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/ van/ motorcycle/ boat....

It looks tidy. It’s still on P4000 tyres too, so those are likely 15 years old?
I suppose it must be “Mahogany” in colour.

Yep, that's Mahogany, with 'Mushroom' upholstery methinks.

Looks good for its mileage and imho quite reasonably priced for an LHD in this condition...

Interesting to see a '94 car (at least: according to seller it is) without the passenger airbag, btw.

They are talking about the date of registration though of course, not date of manufacture. Clearly it’s 93MY (no passenger air bag and orange cube wing repeaters (not x300 flat type). The VIN would corroborate.
