Went to see it ( it was then on for £3700 - now dropped to £3100
Rung up - Polish lady answers....' chat chat chat, yes it's my car '
Arrange to see her, call her when I arrive. ' Er, I had to pop out, my brother will come round'
5 min later, big Merc pulls up, and a massive bruiser gets out, straight out of " Eastern Mafia " central casting.
Do a test drive, then look at paper work ( tatty log book with panels missing ) ' Is this your sisters car, and how long has she owned it?'
' Da ( heavy accent ), she had car for years two'
'And it's registered on the log book in her name? '
' So her name is "Tracey Sharon Smith"?'
Pause....'Da, she er...married english man'
' So can we do payment by bank transfer? '
' Niet - cash only my friend '
Run away, run away.....
