There's a 110 Tomb Raider that's been up on eBay in at least 4 different locatons around the country (with same set of pics!) offered for similar money. Wouldn't mind betting this one's from the same source. The Tomb Raider keeps getting removed from eBay before the auction is up, but the scammers/sellers still manages to keep relisting it!

Copy of mail back from the scammer

--------------------------------------------------

Hello,

The Land Rover is in perfect working condition.

My experienced Defender tech has fully checked out this car and gives it a special high rating has a CLEAN TITLE a great history and mechanically without any problems ever safety check and pre-delivery inspection along with a fresh servicing before I ship or deliver the vehicle.I always kept it in my garage,away from bad weather and it looks gorgeous.

The problem is that in the meanwhile I had to move with my family in Germany where I got a new job as a construction engineer.The amount you will have to pay in order to own this vehicle is £5,000 with shipping costs included!

Unfortunately I am forced to let it go.You see, due to my job I had to move to Germany and I just found a great house offer.The thing is that I have to make a deposit so I can be sure that I won't loose this great offer.On the other hand, I hope I will find someone who will treat this baby like I did.

Also, I take in consideration only those buyers who are really interested in buying the car,so be sure that I don't waste my time with endless discussions. This way, I shall be assured of your serious intentions.

I only use eBay approved payment methods for this kind of transaction.

Let me know if you are still interested.

Regards,

He,s keen! I've got a phone number now.

Email No. 2

Hello,

As I said in my first email the car is currently located in Germany and it will be shipped from here with a truck.You will get the car in front of your door.

Usually shipment takes maximum 7 days depending on your location and will be fully insured against damages,shipped in a crated container. Total price of the car including all shipping costs and insurance all the way to your place is 5,000 GBP.

The deal will go strictly according to eBay's rules and policy regarding ebay protection program - to start the official transaction, I need to know your details- ebay ID, ebay full name and shipping address- as soon as I have them I'll start the official procedure, and eBay will notify you about this. You'll also receive important guidelines + instructions from them (please go through them exactly).

Here you have my phone number : 0031616757942

Respectfully,
