Hi. I just joined this forum to post that old Barry from the Isle of Scam is still at it on ebay.
He's selling a lovely motorhome for about £20k under it's value:https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2005-Swift-K ... 2305020465
Of course this is eye-catching. He is very proactive because when I pointed out his van didn't have an MOT (from the UK Govt website checker) he told me it had all been fixed.
He then started all the IOM, paypal, escrow scam speil.
His ebay name is now 'timesq74' with zero feedback but, as I will be reporting him to ebay, that may disappear.
The con is quite credible as the English and grammar is pretty good.
When I told him I was in the Isle of Man for the TT racing and could I come and see the motorhome he chose to ignore me!
He now uses the email address: [email protected]
I recently moved and forgot to change my location. Currently in the Isle of Man, I am offering free shipping. We can do everything through the transport company, uShip, they are taking care of everything and they can arrange a delivery to your address. If this is going to be a quick sale, I will let it go for £12,000 with the delivery charges included. If you decide to buy the motorhome let me know, as I have a lot of people inquiring about and send me an e-mail with your full details (Full name, Address, Phone number). As soon as I have your details I will pass them to the shipping company and they will start the procedures. Next step they will get in touch with you and send you an invoice for the motorhome, the tracking number to check the status of the delivery at any time and all the rest of the transaction details. After you've received the invoice you'll need to make the payment by bank transfer to the transport company (NOT to me) and they will hold the money into their bank account until you receive, inspect and agreed to keep the motorhome. For the buyer's peace of mind I've also added a 5 DAYS REFUND POLICY so if you won't like the motorhome, you'll receive a full refund, no fees or taxes deducted. If the motorhome is not as described, the transport company will transfer the money back into your bank account. If you decide to keep the motorhome after the 5 days inspection period, you will need to sign the owner transfer papers and only then I will get the money from the transport company.
