Hi I just wanted to say someone has got in touch with me re an Audi from Finland. I looked into it and googeld the signature that you have at the bottom of the email and it brought this site up.

here is the email. its also been taken down from AT
Hi,

I am the one selling the 2011 AUDI Q7 3.0 TDI 245 Quattro S Line on Autotrader.
I want to confirm that it is still for sale. The car is HPI clear and it is in excellent condition ( interior, exterior and mechanical).It has done 31,000 miles so far.
I am a non-smoker so it has never been smoked in and it had no accidents.
I live in Lieksa, Finland. I used to work for 3 years in the UK as an engineer. Now that my contract over there expired i moved back to Finland. I wanted to keep the car so i took it with me.
I realized that registering it here is quite expensive and also driving it could be a hassle. So i decided to sell it back there. I tried the local market here but i had no interest in it as it is RHD and due to the high fees needed to register it.
The price i am looking to get for it is 8000 Pounds, shipping fees included.

Due to the fact that my job takes almost all of my time and i don`t spend to much time at home, i asked an international company to take care of the sale and act as a third party for this transaction.
Or you can come here and buy it. Lieska (where i am) is at 340km from Jyväskylä airport.
Please tell me if you wish to proceed and how.


Kind Regards,

Welcome to Scamwarners audiscammerfinland and thanks for taking the trouble to post your experience and that we may have helped confirm your suspicions.

This is a very prolific gang of fraudsters who are well organised and operate across many ad sites and not just ones selling motor vehicles. They have hacked and phished around 600 car dealer sites on Autotrader UK alone and they also post adverts as private sellers and you can imagine that they will have posted many tens of thousands of fraudulent adverts perhaps running in to six figures over that period.

If their initial offer hooks you their follow up can appear quite professional and tempting and to make it more difficult to Google warnings they frequently change details. Any money they steal is pure profit because once you've paid the money is gone and can't be recovered.
