A similar scam on autotrader is an advert will only have an email contact.
The vehicle will be half normal price, with the seller claiming quick sale needed.
The contact details won't work, but one of the vehicle pictures will have an email contact details edited into it.
The seller, like above, will first ask for deposits, then claim the vehicle is abroad and is awaiting clearance brought customs and require ' clearance fees' or similar, to speed up its arrival, this will go on and on until you realise your not getting the vehicle :-(
In fairness, autotrader scan and remove these adverts pretty damn quickly, I never saw one stay live for more than 12 hours before removal.
But you still need to be alert.

Well spotted folks.

Yes - this scam comes up every few months. Krutly's amazing memory stated all the details exactly right - they're looking for the £1k deposits.

People ask "But surely it's obvious that it's a scam, wouldn't they have a better chance by advertising it at just below the real price?" and yes, they would, but only if they were trying to sell a genuine (possibly stolen) motor.
Once you get into an email conversation with them they will give a sob story that justifies why it all needs to be closed in the next 24 hours. 100 people may smell a rat and not respond but ten people may fall for it and think it's a bargain.

Then he says "it's yours mate, just paypal me £1k deposit cos I need to get this sorted so I can post the keys to my sister tonight before I get on a slow boat to Outer Mongolia, tomorrow". The ten people let the idea of a bargain overrule their head and wire the money.
Bosh - £10k in the bank.

The more people on this forum who understand these scams and can spread the word, the fewer people will be taken in by them in the future.

Keep it up!

L200 TROJEN


TROJAN! TROJAN! Look at the back for christ's sake! Look at the seats! Look at the V5! Look at the manual! What the hell is a Trojen? Are they the ancient warriors that we referred to as Trojers, from the magnificent land of Trojestan?

Posted by: Now we're in the meat
here is my l200 it is painted army green for shooting got a truckman back on it


This has been taken straight from a story that my now 8-year old wrote when he was four. Hold on, I'll go dig it out...
...
...
found it; "Here is my star wars sword it is big and shiny and it lights up it kills people and it is shooting at people it got a trojen back on it it is brilliant"

See? Plagiarism. I shall sue.

Posted by: And it continues
has got the 2.5 engine not the newer one that blowes up at 14000


Oh! Now this is good news! This is very good news, indeed!
It's got the 2.5 engine, not the newer, err, 2.5 engine. Hold on, how do you tell the difference between the "old" 2.5 engine and the "new" 2.5 engine?

Aha! The newer one blows up at 2pm! Got it! I know he wrote "blowes up at 14000" but it won't surprise you to know that there are a couple of typos in the ad, so I think he meant; "blows up at 14:00".
So as long as you don't get one with the newer 2.5, and then foolishly drive it between half one and half two, you should be ok.

Posted by: Bin?
bine lifted 2ins new back tyers and a new injector pump


I think I get the bit about the tyres and the injector pump, however I'm concerned that if it appears understandable then I must have missed something.
Also, in other news, the "bine" has been lifted, apparently. Bine? Bin? Maybe it's the ashtray? That would be handy, I guess. Easier to put your sweet wrappers in if it's a couple of inches higher up.

Posted by: Won't someone think of the children?
three mouths a go at a coast of £850


I'm guessing that coast is a typo and the he means cost. Easy enough.
But cost of what? "Three mouths" is a clue... Hmmm... I'm thinking that he's had three kids since buying the truck, and that they have resulted in a significant level of outgoings, up to £850 each per year, I think? It can't be £850 for all three kids per annum - that's nonsensical.
So that must be why the truck needs to go.

Posted by: Strange place for a clutch
cluch in feb seats are all good as have seat covers on


It doesn't have leather, the seats are fabric ("feb seats" is obviously a typo). What is more concerning is that the clutch appears to be installed in the fabric seats.
The good news, though, is that there are covers over both the seats and the clutch, so both are kept nice and toasty. Good truck for the winter.

Posted by: New shafts, anyone?
from new have got a new front drive shaft


Not sure why this is a selling point - I would certainly expect a new truck to have a new front drive shaft. Does that mean that from new, it had a knackered, rusty old rear drive shaft from a Ford Anglia?

Posted by: Where?
as in and outer cv boot have gone


Damn. Both the inner and outer CV boots have gone. That's gonna cost a pretty penny...

Posted by: Why would you do that?
and eser to put shaft on crack in both rear lights


Eser? Oh! "Easier"! OK, got it, so... easier to put a shaft (the shaft? your shaft) in the crack in both rear lights?
Interesting modification - I'm guessing this involves expanding the crack in both rear lights so that you can more easily place a/the/your shaft within. Not sure why, though.

Aye! Last night's epic really took it out of me

I'm just waiting for Krutters to say that he met him again in Barnstaple, that he's 6ft 6", built like the QE2, and that Krutly has given him my phone number. Think I'd have to buy his truck to save getting beaten up
