Refreshing to know that, despite being in the middle of a pandemic, the criminal class shenanigans continue unabated.
This particular little "weeze" is almost as old as the car itself, so no prizes for originality, but they are very clever in their approach.

So "caveat venditor" is as appropriate as "emptor".

Least by publishing on here it reaches a Newbury audience.

It's almost not worth advertising your car these days, it's like throwing a kitten into a pack of pitbulls. The scammers just descend like locusts. Best just insure it then burn it out, safest way.
