Car-Sales-Network Fraud in London

I have responded on a advertised. A South African registered car (2005 audi) on Auto that an individual was selling, Albert Radinng, he is from South Africa and move to London UK ,he mentioned that that taxes are too
high to register this car in the UK and that he need to sell it as he explained to me for R50000,and he will pay all shipping fees ,he said that because of fraud and all we need to do this transaction via a company that do the importing and exporting and shipping of cars they call them self's Car Sales Network . the company registration Company No. 03089194 After requesting the licence disc of the car and researching the website, I realised that this was a scam. Then I found the same article on this website. I just want to warn everybody. We are also going to report this to SAPS and Auto Trader. Have a blessed day.

    Hey Guys, Auto Trader won't take responsibility for any fraud, as specified in their terms & conditions. And sadly, our South African Police services is not the best. They also make use of an unknown providers if you look at the e-mail addresses they use. Isn't it possible to reverse the payments at your banking facility? Follow this url to submit the scams. Best of luck.

    Guys, thanks for the information. I was interested in a quad the guy was advertising on (Guess where)...Autotrader. Just checked and it has been removed but the guy had the audacity to email me back. Any police department busy investigating this syndicate?

    Busy with the same story only difference is that it is a Bike. What happened after you guys paid in the cash?

    Same thing. I wanted to buy a Quad bike that was advertised on auto trader. The guy emailed me and told me that he lived in SA but moved to the UK with his wife and kids.Tobias Hermann, He also told us that we have to pay the money through car sales network That the seller is going to pay the shipping ect. We realised it was a scam because we came accross the actual website of car sales network.

    I'm busy with the same scam. Exact same thing just a different name. Has Auto Trader come back to you on this at all? I reported it to them as well but no feedback. Someone in SA is placing these ads and on the one I'm interested in, a local CPT fax number was listed. Surely Auto Trader staff took pics of the vehicles and have details of the who placed the ad? We need to fuck these guys up!
