Dear

Thanks for using PayPal.
The seller has requested the payment through PayPal and we offered to cover all the risks for you and the seller.
It is our responsibility to inform Buyers about our Sellers. You are dealing with a verified PayPal member, protected by our PayPal services such as insurance and dispute resolution, and you may buy and sell with confidence in all eBay transactions with this seller.

You should proceed accordingly to complete the transaction in a safe manner.

The following is a notice from PayPal Trust & Safety Department regarding:


Item Title - BMW 3 SERIES 330d SE 2dr Auto 3.0
Item Number - 141170452889
Item Price - £3,750.00


Buy safely using eBay's Buyer Protection Program
This vehicle is eligible for up to £10,000 in Buyer Protection when your transaction is completed through PayPal
It may take a few moments for this transaction to appear in your account.
For any questions contact PayPal Live Support by clicking here

Complete the transaction in 5 easy, secure and safe steps!
1. eBay accepts the transaction and offers purchase protection to the buyer (if the transaction is declined, no further action is required from either the buyer or the seller);
2. All information received will be processed by PayPal under the direct review of eBay Inc.
3. The Buyer follows instructions and sends the payment to the assigned PayPal representative bank account.
After the payment is cleared and verified by PayPal under the review of eBay Inc, it will be secured into a non-interest bearing trust account. Payment being secured, the Seller is notified by PayPal to deliver the vehicle to the Buyer. The Seller has 5 (five) business days to start the deliver procedure. The seller must deliver the vehicle for inspection along with the certificate of title, signed Bill of sale in the Buyer's name, all keys and all ownership documents. The vehicle must be delivered along with all documentation requested by the Buyer in order to allow him to change the registration in his name as soon as he will decide to accept it after the inspection period will be over.
If no delivery procedure is started, a full refund is immediately sent to the Buyer.
As soon as the delivery procedure will start, the Buyer should wait for the vehicle and documentation to be delivered.
4. After the inspection period is over, the Buyer must contact PayPal with the result of the inspection of the vehicle.
The Buyer receives the vehicle and has 5-7 (five-seven) business days to inspect it. The inspection period will not begin until PayPal has confirmed delivery of the vehicle by either Buyer’s or shipper’s notification.
5. If he refuses it a full refund is immediately sent to the Buyer if the reason that determined the Buyer not to keep the vehicle is strictly related to the vehicle's condition i.e (different from what the seller has advertised, described and agreed to sell to you).
The Seller will have the obligation to make all necessary arrangements in order to take the vehicle from Buyer’s possession in maximum 3 (three) business days.
If the vehicle and documentation are as advertised, described and agreed, the Buyer should accept it. If the Buyer accepts the vehicle, the payment will be sent to the Seller within 3 (three) business days.

How to proceed from this moment?
The conventional method of transferring funds to a PayPal member cannot be used due to the large amount that must be paid.
Payment must be submitted via bank transfer to the PayPal representative bank account assigned for this transaction. PayPal will secure the payment until the Buyer receives, inspects and accepts the vehicle. Or, if it is the case, PayPal will refund the payment to the Buyer.

Protecting the security of your payment is our primary concern.

hI i just got scammed by the same person evelyn in buying a camper van

what should i do?
#194454 by TerranceBoyce Tue Mar 18, 2014 7:42 am
Welcome to Scamwarners victim22 and regret to hear that you got scammed.

People must realise that all ad sites are crawling with scams and scammers. The problem is that if you're looking for a bargain, scammers can undercut everyone else so that you're leading yourself straight in to the shark's mouth.

I just cover one ad site and the scammers usually post up to about 100 scam adverts a night and I have recently begun covering camper vans, but there are so many I can never spot them all. I post details in another part of the forum.

I wouldn't use an ad site even though I know what to watch out for and how to avoid getting scammed. It would just be too annoying have to wade through all the scams to find what I'm looking for.

It's most unlikely that you'll get your money back but you should follow the advice that BW gave to jojoburke.

CAR ADVERTS - If a car seller mentions escrow - he's scamming you Never ever for any reason pay anything until you have seen and inspected the vehicle

#206418 by Bryon Williams Tue Jun 17, 2014 8:36 pm
^^^^ The problem is people are not following Ebay and Paypal policies.

You will not have protection under ebay if you take take the transaction off ebay.

All communication needs to made with Ebay messaging system. Payment must be made through Ebay. Not through an email off the site.

Please read Ebay's FAQ/
