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

A REGULARLY RECURRING FRAUDULENT ADVERT

(The scammer has now photo-hacked the vehicle registration number from the most recent photos, hoping to make it easier to snare victims. There are now so many of these adverts appearing on ad sites that all such 'photo-hacked' adverts should be treated with extreme caution otherwise you'll lose your money.)

CAN'T SEE THE VEHICLE REGISTRATION ? - DON'T BUY

Hi,

I am the one selling the 2013 BMW 1 SERIES 116d 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),FSH with main dealer.It has done 13,000 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 6000 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,
