    Sound dodgy? phonecall for my car for sale..

    I just had a weird phonecall about my rover.

    it was a company that apparently sells ur car for you, but you give them £79.95 then when they sell it, they give you £70 back...

    now im confused, ive never signed up for this company, they just phoned me, not making it very clear what they do/charge.

    the number is 0208 447 4011

    the only thing ive found with that number on google is "listlab"

    so, does this sound dodgy,

    the guy started asking questions on the first call about if the exterior and interior is sound and then asked if it was mechanically sound then he dissapeared, so i called them back, and had a few questions myself, both times though i missed the company name.

    sounds like they are phishing or something, but it could just be my concience.

    anyone else ever had anything like this? what is it, im still confused.

    Yes, there's been posts before.

    Complete con, they take your money and never even try to sell it.

    Stear clear, stick with the tried and tested methods.

    yea these are the same losers/thunderc***s that rang me etc.. if you do a search("car agencies") or similar, you'll see.. they had the nerve to swear at me on the phone, hassle me constantly, and then hang up on me..

    until i emailed their head office giving them times of the calls and calling their sales staff rude things, made me feel better and thats the last time i heard from them :P

    my argument was, the only place ive advertised it is auto trader.. so why the hell would someone go onto autotrader, take a look at my car with two phone numbers on and an email, then totally ignore that and go through you.. bollarx.. they had no answer for that.

    They need beating with a wet kipper

    I had the same conversation when selling my astra which was quite funny as it was totally modified to553rs
