It’s too cheap isn’t it? Reg not visible. Seller’s profile says they live in Turkey. Add says don’t contact seller, instead contact his mother’s email which suggests she is called Johnnie Cole. I think I’ll pass. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

That and the fact his Mum is called Johnnie Cole. Although I question that he's even related to Johnnie Cole given that he, the son, is called Zaur Mikaylov... Whistle Stuart

Very similar to all the scams on Ebay, too cheap, very little info and you can only contact them via a dodgy email address, avoid it.

These are all from the same seller

It's about time eBay had to take some responsibility for what they allow to be listed.

The same with the fake CE marked crap from China!

They won't, same as Amazon, because they make too much money........CnTus

Far worse than the dodgy market sellers of old that at least Trading Standards had half a chance of catching

I don't know about you guys but I'm always reporting Ebay scam listings. Their other items are always VW T5's, caravans, motorhomes, digging equipment and a mix of classic cars. It must pay as they wouldn't be so persistent. Very sad to think that people are paying deposits for what looks like something that's too good to be true.

There is one sure fire way of forcing the seller to willingly remove all their ads in one fell swoop, without having to report through eBay... It's this magical service called MailBait https://mailbait.info/index.html
It will fill the inbox of any recipient with LOTS of spam and is used for "testing purposes" Whistle and makes for finding legitimate emails from friends/victims impossible to find.
I obviously don't condone signing any of these email addresses that you see in these ads up to such a service though. Stuart
