    URGENT NEED ADVICE AND HELP

    I am buying a set of wheels:

    The lad wants me to do bank transfer only!! Because he has been well messed about already, he will deliver on Sunday afternoon if the money is done today.

    I have his full name, bank details, address, telephone number, mobile number, and he is selling a lot on ebay including baby stuff (his wife) as well as car stuff.

    Anything I can do to make further checks?? I need to do this in the hour! Would you take the risk as it is £500

    Cheers

    Think you have covered most of it there mate. Those contact numbers are they for home and work? guess it would be better to have all of them.

    Apart from that im not sure what else. What his feedback like on ebay?

    Hopefully the 100% feedback speaks for itself.

    Check out his address/telephone no. here - assuming he's not ex-directory.

    If you've not done so already give him a ring to check the no's are legit.

    99.9% of prople are OK, it's just the 0.1% we hear about

    he said he has a small advert in performance VW in the specialist listings, I have just checked and he does and the info tallys up with what he has given.

    bit of a worry though and have I any back up from the BACS?

    Is this on Ebay?? imiagine selling your wife on Ebay

    It's a riskyou take mat if he's deliverign them personally ask him if he'd accept a deposit say £150 o something and you'll pay the rest on delivery, that way he's got some guarantee you'll pay and that way you dont lose the full £500

    Hope thats of some use mate
