Those who've used this route, do you always converse/email through Autotrader? I suspect it's dubious but a contact is asking me to reply direct which would be the user number I'm seeing I guess?

I think its just folk trying to bypass the phone call fee which can be a few ££. While I dont think its suspicious but buyer/seller beware.

The last time I tried to sell a car on autotrader, (a long time ago) I mainly got calls from companys who wanted to charge me £50 to connect me to a guaranteed buyer they had on their books, I said thats great if you have a guaranteed buyer I am more than happy for you to deduct the £50 fee out of the sale price when the transaction goes through. I always hung up half way through their explanation of why it doesn't work like that.🤣

Thanks for those replies, we have to talk sometime I suppose if the guy needs to view so I was being over cautious. Perhaps it was the Nigerian email address that frightened me ! :LOL:
Don’t worry he has millions in his bank account. He offered me 1.5 million just to use my bank account details.

However, he may be running short because, when I asked for 2 million up front, as a gesture of goodwill, he backed out.😎

I just tell them I'll go and find the paper work, they've always gone by the time I remember to check.
