Advertised an immaculate Rav for sale including photos mileage at a very good price, in Ross on wye. Strangely asked for my number first off but never rang until I persisted and contacted him via email. He came back to me word for word as other scam listed under John Notter. He is working as an engineer in the oil fields off the coast of Scotland, which is where the car is currently, papers signed waiting to be transported. He sent me two very convincing emails allegedly from eBay but the logo was a bit blurry and appeared to have a box around it (cut & paste perhaps). I contacted ebay to authenticate the details he gave and was basically told by ebay we do not trade in this manner we have no \'holding account\' for funds and we advise trade with cash or PayPal only, neither did they recognise the email address that it was sent from. The email authenticated him as a \'good ebayer\' but when I clicked on the email address \'johnlewiser@1234gmail.com\' the address \'johnnotter76@gmail.com\' appeared, I have therefore linked these as one and the same person. I had a real lucky escape as was very taken and came sooo close to transferring the money, incidentally £3000.
