THE ONLY WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THIS SCAM IS TO NOT PAY ANYTHING UNTIL YOU HAVE VIEWED AND INSPECTED THE VEHICLE YOURSELF

ALSO - DO NOT BOTHER WITH ADVERTS WHERE THE SELLER HAS OBSCURED THE VEHICLE REGISTRATION DETAILS BY PHOTO-HACKING THEM OUT. THIS IS A SIGNATURE FEATURE OF FRAUDULENT ADVERTS BEING POSTED BY ONE PARTICULAR CRIMINAL GANG.

When you compare the two photos you can actually see the vehicle registration in spite of the scammer's pathetic attempts to remove them by photo- hacking. :laugh-s:

Honest sellers don't need to photo-hack or hide their vehicle registrations.
