Classified Ads Scam
| 2008 PEUGEOT 207 XTAdvertisement states that the car is located in Victoria. When contacted about checking the car out we are informed that the car is actually in Western Australia and Ian Cameron is in the Armed Forces and he is about to be deployed overseas and needs a quick sale. He also states that this is the first time he has sold a car over the internet and directs the buyer to a website called Automobile Escrow. Beware, most likely run by Russian criminal gangs. Also, he is offering to ship the car from WA to Vic for us to check out with a mechanic for 10 days and if we don\'t want it we can just send it back for free???? The trouble is that according to Mr Cameron, the car is on the Army Base. I don\'t think so. Why would he advertise the car as being in Victoria but then tell us it\'s on an Army base in WA? His grammar is poor and he repeats himself and of course, he also wants to know if my daughter (who was interested in the car), has the cash available now as he has lots of people lined up to buy it. On an Army base? If this is the case, why not just sell it in WA instead of going to the trouble, not to mention the cost, of shipping it to Victoria? Also other advertised cars of this make and model with a lot more kilometres on the clock are selling for almost double the price. There is also the glaring omission of the VIN number. I wonder why that would be? Possibly so the vehicle can\'t be checked to see if it has been stolen, written off, etc, etc? |
