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
