    Might be real...but lack of phone number is a bit fishy

    Scam, SCAM, SCAMSCAM


    If that car's real and available at that price EVERY dealer in the country would write a cheque out in a heartbeat!


    PS, Did I mention that it's probably a scam?

    IMO all Pistonheads adverts without phone numbers are scams, and there are LOADS of them.

    It worries me that some people actually fall for ads like this - This is the sellers response to enquiries.

    The 1996 Ferrari F355 Spider is still available for 26.500 Gbp. It's in
    excellent overall condition, accident free, no scratches. It's also free of
    any bank liabilities. I moved to Canada recently and the car is here with me
    as well, but the transport back is already set. The car is still registered
    in the UK. I signed with a local transport company to use their services.
    They will also offer us third party protection. How it works: they secure
    your money in their trustee bank account held in the UK until you receive
    and inspect the merchandise. I signed for a 5-day inspection period. In this
    period you can test the car and if you are not pleased with it, your money
    will be returned to your account and they will deliver it back to me, free
    of charge for you, but I am 100% confident that you will be pleased with the
    car. They are also specialized in vehicle transactions and will provide full
    needed logistic and legal support upon our deal. The car is on their
    warehouse already. I know that the scenario may seem strange but I can
    assure that this is a genuine sale. I hope you understand and I am waiting
    for your reply if you decide to go forward.

    Thank you,
    Mark

    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/278201.htm

    And another, using the photos of a car advertised a few months ago which I recognise because I almost bought it..

    Can Pistonheads not do something about these people?
