Hhmmmm, looks good, like you say something odd, expected starship mileage but no. Someone close needs go look and buy it if as good as it appears.

Probably another add masquerade as legitimate, but when you enquire a substantial remote deposit is required

If it looks to good to be true it usually is...

Go and have a look at it in the flesh. See if it's real. Question

It’s a scam.... I found a really cheap Audi A5 on eBay a little while ago, all looked legit, it was from a garage had a website and everything. I tired to call and they wouldnt answer, then told to communicate via text.

Then they tried to get a holding deposit as ‘so many people were interested’ just didn’t add up.

As my old Nan used to say.... if it looks too good to be true, then it is too good to be true.

Advert has now been removed, perhaps someone reported it to eBay.

Standard is a great story about sending the money to paypal, who will hold it until the car is delivered and you are happy, which is of course total crap. Happens a lot at the moment but ebay are getting better and better at stopping it. Lots of scammers are using Italian bank accounts as they are easy to get and the authorities don't want to help bust the scammers much at all......
