  • i think someone wants to steal my car....

    as some of you know im selling my standard vxr exhaust system on ebay.
    some guy offered me 90 quid for it and said he'd pick it up and pay cash in hand so i was like ok buy it now for 100 and just pay 90 when you pick it up, so its all legit. anyway hes like said NO, GIVE ME YOUR ADDRESS AND ILL PAY CASH, so i argued back and said lets do it legit so we both get feedback and all, but he really want my address thats all hes askin 4....
    im not goin 2 give it to him i dont care if i dont sell the zaust just think this guy is abit dodgy...
    any thoughts??

        DO NOT GIVE IT!

        Sounds dodgy. Just say unless he goes through proper chanels then he can get stuffed.

        Oh, if he wins the bid, arrange shipping.

            TO be fair, your asking the guy to buy something on ebay for £100 and pay £90 if he does that then you could chase him for the £10 as he;s entered into an agreement to pay £100 for it.

                        tom i agree with what your saying, if you put option to collect on ebay then thats fine, but if not just explain you dont have time for people to collect, and will need sending out by courier

                        obvioulsy people ring me all the time wanting my address to view our cars, im always suspicious and i can usually tell if they are genuine or not by the way they ask

                        shame in life that you cant trust anyone

                          Give him an address for a KFC car park or something like that (somewhere you can have mates with you just in case) and use a different sim card to let him contact you. If he has any problem meeting you there tell him to get stuffed

                            Always meet somewhere away from your home address and make sure someone is with you or your in a busy area incase things go pete tongue.

                              try and arrange to meet him at a petrol station away from home or something and say your house is out in the sticks and a sod to find, if he reacts odd then he wants your car or new zorst of it, if he says ok then meet him sell it but dont go straight home were he could follow you lol
