First I want to thank you for question about the car. The car is in perfect condition, with no scratches on it, no damage. It have all the papers and document and I am also the first owner. The price is MR 19,500 including the shipping to your address. The car is registered in Malaysia on my name and address but currently I am located in Milan, Italy because I just finished the divorce with my husband and i have moved here to my parents home. The payment will be made through eBay and only after you will receive the car, I will receive the payment.
If you are interested in buying it please provide me your full name and address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
I will wait your answer (if you are interested to buy) very soon
Thank you

The car is at the shipping company in Beseri, Malaysia sealed and ready for shipping. I have a contract with eBay so this deal must go through them. According with eBay you have 5 days from the time you receive the car to inspect it and decide if you want to keep it or not.
Here is how it will work:
First of all I will need the following details from you: full name and full shipping address. After I will receive the details from you, I will forward them to eBay. After they will process your info, they will send us both invoices. They will send you the details on how to make a refundable payment. Bay will contact me and I will ship the car to you. After you receive the car you will have 5 days to test, verify and do whatever you want with the car. If you will buy it, then I will receive the payment details from eBay so that I can pick up the money.
If you will decide that you will not buy the car, eBay will refund the money and I will have the shipping company come pick up my car. If you wish to make the transaction, please send me the necessary info so that we can proceed. I look forward to hear from you.
Thank you

What a lame scam! Those who fallen on these scams must be either too greedy or too naive. If the ads are not posted on Ebay and bidded thru Ebay, what does Ebay has anything got to do with it? Which Seller will be so stupid to ship a car to a Buyer and letting him "test" for 5 days before money is paid to him? The scam is just too lame.

theres another one

1st scenario..

Sorry for this late reply but I have been overwhelmed by the number of emails I got from interested buyers after listing the car on Gumtree.The car is in excellent condition both inside and out (including engine). I am the registered keeper and there is no outstanding finance on the car,also the car comes with a full service history.
The full price is13500 aud with shipping cost included.I almost had the car sold but the buyer changed his mind last minute due to financial reasons (loan rejected by his bank).
I want this transaction to be as smooth as possible as I am caught in the middle of some very important events and I have very few time at my disposal.
I am currently in England so I prefer closing the transaction through eBay for more safety.
The car is sent at a local warehouse in Ipswich,Queensland and from there will be delivered.You will have 5 days inspection period, while you will be able to see and test the car before buying it so let me know if you are still interested so I can give you more details.



The transaction is very simple:
1.You send me your details(full name and shipping address and your eBay user name)
2.I will contact eBay and start the transaction through eBay Purchase Protection Program
3.You will receive the payment invoice from eBay
4.You make the payment in an eBay managed bank account
5.After the payment is sent to and confirmed by eBay i will start the shipping and send you the car.
6.After you will receive the car you will have 5 days for inspection and if for any reason you don't like the car i will refund your money and pay for the shipping back.(but i am 100% sure that you will love the car because the car is a dream car).
7. eBay will release the money to the me only in the case you are satisfied and accept the car.

As you can see, you will receive the car BEFORE any money is released to me.These are my terms so if you agree with them and want to proceed with the transaction please reply with your details so we can
start the transaction through eBay.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.


what about the other way round?? you are the seller now..

2nd scenario

Thanks for the mail, i will like to know the present condition of the car and how much you are willing to sell it for me, coz i am buying this for Dad and i am a petroleum engineer currently on a rig offshore i really want this to be a surprise gift for my Dad so i wont let him know anything about this until it gets delivered to him , i am sure he will be more than happy with it.I can only pay with paypal here because i dont have access to my bank account online here as i dont have internet banking, but i can pay from my paypal account, as i have my bank a/c attached to it, i will need you to give me your paypal email address so i can make the payments asap and pls if you dont have paypal account yet, it is very easy to set up, go to www.paypal.com.au and get it set up , after you have set it up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with paypal so as to put the money through.
Andrew
PS:Pick up agent will come for the pick up as soon as i have made the payments, i would have loved to talk to you on phone but i am a petroleum engineer I work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to bad weather, we can only communicate with our base for now.
Thanks
