    Warning

    Just been sent this by a friend

    "be carefull lads theres alot of **** happening around these days, in other words anything for money, ill tell you why,me and 2 lads went out to buy a lexus is200 from slough last thursday as im from leeds. with a landline number and a pay as you go mobile number advertised, we went down as it sounded quite cheep and genuine, when we got there (please note that the lads selling the car wanted cash as they told us they dont have a bank accountfor a cheque or bankers draft)the lad told us to meet at a certain place as we parked up 3 black lads came with guns and demanded our money off us, we had a brawl and one of them fired missing my friend from inches, but there was too much shouting going on and they fled emty handed we notified the police and they told us that theyve already struck some other lads from middlesborough but also fled emty handed,the cars are advertised as trade and private and eyecathching prices as far as i know maybe more the cars advertised are a HONDA S2000 x reg, BMW m3 cab in silver 51 reg,a AUDI TT, and a lexus is200 y reg all from slough(london) what they are doing is telling people to come down with cash and then pinning them at gun point, COULD ANYONE PLEASE MAIL THIS THREAD TO OTHER CLUBS ETC as i dont want anyone to be put in my shoes as these cars are advertised above 10k alot of cash, one more thing the guy who is selling the car is called KHAN(well hes advertised as khan in the adverts on the net)when you phone him he is sweet and sounds very genuine, my advise make sure if there is a landline number someone picks it up, and the cars that these people have advertised dont exist please spread this advert all over the net cheers "

    as I said on Corsa Sport earlier today:

    Wouldnt you not think its funny that someone selling a car that is worth nearly twice the asking price wants to sell it so cheap and for cash???

    Wouldnt you also think its odd that some one selling this type of car does not have a bank account???

    Although I feel sorry for the people that this has happened to, common sence should tell you that these ads are not all that they seem :roll:

    Agreed, unfortunately some people seem to lack common sense and so are taken advantage of

    Just goes to show you how greed gets in the way of common sense.
    the people knew the cars were well under price and thought it was a bargain to good to miss.

    I always say, "If it looks too good to be true.........it f00kin well is"

    Theres nothing new about that scam, Its been going round for years. Its a good idea to post the warning as obviously people seem to forget, and as youve already mentioned, especialy when it appers to be a bargin. I cant believe someone actualy fell for it :roll:
