I received this email yesterday from an unknown sender......

"The motorhome is in excellent condition, no problems here, HPI clear, service history, 5 months of mot and tax. I must tell you that it belonged to my father who unfortunately passed away 3 months ago. The price I am looking for is 7400 pounds (I can also have it delivered within the UK for 120 pounds). Please see the attached pictures. Let me know if you are still interested. It's located in Foveran, near Aberdeen.
Thank you,"
Having never heard or contacted the sender I was somewhat confused, then I thought that all my boats had come sailing in one one day when I opened the first attachment....

SCAM OR WHAT?

Be aware you may be next! :ROFLMAO:

Yes

There are lots like this out there, judge for yourselves.:RollEyes:
This one is on this site, try --Motorhome Sales, Used Motorhomes, Auto Sleeper Nuevo II ES ,2010, £9,700. I reported it a while ago, disappointingly it's still on.

Enquiry goes to one email and answer from another.

First email enquiry reply from seller below.

The motorhomeis in excellent condition, no problems here, HPI clear, service history, 5 months of mot and tax. I must tell you that it belonged to my father who unfortunately passed away 3 months ago. The price I am looking for is 6,700 pounds (I can also have it delivered within the UK for 120 pounds). Please see the attached pictures. Let me know if you are still interested. It's located in Foveran, near Aberdeen.
Thank you, Paulina

Here's the follow up email replying to enquiry to view the vehicle at Aberdeen.

Let me explain.I do not live in Foveran, I live in Poland so I can't go there every time someone wants to see it, plus I can't go alone as I am a woman. I will get somebody to bring it to you (a neighbour of my late father) if you decide to buy it but we have to close the deal through Google Wallet. Delivery can be arranged in 2-3 days and you will have the chance to inspect it before I get paid. You deposit the money into Google Wallet and then the motorhome will be delivered. Everything is covered by Google Wallet, they will keep your money secured during the inspection period. This purchase protection guarantees that the motorhome is exactly as I described it; basically, once delivered, you'll have 5 days to inspect it and if you decide not to keep it you will get refunded in no time and they will charge me with the return costs. I will get paid only after you confirm that you received the motorhome in good order. You can read more regarding this option at http://how-to-use-google-checkout.co.uk
If you want it, let me know your phone number along with your name and address where it must be delivered so i can register the sale with Google to proceed.

If you will decide to not go through now then is not a problem I still quite have a few more offers from potential buyers. Hopefully, I made myself understood and we will be closing the deal. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

one last note

i see your looking for a motorhome,
yes we all wanted the best for the money and u should be prepaired to travel to see the perfect van but DONT pay anything or anyone any money or transaction with anyway other then seeing the van in real form,,
take someone from the forum with you theres someone from everywhere on here and are willing to give up an hour of there time,, take your time and if its too cheap i mean 1/3 of the price or seems unbelievable then it may well be fraud,, dont give details to any payment scheme ,, always
get a full HPI ON THE VAN dont exept anyones hpi as they could get a log book loan after the hpi,, so pay around £25 for a full credit and crash report,,, and take somone with you mechanical and body knowledge,:thumb::thumb: good luck,,
