Just had this from the Neighbourhood Watch team in Devon

There have been reports in the North Devon area of two males arranging viewings of cars advertised for sale. When the males arrive, one distracts the owner whilst the other looks under the bonnet. Whilst the owner is not looking, one male pours oil into the coolant and later pours some into the exhaust pipe. The males will then either point out the oil to the owner or test drive the car until it starts to smoke. The males will then ask for a discount on the car.

If anyone comes to view your vehicle, be vigilant, ask a friend to be with you if possible. Do not leave the potential buyers alone with the vehicle or allow them the opportunity to tamper with the vehicle. If an issue is noticed during the viewing or test drive, do not lower the price without having the vehicle examined by your own independent mechanic. Do not accept any deal that you are not happy with.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police via our website here or by phoning 101 quoting 50230005489.
