#16347 ahg double tune sesh AGAIN

Al, Sounds like you need to stop messing around with seond hand POS gearboxes and get something that you are certain wont go bang. IMO Buying 5 SH POS GBs has probably cost you the same amount as a new solid one.

And Im Pretty sure Brett and I will be doing it again (huhhum, track day that is). Probably share a half half sesh again. :sorcerer:

#16120 Paypal Scam when selling Vehicles

Posted by Tritty on 14 December 2010 - 08:45 AM

Well just found out this is not just for cars, I am selling a Saddle on Cavalletti Classifieds and I got a message on there too. Might alter my description and add NO PAYPAL!

#15839 Paypal Scam when selling Vehicles

Posted by Tritty on 08 December 2010 - 04:32 PM

I guess listing No paybal might work, but it seems that these people dont actually read the adds since they never had a clue as to what price the vehicle was advertised for and often offered excessive amounts for the vehicle.

Good move in deleting it. :)

#15831 Paypal Scam when selling Vehicles

Posted by Tritty on 08 December 2010 - 10:40 AM

Hi Everyone
Not too long ago Brett and I were trying to sell one of our cars on Gumtree. We received a very strange email almost immediately from someone who was strangely working at sea who wanted the car for his dad as a gift and could not make payment any way except through Paypal. They did not care about inspecting the vehicle and said they would have a truck driver come pick it up. Seemed very suss, as we already had a paypal account we did not click the link to see where it went, if it is an actual link to paypal or not I don’t know. Anyway after trying to correspond to this person it went nowhere. We were not affected in any way other than wasting out time.

My dad just listed a Camper on Autotrader and put my mobile as a contact as he is seldom by the phone. I got 2 sms messages saying to email them with the camper details and price which I thought was strange. One of the numbers was a bit odd too being 0000000000 very unusual.
I emailed them accordingly.
I got a reply this morning from Paul Wolf [sunrise19631@hotmail.com], the name seems like its made up, I guess there might be a paul wolf out there. Lol
This was his reply
“I am very keen,Let me know the actual asking price. How i wish i could come and view what am buying from you.but am currently overseas at the moment and i want it picked up before i get back, though i will be back in couple of weeks. Due to my inability to make a bank deposit, I would be paying via PayPal which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account at www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one. I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your PayPal account. Few more photos will be appreciated as well.
Have a nice day.

Sounds very much like the email we got before, they are conveniently overseas or at sea or somewhere they cant make payment any way apart from paypal, don’t care about seeing the car, have no idea about the price of the vehicle, Will arrange transport to pick up and no other contact details for this person.

The other email was 'kenwillis004@gmail.com'

I did a bit of a search online and found other people posting up on sites the same thing has happened to them.
or search google if you want to find for yourself.

Anyway just thought Id give the heads up that this is circulating. As far as I know there has been nothing bad happen other than wasting time but best to be safe than sorry.
It may not just apply to vehicles but that is all I have experienced.

A friend said they had the same thing happen to them recently...
"When I refused to continue with the deal they said that they were going to commence proceedings against me unless I paid.

I reported them to Paypal."

Maybe that is how the scam works, trying to scare people into paying for withdrawing on the sale. She is a lawyer so it didnt work with her.

#15343 4x4 Cruise 2011

Harvey is really beautiful! Our endurance riding uses a lot of tracks that are used for off road. You can go right out to the dam. Heaps of hill climbing. The powerline tracks arnt bad but there are nicer tracks out there. Now having said that, our tracks were marked so I wouldnt have a clue on how to get anywhere out there, it would be more of a "lets see where this one goes" type deal. lol
Maybe there is some sort of directory with all the off road tracks on it, that would be worth buying.
Also Roz and I are ready to go camping again, we were thinking of Lancelin, because of the beach, maybe around March when its still warm but not too hot for the bubbas. Might organise a seperate one for this though.
