Don't part with your hard earned money until you physically see the van, log book, mot, service history etc... Check VIN number from V5 against that on the van, and get someone who knows what they are looking for to check it over first. You can get a check done off your smart phone for about £3. Let you know if it's got any outstanding finance or been in an accident.

its a scam,i had my suspicions when i put the thread up,he wont let me view the van untill its delivered to me and i have started payment procedures,this is how it goes
- you give me your full name and shipping address

- I deliver the van,
- you receive the van,

Oh I'm so interested in your camper. Can I view it? I'm near you, can I come over? Questions, questions.
there are buyers scamming sellers too. I've had some guy agree to buy my van even though he's not seen it ("I'm not in town right now"). If I just tell him where his shippers can collect it he will paypal me the money.
