A friend of mine selling his XK120OTS was recently a ‘victim’ of this
scam. He had to pull the advert to avoid confusion. This is just another
in
the seeming endless chain of frauds that continue to plague the internet
markets. These bottom dwelling scum pull pictures and descriptions from
adverts and try to grab a few dollars from anyone so stupid as to believe
that such a vehicle could be had for 9000 Euro, $8000 or whatever. While I
hold these criminals in contempt, I would have little pity on anyone
falling
for such an obvious scam.

I was looking at the XK120 interior kit on ebay that someone had sent an
email, when I
saw 2 more ebay sales which I don’t believe. Look at item # 7940182102,
a

2002
BMW M3 convertible with 20,000 miles, how can the seller advertise it as
a

“buy it now of $8,000”? This same person has another M3, item #
7940182308

at
the same price. The mileage is not listed on the second one.

This can not be true… any help as to what the scam is?

Thanks,

Neil
