  • ! SCAM WARNING !

    A scammer is using car forums to sell 'a garage full of parts'... his reason for selling is that his wife/girlfriend wants rid of all the parts and he needs the money to finish his Land Rover.

    The parts for sale are sought after and all listed cheaply with delivery included... payment is by PayPal only.

    He has appeared on various forums of late and recently did an Escort forum out of at least £1000!

    This is his IP address 62.253.32.4 and it traces back to an NTL IP in the Northampton area and Northampton Police have already opened a case file on him.

    He lists his addresses as:

    31 west walk
    corby old village
    corby
    northants

    and his inlaws live at

    1 west view
    corby old village
    corby
    northants
    nn17 1as

    Although these addresses are false.

    His PayPal account was under the address:

    [email protected]

    Using the names Mark Dines and Martin (or Martyn) Dines.

    PLEASE BE VERY WARY OF NEW MEMBERS OFFERING PARTS AT TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE PRICES! If you aren't sure about a member selling parts, please contact the forum mods.
    I saw this on www.306gti6.com thought i would pass it to here
    Thank for reading this and be careful out there. If you know any other forums that could benefit from this info, please pass it on.

    This was from a VW forum but he has done the same on manta, mark 1 golf and Ford forums.
