    Default Scammers - they want *******

    Hi, Got a car I'm selling - its a bit of a quirky one so I've put it on Ebay as a classified fixed price and also on Autotrader - its a car that is in A1 condition, low miles 12 months tax and Mot.
    All I am getting is emails from people wanting to buy the car, pay me 2 grand more than I am asking for and asking me to send them all my bank, paypal account details and any passwords I might have. What an absolute pain in the arse.
    I googled one of the email addresses and they have been sending these emails out to sellers for the last 2 months - it has been reported to Autotrader several times but they continue to pass the details through to the seller

    I disagree with the title of your thread. Let's presume the asterisks are in place of something unpleasant, such as "a kick in the backside". What scammer wants a kick in the backside? I bet none of the dodgy emails you've received also contain the request from the scammer asking you to kick them in the backside.
