    Got home today to find a card tucked in the front door. Our van was on the drive.

    T & M Caravans
    We buy and sell caravans, top prices paid.
    (Then a picture of a caravan and a motorhome)
    Branches in Surrey, West Midlands and Hampshire.
    www.tomcaravans.com
    email. tomcaravans@gmail.com
    Office. 0800 6965336
    Direct. 07470 262672

    I have no wish to deal with this company but I wondered if anyone else had heard of them.
    There appears to be a T & M Caravans in Ormskirk.
    The web address does not appear to exist.

    It was only a few weeks ago that a man knocked at our door and asked if we were interested in selling our van.

    Looks like a scam to me. I think you need to invest in more security around your van or move it to secure storage.

    That's Lancashire, not Surrey, West Midlands nor Hampshire which is why I smell trouble.

    As Mariner says, Googling the e-mail address finds a link to This Page. The Whois entry shows that the address was only registered on 27th July. The registrant (Daimlar Ltd) was the same for the paving web site as well (that site registered 11 October last year) but there are no contact details for the owner.

    Wiffs a bit to me.

    And on the web page, they have spelled Cranleigh as "Cranley" well worth avoiding! :D

    If the wife asks, tell her I chose cancer. (y)
