Miserly I am disappointed in you I thought you would be busy trying to get the seller to let you inspect it by now.

I bought a 2010 pathfinder last year after having a Camplet. I'm so happy with it that after seeing that one for sale I would be tempted to put a bid in. I'm not sure what I would do with two though! Mine fits in the garage with 1cm to spare -so I wouldn't get another one in.
It will be interesting to watch how much it goes for. The pictures look great.

Classic scam signs
Too cheap
Out of the way location
Poster just registered on ebay
Delivery 100

Poster also has an expensive bike, also too cheap and delivery again

BUT...........if you really think that everything is above board, just ask to view it and you never will, regardless of any excuse/reason to view, even if you lived round the corner!

I'm not sure...is the description correct? I thought that the brown ones were normal canvas and not the acrylic stuff.

There was once a pathfinder on ebay with an end bathroom,so brown acrylic isn't too outlandish!

I think it's a scam too, because:
new ebay seller
price way too good to be true for 2009
states will aceept paypal, but also asking for postal order or bankers draft (which will mean buyer has no recompense against ebay when goes wrong)
Offering deliver - no way will this be delivered after you pay them

I have just asked if potential viewers can view to see what they say. but I agree, I don't think I would touch it with a barge poll

Not sure how you can say it's too cheap. It's an auction with over 2 days still to run. Perhaps it will go up?

As for out of the way. 30 minutes from Glasgow and close to Kilmarnock.

You may be right but in my opinion more likely a new ebayer joined to sell his toys and inexperience shows.

If I was interested I'd want to make contact as he requests. If I was suspicious I'd report it.

There are some lovely people on here,and it's to their credit that they are willing to think the best of others,but this one is probably a little chap somewhere in deepest darkest (insert foreign country here) trying it on.
The listing is identical to so many definite scams last year.

As I live less than ten miles from where it's supposed to be, I have sent a message requesting to go and view it.

Waits with baited breath.....

The bike description states it has 6 months tax, yet the tax disc shows it run out in 2012, so unless they are going to put 6 months tax on before they sell it...?

I'm still not sure enough to report it...but it is niggling.

Yes, I suspect it's a scam too, and have reported it. Why? Seller with no previous sales or feedback. 100 carriage (surely cash on collection, on a folding camper?). Most importantly, I emailed the seller to query the carriage fee and received this response:

'My asking price is 3800 inc delivery to your address. Let me know what you think.'

Err, I think I hear alarm bells ringing!

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
