    http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?car_id=190024982


    Hi,

    Thank you for your interest in purchasing my car.It is a twin turbo.I have worked in USA for the past 6 months and I purchased the car there.My company wanted me back home, so currently I'm in UK.
    I didn't bring it home with me because the car's steering wheel is on the left side, and so it's difficult driving it around the UK.The vehicle is in good condition, has no technical damage at all, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects, no smoking, remaining warranty
    available.It's fun and robust to drive. Technical inspection and emissions testing is
    passed and stamped as well.It has title of ownership, cleared of any obligations or fees and comes with all the documents you need to register it.The car is now located at the AutoTrader.com warehouse in Denver, Colorado.The car will be shipped and insured by AutoTrader.com and Square Trade.AutoTrader.com will act as a 3rd party for our transaction.
    You will not have to pay additional taxes for this.To be able to receive or pick up the car you'll have to make a $2,900.00 deposit. After you inspect the car if anything seems wrong you'll be
    able to receive a refund from AutoTrader.com.Please send me your full name and shipping address to forward them to AutoTrader.com.They will contact you with all the information you need.Thanks for your interest, please feel free to email me any questions or concerns you may have.


    Respectfully regards



    and one thing i notice.all the emails are to nice..the replies i mean..lol american are not that nice..haha

    Don't bid on this car without seeing a picture of a Vin Tag and scan of the title and comparing to a carfax report for the same Vin. These pictures were stolen from our web site and the car pictured is located here in Seattle with a customer of ours. I'm pretty certain it is a scam, as if this description isn't a big enough clue:
    "It is the 3000 2way twin turbo which means top of the line."

    Thanks for the compliment on our cars.

    I used to report these cars when the scams first started appearing, but now you could hire 100 people and they wouldn't be able to keep up. I'm always amazed how many scams there are across every kind of car. Sad thing is we get calls from people like the call I took on MC's QS yesterday when the bidding started and they offered $8K for it. I advised them that this car was going to sell for a bit more than that and they may want to use caution if they find one priced pointed at such a price

    Well the scammers have stepped it up a bit. They actually took all our pictures and cropped off the watermarks and made a web site that they use to redirect people to off the ebay and other scam ads. Pretty unbelievable that they went to this much work!

    Sorry for the dealy,
    Now I live in Ireland, Dublin and the car is here because I tried to register it here and I couldn't as it has the steering wheel on the left side and here I need a car with a steering wheel on the right side. I hope that you understand my situation. So if you are really interested to buy the car please e-mail me and let me know and we can start the deal.
    Thank you for understanding,
    Roberto,

    Hello,
    First of all I want to tell you that the car is still available and the price includes all the shipping costs and insurance, so you wont have to pay any extra charges. The car looks like new, it has never been scratched or wrecked. It will come with a clear title, bill of sale signed by me as well and all the papers (including the original manuals and keys) that you will need to register it under your name. I'm selling it at a low price because I've just moved to Dublin, Ireland and I can't drive it here because cars from here are with the steering wheel on right,and this it have the steering wheel on left so for me this car is useless. I hope that you will understand my situation. E-mail me back if you are interested.
    Warm regards!

    I used to report the ones on buysell, and occasionally screw with the "sellers" and waste bunches of their time, but it just got to be too much work...
    Makes me sad that these things work on some people.
    The scammers are so thick that they claim the vehicle is in place "X" (Toronto in this case) but expect you to be comfortable associating a cell phone number based out of Kansas with that.
