That's how the scam works.

Got it?
Sorry, how does it work again?

Well done DCI RUI!

I have a beer, and am sitting back waiting for this one to pan out. Top work Robin. Keep it up!

Re: Scamming the scammers

This is the best whodunit I've read in ages.

Top job!

Re: Scamming the scammers

Bingo.

We have a reply. Kelly (funny how her name was Laura in the advert) seems not to want to answer my question as to where she lives in Ireland. Funny that. This is her latest message:

Quote Quote:
Hello ,

First i will need your ALL YOUR DETAILS , FULL ADDRESS so i can
search for a good delivery company and find out the delivery fees and after that
i will be able to give you more information.

best regards, Kelly
Wilson
I think Maxi's advice is good (about appearing keen), so I went back with this:

Quote Quote:

Hi Kelly

I'm really relieved to hear from you - I was beginning to worry that you had sold the car to someone else!

Anyway, there really is no need to deliver the car. You're price is a very fair one so I am happy to cover any costs myself. I would very much like to come and see the car this weekend with my wife, Maxi. She is very excited about the car!

I am happy to tell you my address though, if you want that so you can trust me. There are lots of bad people out there so it is important for honest people like you and me to be open with each other, don't you think?

So, my address is [an old address of mine].

Hope that is enough information for you!
So where will we go next I wonder? I suspect we will find out tomorrow.

Lie back and think of England (or Australia) - you're getting a nearly new Fiat 500 out of this, remember.
