Came accross am as in gumtree for a Bmw 2008 M3 for £10000, it had no contact details just to email nothing unusual there. So I emailed using both mine and my partners email as we really wanted the car. 1st alarm was when the guy replied to me and not my partner, once we asked to go and view the car and offer to pay cash the guy replied ...I am working as a rig electrician for Petrofac and i am located on Rowan Gorilla platform (North Sea oil fields). I cannot arrange for viewing/pick up but we can use eBay\'s services. They offer 3 days for you to inspect the car before paying me and i will be sure that I have a genuine buyer who won\'t mess me around.
I have briefly described eBay\'s transaction steps below:
1. Buyer, Seller reach an agreement (price and delivery conditions) ; 2. Buyer sends the money to eBay and they inform the seller that the payment was received ; 3. Seller delivers the vehicle ; 4. Buyer accepts delivery and informs eBay about the acceptance ; 5. eBay releases the money to seller. You\'ll get the chance to inspect the car, test it and everything you like while your money are safely held into eBay\'s account. ONLY after you confirm with eBay that you agree to keep the car, they\'ll release the money to me. In case you don\'t like the car you will get a full refund.

If you\'re keen to buy it reply with your name and delivery address so i can register the transaction and eBay will send you all the info regarding payment and shipping.

Then I decided to google his email address and found this site! Be wary folks! I would never buy a car that I have not seen not test drove he lost with me as I\'m a mechanic not a gullible woman that he thought! And I knew 10 grand was too good to be true as older versions go for similar price.

Hi

My car is in perfect working condition, very well maintained with no issues. No pets, non smoking car. Never been involved in accidents. It comes with full service history backed up by receipts and invoices and all the documents including the V5.

Current location of the car is Peterhead, AB42 3LP. I have moved here with my job. The asking price is £10000 for a fast sale. £150 extra will be the delivery fees. I have many people interested in this car. First decided, first served.

If you are interested let me know soon and I will explain you more in detail!
P.S. My mobile says no network coverage but I do check emails regularly

I also nearly lost £6000 to Mike Wilson. He had an Audi A4 convertible 08 plate for sale. I thought the price was to good to be true. He said exactly the same thing as the other couple with the BMW that he worked on Rowan Gorilla Platform at the North sea oil fields, so he had to do everything by email as he had no signal on his phone. I saw his so called picture and details on the linkedin site which made me think maybe he is genuine. He then sent me the ebay protection policy about the payment details, that the money goes to Barcleys and ebay will hold the money for 3 days to make sure your happy with the car. Luckily someone I knew had it happened to a friend and told me it was a scam. I was very lucky
