As i said, the transaction will be done by the shipping company, due to the fact i'm overseas and I can not meet with you in person. They will be the 3rd, objective party involved in the transaction. This way you will actually pay for the camper van after you will receive and test it, because CDS-Express will hold the funds in an Escrow and release it to me only after you accept and confirm the delivery.

You will have 10 days to test , decide and accept the buy. If you decide to take it you will have to contact them and confirm that, so they can release the money to me. If you won't like it you will have to ship it back to me within the 10 days and they will refund you. The shipping back will be done on my own expense, but I am sure this will not be the case.

If you decide to buy the camper van,please include the following information in your next email.
-Full Name;
-Shipping Address (postal code,full address)
-Phone Number

Please get back to me at your earliest convenience

THEN THE SHIPPING COMPANY WILL SEND AN EMAIL LIKE THIS :

Hi,
I was almost scammed by the same person trying to buy this camper van, they used the email addresses [email protected] and [email protected].

They direct you to a vehicle distribution company, in my case www.TD-distribution.org but is you type the company name into www.whois.com you learn that the company is a matter of days old and was set up in Florida.

Hi,
First of all, I want to thank you for your interest in my camper van : 2009 VW T5 Camper van 1.9 TDi.This camper is in excellent working conditions,NO accidents, slightly used, and in 100% working and looking conditions,ONLY 28,209 miles, is always garaged and rarely used and it has HPI clear.It has full service history.Tax until Dec 2014 and MOT until May 2015. The final price that I will accept for this vehicle is £9,450 (including shipping and handling).
My husband died 3 months ago, and this camper brings me bad memories, and that's the reason that I want to sell it. I along with my daughter decided to sell the house and we moved to my sister in Stockholm,Sweden.The camper van is already at Shipping Company-www.TD-Distribution.org (ready for delivery) in Cheshire.
The transaction will be done by the shipping company TD-Distribution, due to the fact i'm overseas and I can not meet with you in person.I will wait your answer(if you are interested to buy) very soon.
