This recently seen in Farmers Ads by a mate: Land Rover - Discovery, Land, Land Rover Discovery in Bristol | Farming Ads Very good price. In fact an exceedingly good price. Cutting a long story short....the c*nt's last email said this Hi again, You are right, I bought this car in July and I've changed the number plate. The log book is in my name. Before leaving I had prearranged shipping and payment with PayPal (the most secure way to pay and get paid) so my presence isn't necessary. The car is at our Headquarters from Grantham, Lincolnshire. The Logistic Department will deliver the car to your home. The price includes all the shipping costs and insurance, so you won't have to pay any extra charges. Since I work with the Army the delivery process is not an issue, I'll have the car shipped at your home address in maximum 2 days. Here is what I suggest: we will use PayPal services, you'll make the payment in a PayPal managed account trust fund (they'll hold the money until you'll receive the car ), I will send the car over( the car will be delivered with the owner's manual, service records, and of course the bill of sale authorized and signed by me),I will offer a 5 days period from the day you'll receive the car , you can inspect it, take it to a mechanic to check it out, drive it and then if you decided to keep it, you'll confirm to PayPal the sale and they will send the payment to me. If, by any reason, you will not be satisfied with it (I can assure you that it is exactly as described), you can return it at my expense for a full refund of your money, no questions asked.Please note, that the return of my car will be made, only after you will get your money back. I think this is more than fair for the both of us. The payment is refundable, and is just a security measure, to make sure that the buyer is serious, and that I am not going to ship the car, and loose time and money. Your payment is 100% covered, because I have open a Trust Account with PayPal and if something goes wrong, you will get a full refund from my account. If you are interested to go ahead with the deal, please reply with your full name, phone # and shipping address so I can ask PayPal to open a case! After that, they will contact you explaining all the details regarding the payment. I'm looking forward to hear from you. Martin Sgt. Martin Jack Huey 165 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC email@example.com Hi again, I am from Hambrook , Bristol, but I was deployed last week in Umm Qasr, Iraq and I think I'll stay here for a while that's why I'm selling it so cheap. I intend to buy a new car when I'll get back home. My phone# is 07466488472, but I can't take calls from other people except family. You can send me a text if you want. I will use Paypal to sell this car safely since I'm not able to make the sale in person. Let me know if you are interested in a purchase and I will give you more info. Cheers, Martin Sgt.
