3. Hi,

All the manuals and the original documents are in English.
It is made for US market and has US specs on it (speedometer in miles).
The buyer will receive this along with all papers and recipts that he needs to register it in his name.
I have a good reason for this low price. I'm located in LONDON UK with my son who will suffer a neck operation and the doctors did some preasures on my head. I've decided to sell it in US at a price that will find a buyer in a few days .



The finacial part of this deal will be manage by SquareTrade.

They are acting like a third party in this deal. Since this deal will be made using a THIRD PARTY to help us closing this deal, I prefer honnest buyers.
I accept a first deposit for 3,000$ US and balance for 2,600$ US in 10 days.


Anyway,if you want more details about this deal, please reply with the following informations:
-Your full name;
-Your shipping address;

I will look for your email, so that we can move forward with this deal!

Regards

About our deal I assume we are 2 mature persons who want to make a fair deal.I understand you are a little concerned from this point of view but this is not the case.I am a very good seller with a very good rating and my interest is to have very good deals so i can have in the future good deals.If i will make with you a good deal,you will recommend me ,maybe ,to your friends or to other persons.For me it is very important to have permanent deals ,any negative deal will not make good to me.
I have a good reason for this low price. I'm located in LONDON UK with my son who will suffer a neck operation and the doctors did some preasures on my head. I've decided to sell it in US at a price that will find a buyer in a few days .

Like you saw i accept that first deposi for 3000$ US.But if you want you can make it from your name and address to WATH NAME DO YOU WANT HERE IN UK(EG:YOUR WIFE'S NAME ,FATHER'S NAME,GRANDFATHER'S NAME OR WATH NAME DO YOU WANT)
Square Trade agent from UK just need to check your deposit and send me a notification that all is done and i will start your shipping.

After you will receive the car you need to send me rest for 2600$ US directly to my name and call to a WU agent and change that receiver name for i can pick up and first deposit for 3000$ US!


As soon as i have your full name and also your full shipping address I will contact SQUARE TRADE and they will give you step by step details on how to proceed with the deal and to make the payment.


Wait your decision a.s.a.p.

Regards

I just thought it was funny to see how many fraud sellers are out these days, the car sites need to start something which verifies that the owner is who he says he is. And that the car is indeed his own and is serious


Thanks, if you read it..........Preston \m/

I knew that they were too good to be true... I checked one out and got the same story, but his son needed a kidney transplant this time. Perhaps he's building a bionic son. Better than he was before. Better . . . stronger . . . faster. <_<

Also, welcome to the forums. h34r:

my son got scammed by one of these .

i begged him not to do it, but you can't tell 20 yr olds shit .

i told him there is NO 30k supra for sale for 9,000
the only reason this scam will work is
A. you have the money in your pocket
B. you want a supra more than anything in the world
C. you are young


i told him the scam could not work on me because
A. i don't have 10k lying around
B. i have a supra
C. with age comes some wizdom

he agreed with my final answer and was not going to get involved ..

yeah right..... after a fews days of not hearing from him i kinda guessed what happend .
he western unioned $3,000 to some "chick " in italy .
since i am not the idiot that got scammed there is little i can do as far as the FBI or whatever goes and he just won't do anything about it because he's too embarrassed , which is exactly why these scams keep going on ..

the girl insisted that the emissions were so tough in italy that she had to get rid of the car ... again i told the kid ...think about that will you ?
do you think italy has emissions that are tougher than US emissons ?

NJ was mentioned by this scam also.

Have fun.

That's why it's always better to physically go look at the car and pick it up yourself.

Also notice that noone ever says, "I'm selling a 2002 Dodge Caravan for $7,000 but it's located in London. My son is getting his leg amputated"

Hey Mettalluthier(?).

The first email I read, that was the same guy I've email to when I saw his Supra on sale in autotrader.com.

He email me the same ol sh*t. Then in my 2nd email, I told that punk that I don't have the money now and he replied back to me saying "when you have the money, you can let me know".

At that moment, I almost emailed back to him and say something like "If I had the money, I would've gotten a BETTER Supra and I would have come kick your little frad punk azz in NJ".

its funny, you can easily tell which ones are scams, sometimes i scan ebaymotors.com and you can see the real deals vs. the scams...i emailed one guy cause he said the car was nj ...near where i live... so i asked if i could go look at it...he was sellin at 9g's, he told me i couldnt because he just shipped it to the uk and i wouldnt be able to see it, but he had pics...he never got a cent and he never got another email from me...some things are too good to be true....dont fall for them and just be smart...and yea make sure you can take a look at the car in person before making a purchase.

If I remember correctly, Square Trade is a shipping company that delivers the item to you, and expects C.O.D. So normally it would be a good deal to use them, but these scammers seem to want the money up front, and then they'll "ship" it. I have to admit, I would be interested in buying one for that price. I guess I'll just stick with the MKIII afterall.
