What a strange scam!

I thought the idea was to list a conventionally highly desirable car at a bargain price. Not list a weird spec old car most of the general public aren't interested in with pictures that clearly show it's rather tired and at a price no one would likely want to pay. Seems like a scammer who shouldn't give up the day job!

I know, I was surprised too. And I had a Register supporter in mind who lives in France who might have wanted to buy it had the price come down - significantly - but sadly I had someone who could speak neither German nor English sending me sexually threatening emails after taking the ad down when I told him I had reported him to the website? Been a long time since I was sexually threatened, I must still have some life left in me yet.

Sorry about this, I did not know the ad was a fake one – and sorry for the trouble...

But this Majestic is still in my neighborhood for sale, but unfortunately still very expensive:

Don’t be sorry, you were never to know. No one really expects things like this. It was still a very interesting car.

I think the scammers are spreading the net wider. Not just typical modern cars, but everything and anything that could net them some cash.
The scam thread I started shows loads of classic Jaguars. Plus the same account has 1000+ listings of every type of car/ can/ motorcycle/ boat....
