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. Thank you! So i sent Hi Gill, Thanks for the swift reply. I am very interested in the car, but have a few concerns. I rang the number on the advert today and a gentleman answered, he had no idea about the car? Is the car the one pictured in the advert on auto trader? I hope you understand that although £6000 is a great price for the car it is a lot of money which I could not afford to lose if the deal was not legitimate. Normally when something seems to good to be true, it is too good to be true. I understand what you have written in your email, and am sure you are genuine. Sorry for being suspicious. How long has the car been advertised? Have you had a lot of interest? How would the deal be carried out? What is the name of the shipping company and are there any guarantees? Do you have all the keys, including spare? Would I be able to see registration and car before buying? Just a few questions for you. I would even consider flying over to Spain to view the car if it was genuine. Look forward to your reply. Many thanks Regards this below. 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. I will then notify Google Wallet and they will contact you to explain the entire procedure. I will be waiting for your reply as soon as possible Thank You!! Next email from him. Hello again, Let me assure you that you will just love the vehicle, it\'s a great car and I am sure that you will take good care of it. Just to show that I mean business I have already contacted Google and provided them complete transaction details. I think that they will contact you shortly by and notified regarding the transaction terms (shipping and payment), and security measures. Please email me after Google\'s staff contacts you and let me know if we can proceed forward with the transaction. I will proceed with the shipping immediately after they will confirm the payment. I will provide all the shipping info at that time, to you and Google. I look forward to end this deal with you. Regards, I sent a further email requesting a phone number to contact him on, to no joy. He was not available by phone, the number on the ad is also a scam. Next email. Hi, I have just received an confirmation from Google Wallet that they have send you the invoice regarding our transaction. Please let me know if you have received this. I will wait your email Thanks Dear friend, i don\'t wanna sell my car but because of economical crisis i got some financial problem and i need this money asap so i can pay my fees quickly. That is why i drop the price a little so i can sell my car fast. i hope you understand my feelings and you will consider me as your friend.Unfortunately I am not available on the phone earlier than Thursday, until then we will communicate via email. If you are so suspicious about this transaction I would rather close this deal with other person than to know that you\'ll be very stressed hoping that I am a honest person, until you receive your car.Your peace of mind is a lot more important than this deal!!! I didn\'t ask you to send me the money,I wanted you to to send the money to Google and they will hold the money.They are the best guarantee that you get anywhere.If you decide not to go through with it there is no problem.I got quite a few offers left. Get back to me and let me know what you decide. Thank you for your time and interest.Whatever you decide I wish you good luck. Sincerely,
