Just a quick heads up for anyone thinking of buying a second hand car to be careful of a scam that happened to my brother recently.
Basically someone auctioned a 2nd hand vehicle on ebay and my brother won it.
He Hpi checked it and it seemed ok.
He went to collect it from a seemingly "legitimate" seller who had a premesis and paid cash.
Basically the seller said he didn't keep the log book on site for security reasons etc
The seller said he would post the v5 green slip to my brother.
My brother paid and drove the vehicle home.
1 week later the v5 hadn't arrived so my brother started chasing it up.
Basically the seller didn't own any of the vehicles on his forecourt and had hired them all!!!!!
My brother had bought a hired car! He is one of many!
He has just lost the car and the police and ebay are investigating.
can't believe it!
