    New eBay car scam Vw T5 posted by undertiege1 item number 152248275244,now removed after I messaged yesterday to make an offer. Fortunately I smelled a rat and more fortunately found this forum. Ive had text today from 07954 38962 saying if I'm still interested in the car to email amy216@mdapp.co.uk. Same seller has also listed a motorhome,a Hobby caravan and a Land Rover. Also be aware of item 122143005358 .... Another Vw T5 that looks very very dodgy.
