    Default vxr scam that was on e-bay

    further to the scam penfold put up on here.i e-mailed the seller and the reply was below make up your own mind.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest about my 2006 VAUXHALL VECTRA VXR with 8,700 miles.
    About the car: perfect condition, no flaws or dents, no scratches or any kind of damage, no engine problems. The interior is in pristine condition and has never been smoked in. The Vauxhall Vectra is still UK registered so you will not have to pay any custom taxes, it is HPI Clear, I have the V5 document with full service history.
    I had to move with my family in Hungary where I got a job transfer and the car is with me as well. I brought the Vauxhall Vectra with me in Budapest with the intention of driving it but when I found so many restrictions regarding right hand driving car registration so I've changed my mind and I've decided to sell the vehicle and use the company car, a left hand driving Volvo XC expenses free.
    I said to myself to sell it in UK because is still registered there and tax payed up to june 2008.
    The amount you will have to pay in order to own this 2006 VAUXHALL VECTRA VXR is £8,000 GBP with all shipping costs included in this price!
    I want to take this opportunity to assure you that this deal is 100% legitimate, the financial part of this deal will be managed by a third party (eBay), in this way both of us will be protected, eBay bank will hold the payment until you receive the car and test it.
    So if you really want it please email me as soon as possible and I will provide all details about car and transaction.

    Best wishes,
    Steve

    Plenty will fall for that one. It is amazing how naive some people can be. Always remember the golden rule, "IF IT LOOKS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, THEN IT IS"
