looking on trading today noticed this 1993 supra was only $6500, curious i emailed and asked him why it was so cheap his reply was this.


Hi Shane,
I have received your e-mail in regards of the car that I have on TradingPost.
I want thank you for your interest.
The car is still available for sale and ready to be shipped.
I want a quick sale and the price is AU$6,500.00. The vehicle is in perfect condition, like brand new. Shipping will be done via Lufthansa Air Cargo from London,United Kingdom ( where the car is located for the moment ) and it will take no more then 4 days. I will pay the shipping if you will support the money transfer taxes. When I will ship it, I will arrange for all the dutyes and that why you will not pay any customs when you will receive it and for this it will be delivered directly to your address. The car is still registered in AU. I didn't have time to register the car here in United Kingdom and I decide to sell it in AU.
Also, you have nothing to worry about this deal because it will be done in a secure way. The most important thing in all my activities is that I am affiliated at BidPay and I have a purchase protection account for AU$10,000.00 and I assume you know what this means. How you are protected by BidPay, in case we have a deal:
If you will not receive the car as I described to you, although this is not the case, BidPay will refund you with 100% from the whole amount which you paid me. Even in case that you will not receive the car, they will refund you the money back.
Let me know if this is O.K. with you, so that we can go forward with this deal! About the payment BidPay will manage in my place the financial details.
Best regards,
P.S If you are interested to go ahead with the deal, please reply with your full name and shipping address in order to contact BidPay to start the deal. They will provide you with more info regarding the deal.
Joel



how reliable do you think this guy is?

not really interested in the car but still any thoughts?

Its fake this guy was around a couple of months ago selling cars on carsales, trading post ebay etc. He even used pics from genuine importers for sale ads in his dodgy ads.

Other pics were from america ie the supras were clearly LHD and the background looked very much like the states.

Dodgy as a mofo!

Ask him some questions and see if he answers in caps lock and worse English then that already is. Most of these scams are from Nigeria and are organised. They use a basic template to start with but once they get off the template you can usually tell pretty easily if it is a scam. I am a member of www.419eater.com which is all about scam baiting which is quite fun. Although, I am just a newby there it still looks quite dodgy to me.


You could start a new gmail account (not tracable) and agree to the deal, get his bank details and report them to the fraud agency also. Smile

Lol last time when he was on drive.com.au I emailed the genuine importer and they contacted drive.com.au and had all his ads deleted Very Happy .

I got an email back from the importer thanking me for notifying them.

lol... it would cost your more that $6500 in freight alone to ship something (in 4 days) via Lufthansa!!

This scam is so, so easy:
-you send them the cash
-they dont send you the car
-bidpay refuses to refund your money.

It isn’t very creative at all compared to some of the scripts.

If you are bored at need a laugh, go and read www.419eater.com. The fella is a master and VERY creative Razz

lol! I remember that! That was an awesome read.

The above scam is pretty see through. Listing the poopra for $6500 is the first smelly thing... What a p00 eater!

Of course it could be semi legit, send money, car is reg in aust. Car gets stolen and delivered to you. You get pulled over and all the associated goodness for driving a stolen car ensues.



"I said girlfriend, don't you go buyyii'nn no supra for no Nigerian mo-fo an 'da net. And she said "don't you go gett'n yo panties in no bunch over it ya'll. I got protection from bid pay. That better than that franger that went and knocked me up wif dat rodney king fella. Who lord what a night. You remember, when the bedhead came through your wall. I tells you, wasn't the only thing commi'n that night." I said "you see, don't come to me when you got no car and weari'n sarding tims fo sandals"

YOU MUST READ IT!
It sounds like the same sorta stuff.
He's definitely 110% dodgy.
Even without reading the email pfft. I mean come on, a MKIV Supra @ $6,5000 when *cheap* SZ ones go for $15,000.

I've seen two BMW MINI Cooper S and a Mustang advertised with similar text on eBay, right down to the price of $6500. The idiot used pictures of the "Eleanor" Shelby Mustang from the movie "Gone in 60 Seconds". How obviously dodgy!!! Rolling Eyes
