    Hi Nicole99363, Thanks to you I have saved R1800-00. I was contacted by the same Paul but using the surname of Ryson. The whole setup is the same, deposit the money into his account and he will send my engine parts. He is still using the same Cell number as well as the supposedly office number.
    It seems he sits looking for potential client requesting parts on the internet and offers his assistance. I am sure he must have contacts in a scrap yard or works there himself as he send me pics of the damaged vehicle as well as the pic of the mileage. He had to have the keys for the vehicle to switch the ignition on to display the mileage. If anyone reading this knows of a damaged Opel Zafira, Grey in colour with the rear left side damaged and all the airbags deployed. He possibly works for you and is maybe stealing potential customers from you business.
    This is a great site and I have joined. I can recommend it to all.
    Thank again for the report.

    Roydk
