Theres alot of cars with the same sort of thing on ebay: BMW M3 2005 for 15grand,PORSCHE 911GT3 for 17.5 grand!!! i wouldnt trust them at all.
I emailed one to do a test as the car was alot cheaper than it should be and was told the car was in italy and not to worry as he would pay for the dhl shipping!!! After he had recieved the funds!! I dont know why people would be sucked into this, if it looks too good to be true then 99.9% of the time it is!

Well i know that Pistonheads is a nightmare if you advertise a car for sale. I had my car on there for sale and i recieved loads of emails from overseas scammers about it. So i am guessing that the same problem must occur in reverse.....rubbish or fictious cars advertised for sale. It sounds like someone is fed up. Problem with having a lot of expensive metal in one place i guess.

Am I being really dense here or what? Just what is this 'SCAMMING'?

Here's what I assume it to be... Bloke pretends to own a car (er, with NO feedback), puts it up for sale at silly price, sells to someone, and they pay him through paypal, cheque, money transfer or whatever, buyer goes to collect, but no car and no seller....

Is this right?

Are there ACTUAL people out there that would REALLY do such a fantastically STUPID thing as paying money over to a complete stranger BEFORE meeting them and/or the CAR??????

Please tell me this isn't true and that there is more to it than that....???

PPPPPPLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEE

Yes thats about it. You have people with lots of good feed back too >50 but they have just brought a load of 50p items to boost their score. With time you cannot see what they have spent as EBay times out the old links
