I think there is alot less chance of scammers that way, but I also realise it's tempting to go out to the whole world as it were.

As long as you can recognise the bad emails , they are usually pretty obvious.

Cheers,  Conrad.

Who was it that responded to your classified ? I had a slightly strange email (via the TRR) this morning about the Flying Jacket I am selling.

From a french sounding name.

Hi Harry, Yep Mine was the same guy, Gourdon Pierre.   Email gourdon.marie.pierre@gmail.com

Kept asking for "final price", where to send the cheque, & all my phone numbers,   despite me telling him it was already sold to someone else.

Hi Harry

You have got me wondering now - just had an enquiry from 'Pierre Dumoulin' in France. After a set of refurbished throttle bodies for his dad and seems in a bit of a hurry - 2 emails and a website enquiry in half an hour.

Answer him Martin,  what's the worse that can happen !!!!

I don't know how they gain from scamming, unless you hand over money , bank details etc 

Have fun , 

Conrad.

Hi Conrad, Would be a weird scam if he's paying me money. I shall proceed with caution!

The Classic is, "Whoops!  Paid you too much!  [by a factor of ten or more!] Please return the excess?  Thnak you kindly!"

And the big cheque from him bounces, you're down by the "excess".

SEND ME THE PICTURE AND THE LAST PRICE - The price and photographs are on the ad, so I didn't bother replying, I reported it to Wayne, but I guess its impossible to keep ahead of the scammers, and apologies if you are a real person charlotte.rawson.nash...........send me a pm.

Interestingly a Google search on that name turns this up https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/officers/0M9RIuojyVpK6fWopw0kdUWp8gI/appointments

Hi John - should be OK with that as I only do BACS. You would be lucky now to be able to get in a bank to pay a cheque in!

"Send me the last price" is exacly to reply I got when selling a flying jacket on the TRR site recently.   I walked away from the enquiry.

My experience of ‘Send me the last price’ is a typically Middle Eastern / North African phrase and signifies the beginning of a haggle which in the mind of the ‘buyer’ ends up with the seller giving the item away and also paying for delivery!

Charlotte was also interested in the model TR7 that I had on the classifieds recently, which is why I will only ever advertise in future as members only.
