This guy advertises cars and caravans that don't excist! He duplicates other peoples ad's, even from other websites and uses their photos too! When I emailed him to view a caravan (which was listed about £5000 cheaper then it was worth) my reply was:

Hello mate,
First i want you to know that the van is in very good condition inside and outside - mechanical and electrical. We've taken very good care of the caravan, it has been used few time a year just for personal purposes not for business. It's no catch here. The price is real. The main reason why we are selling the van is that we've moved house to Madrid, Spain, so i will handle the transaction from here as the van is stored in a warehouse in Marlow,Buckinghamshire and it will be shipped from there on my behalf. The full price is 4,600 pounds with shipping costs included. The transaction will be done through eBay for our own protection. Your funds will be 100% insured by eBay and I will be sure that I will receive the payment, this way both of us will start the deal with good faith so we can take it to a smooth end. After the payment is cleared and confirmed by eBay you will have the van delivered at your door in 3-5 days. You will have 10 days from the time you receive the van to inspect it and decide if you want to keep the van or not. Once the van arrives if you find it different than i described it you will be refunded by eBay and you won't lose nothing. If you are interested in purchasing it please provide me your full name and shipping address so I can initiate the deal through eBay.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
kind regards,Peter

Now I'm not an idiot and have replied giving him a piece of my mind! But hopefully this will stop others falling into these scams! Can't remember what his ID was as ebay have removed it, but he had advertised as a classified ad in Marlow, Buckinghamshire.
