    Sounds like a scam to me. There is a dealer offer section of eBay, but they only do standard cars. The website looks ok though, and nothing on google to say its a scam. Maybe email autotrader and ask

    I haven't had that one - but I did put a car on just before Christmas and was inundated with scam emails, from people in Nigeria,others living miles away in the UK and wanting to send an agent to collect it - paying me more than I was asking for, etc - I complained to Autotrader as they were passing these messages on through their messaging service - but they didn't want to know. Be careful or get back to AT and ask if it is a genuine thing.

    Hi am a Nigerian Prince,

    I am visiting your country soon and need a car to use and have noticed you are selling yours.
    I can offer you cash but because of the rules governing transactions in my country you would need to send me £100,000 via bank transfer to confirm who you are and that this transaction is legitimate. I will of cause refund your £100,000 and add on the £5500 for your car plus a bonus of £2000 for helping me out.

    I have always loved Signums since seeing them on vectra-c.com which I visit everyday.

    Please pm me with your bank details

    PS: does anyone know how to fix a rattle sound I have when I dip my clutch on my Vectra C? I haven't got a lot of money to fix it until I get the cash from Soulman

    My mate sold his ML on ebay and had some fella from Uganda call and offer him just under the asking price, alarm bells rang straight away. My mate just said I only want cash and a couple of days later some agent fella from London came and collected the car from his work and paid in cash, he even agreed to go to the bank to pay the money in with him as he was sure it was a scam but wasn't this time. Restored the faith! Was great with this agent fella as he didn't care what was wrong just said heres the cash and got off.
