We had our monthly crime report at the Parish Council meeting last night. And I was told that someone in the village had been duped on E-Bay. They had bought a motorhome that did'nt exist. It's dificult to believe that people still fall for this type of con trick.

Some of these frauds are very convincing and people who are not computer savvy or used to doing deals sadly get duped.

I feel so sorry for them.

It's very sad, but amazing that someone would buy a motorhome without going to look at it, and not paying until they pick it up.

We have bought motorhomes on ebay with no problems, however we go and look at the vehicle, get the vin number, chassis number etc do MOT history check over the phone and HPI checks before we even bid.
