jawdropping Re: Van Scam Ad on ebay beware;

I'm trying to buy a Lwb T5 at the mo and have been looking on eBay, preloved, gumtree, trade it, Friday ads the lot! I cannot believe how many scams there are out there! Of all the things I've bought online T5's are by far and away the most scammed item.
I've had a guy who move to Spain with a right hand drive and can't sell it there because it's a right hooker, a widow from Sweden whose husband died and the van reminder her of him and the latest the Commanding Officer of HMS Heron in Yeovilton who's going to Afghanistan and needs to sell his van quickly.
These are all advertising T5's at a bargain price and seem Ok initially. The crux comes when you ask for their phone number and need to talk to them. You don't hear from them again! The old adages are true, if it seems to good to be true it usually is.
And if anyone has a lovely reasonably price Lwb camper let me know.
