Out of interest, what is it about these two that gives it away that these are scams.
Just so I know what to look out for myself.
Is it the price on the first one (or both for that matter) ?

The price .... and .... if you are already looking for a R34 you will know that ....

.... the first one is a blatant copy of a car that is currently on sale on the Distinctive Cars of York site :eek: They have just copy and pasted the DC of York photographs and have made no attempt to hide it :mad:

I wonder if the guys over at DC know about this.

larry and marry signed up with ebay on the 22nd and 23rd of Jan 2007 and have no previous sale record. "For more informations, please..." ... can't even handle English properly.

Do they collect the money and run? How do these people operate, I wonder?
