    Hi guys,

    So after some searching I have had the chance to buy a 240z.
    Was wondering if anyone had come across this car before whilst browsing (the listing has been removed from eBay):
    - It is located in Wick, Scotland
    - Silver 1972 RHD 240z
    - Seller located in Barcelona

    Seller wants to arrange payment via OFX and gives a 7 day inspection period once the car is delivered (as can’t go to Scotland to view). If not as described, then can return vehicle at his expense.

    Seller has sent me a photo of the V5c and his ID with a selfie and I ran the plate through the gov.uk site to verify the car. Also sent me some pics of the car.

    If any of you have any info on this car that would be great.
    Thanks!

    This car sold on ebay for £23k a while back. How much is he asking? First thought is a SCAM!

    the car sold on ebay for £23.5k which in my opinion was well overpriced. It is a uk car though. How much is he asking for it? The whole thing sounds like a scam to me. I've seen this type of scam used many times.

    FYI, I found this profile on Twitter (assuming people use it). It might be of use to any newbies like me https://twitter.com/ebay_antiscam?s=21 (@eBay_antiscam)

    They out scammers for classic cars, the person’s email that tried scamming me is listed on there (theta2840@gmail.com).

    Thanks again all.
