This guy advertises cars at ridiculous prices  eg in Junkmail and then demands payment before delivery. Email correspondence follows:

    Yea this is obviously a scam, I took the guy on directly when I received the same reply from 2 different JunkMail adds... Remember the first rule about safe online shopping: If it seems to good to be true it probably is not true. Here follows the mail I got back as a response.... Hello, Thank you for your interest. I am selling the bike so cheap because I am in United Kingdom with my new job and I just finished a divorce. I will stay here for 3 years so this is the reason why I want to sell the bike. I am a Verified Seller so the transaction will be done through eBay so we can both be protected. If you are ready for this purchase, I need to know your full name and address for delivery because as soon as I have them I will start the official procedure and eBay will notify you about this. eBay will send you an Invoice with all the info you need to complete the transaction. Also a 10 days refund policy will be included so if you will not like the bike or if something will be wrong you will receive your money back in the same day without any charges from your side. Thank you Regards, Daniel Jacobs Construction Manager 44 1234 705033 United Kingdom

    Hi This guy keeps on putting ads up and when you say you are interested he sends you exactly the same response he sent you for other ads. He is a scam! BEWARE! Where can you report him so that nobody else gets caught if you already reported him on the website he keeps on advertising on?

    Thanks I nearly got caught by this person trying to sell me a Mercedes. Why haven't the cops got this person?

    This person was trying to scam me by selling a caravan. We were busy corresponding when we thought of just checking first. Thank you for loading it and making us aware.
