Scam warning!

Borrow from the VVOC forum:

So far the Escort Owners forum, Mk1 Astra forum, the Mantra forum and the Land Rover forum have all been taken for thousands so far so I thought we'd better keep an eye out in case he appears on here or any other forum. The standard patter is that he's having a clearout of bits, all very cheap, must go quickly but NO collection, delivery only and payment through Paypal only. He also offers no pictures of the items either and once payements recieved the money and him disappears from the forum. You have been warned!

His posts are something like this:

right, here goes, ive got a full garage of escort mk3/4/5/5b and 6 bits that ive collected over 7 years of building escorts and now ive got o get rid of the lot so i can re-build my landrover V8
most of the stuff ive got is performance but ive also got a lot of standard stuff from hi spec cars (XR/RS/Ghia)
interior, exterior, wheels, engine parts, exhaust parts and systems, brales, lights, and possibly enough little bits in there to re-stock ford!
ive also got a few saph cossy bits too, just the odds and sods really.

all postage is cheap and parts are even cheaper.
i only accept paypal, sorry but theres a few bits i need to get off ebay for the landy so its a lot easier that way.

any more info if you need parts, please email me at [email protected]
cheers,
Martin

Please guys, don't fall for it, and pass it around other forums too, unfortunately, if it looks to good to be true, it probably is!


So be careful everyone!
