Details of Scam Report
Quite simply went on Autotrader looking for a car. Came up with a Kia Sportage which I am well for a 2011 model the value is around £15000 so to good to be true at £6000. Anyway I still remained interested but contacted the e mail address and said why such a car at such a price. E mail back explaining her move to Cadiz in Spain and no desire to drive the right hand drive car there, so decided to sell it on to a UK resident etc etc etc. I e mailed again to say I might be interested and got another e mail giving ALL vehicle details (so I could check things) and great detail about a safe financial transaction through Google Wallet who would contact me to make arrangements once she received relevant details from me (ie: delivery point, contact number and so on). I DO NOT believe that is how Google would do it. Also look for suspect phrases and bad spelling on the e mail

Scam Email
Here are copies of the 2 e mails I received. Hello there, I am glad to hear that you are interested to buy my 2011 KIA SPORTAGE 2.0 CRDI AWD 4X4. Although I am registered in the UK,i recently moved to Cadiz, Spain (where my family is from) and the car is being shipped from here. I want to sell it in UK due to the fact that it\'s an UK version (right handed),it meets all UK standards.I bought this car from UK and It still has UK registration, so you won\'t have to pay any import and insurance fees.The car meets all United Kingdom guidelines so there will be no problem regarding UK Customs policy on receiving the car.The car is in perfect condition, the bodywork is immaculate,no scratches, dents or hidden defects as well as the interior in excellent non-smoking condition, never been implied in any accident and it is as advertised. The car comes with log book, HPI cleared, No finance. You will get from me the keys and all documents to register the car in you name.If the car is not how i described it, i will offer a full refund. It will be insured during transportation and for all Inspection Period that you will have ( 15 days ), will be delivered at your address in maximum 10 days.Final price is GBP 6,000 (the price includes shipping and insurance fees).The price is low because the car is right hand drive in a country where all cars are left hand drive so in the Spain is very difficult to drive this type of vehicle and nobody wants to buy it here in Spain. Instead of keeping it in garage (during this economical crisis), I decided to sell it to someone back in the UK for a really attractive price. I want to take this opportunity to assure you that this deal is 100% legitimate,the deal will be manage by a very well company,in this way both buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. Let me know if you need any further details or if you would like to buy my car. and the second e mail. Hello again, I want to inform you the the car is in Spain and it will be shipped from here to UK.The shipper I will use will deliver the vehicle to your door, you don\'t have to pick it from the port. Shipping will take 10 days maximum. Due to the fact that i am located outside UK and we can not deal in person,i`ve contacted Google Wallet regarding this issue and they told me that they could offer to me a program that is created especially for international transactions that protects both of us. They agreed to supervise this deal. You will send the funds to Google Wallet and they will keep the money until you receive the vehicle and test it.In this way both buyer and seller are 100% covered during the steps of this transaction. They will hold and insure your money until receipt of the car in good condition. That is how their service is working. As far as the seller concerns, i will be glad to know that Google Wallet is in possession of the funds during the delivery period. You will be given a 15 days inspection period from the day you receive the car at home( i will ship it to your address insured for full value to you ). If you decide to keep the car, then you will have to authorize Google Wallet to release the funds to me, and the transaction is complete.If the vehicle is not as described ( perfect interior,exterior,mechanical condition ), you will be able to send the vehicle back through the same shipping company ( return postage at my expense ), and ask Google Wallet to return the money to you. If you want to check the car here are the reg details #: # Vehicle Registration Mark (VRM) FD61SNN # VIN (chassis number) U5YPC813NCL130582 V5 SERIAL # : BU5097036 V5 ISSUE DATE : 13.03.2012 7 years Manufacturer\'s Warranty from Factory Road Tax til Nov 2013 If you want to read more about Google Wallet service please visit : If you want to get more info about their terms and condition please contact Google Wallet using the blue button from the website ( CONTACT US ) If you wish to purchase it and agree to these terms i will need you to provide your full name and address.
