    I've been following this with great interest, good work Terry.
    One thing I've noticed (and probably seen by loads of others, but I'm normally behind the times), the use of things like the 1p auction to build up a trading history.
    So you advertise 1p or an image of a 1p coin for sale, 10, 20 or 30 times and get another account to make the trade, not a lot of expense. This gives the impression of a trading history....if you don't check!

    I think this one is genuine. Just checked items that have been purchased and some are motorhome related.

    The scammers don't usually give a phone number:Smile:Because they cannot speak English:Smile:
