You are dead right here.They do not have red brick houses or trees in Stornaway to the best of my recollection and there is no chance of anyone going to look at these vans in such a remote corner of the UK so the scam will be money first I guess!

Surely this has to be a scam at this price but company details and phone number are correct.....

If you follow the other items on Ebay there is a 5th wheeler Eco 5th wheel for 7900 if you look at the Calder website http://www.calderleisure.co.uk/cgi-b...l?v_vin=771177 it is actually for sale for 29,995.

Looks like the account has been hijacked

Yes there were three motorhomes on this account last night but I don't understand how the scam works. The company address is legit, so is the phone number. There is no 'buy it now' button on a classified advert so surely if you wanted to buy you would phone the seller but the number quoted is Calder Leisure's. They can't have diverted the landline number to a scammers phone, can they?
