I received an offer from a Kyle hunt claiming to be an American living in London(for the last 2 years). Due to the nature of his work, he said he would leave the collection and paper work to his wife and she would hand me a bank cheque for the value of the car plus shipment fee and "stress fee" of which must be deposited back to his company once the cheque has cleared. All in all sounds very suspicious.
