car to receive this reply. I am unable with phone so please use email as primary contact option. I dont use phone for internet deals.
    Due to my location and since view is not an option I have requested personal support and I was approved to use Buyer Protection Program. Here is how the process works through the Buyer Protection Program:

    - I make the private listing on eBay for you,
    - you go and buy it through their website,
    - you have to pay for the item to eBay to secure the funds,
    - they confirm me that they received the funds,
    - I deliver the car,
    - you receive the car,
    - they send me the money,

    Everything is covered by eBay. I will get paid only after you confirm that you received the car in good order.
    Let me know if this is acceptable. Thank you

    Sarah

    Try that wee fella Cameron who lives at 10 Downing Street, he may be in the market for one since he appears to be getting us (UK) involved in North Africa now. :Cool:
