    Alas, I'm sad to report that this is still going on. I am usually very diligent in making sure things are legit, but in my searches on google, this website and the piston heads forum didn't come up, and I was scammed last week by a James Warner from Hemel Hempstead. I got to see his driving licence and copy of a rent slip. I tripped up by trusting him and checking out the freight company Global Express Transport Solutions ltd, and the website came up OK, and I emailed the website and got a sound reply from them. What I failed to do was to check out the owner of the website www.globalexpltd.co.uk ...registered to Anna Flynn. Not any of the names registered for the company at YouGov
    I'm sure James has had his I.D. stolen by Romanians. The account for the payment seemed like jumbled letters, but doing more research, BEZDED is a small village in Romania.
    And guess which friendly bank is still handing out accounts to foreign fraudsters? This time in Durham.

    My advert was for a Land Rover Discovery 3 on eBay. Ebay took the advert down but didn't inform those watching, so it gave the impression that the seller took it down.
    There is a similar scam recorded this week on the pistonheads forum with the seller being Anna Flynn...who registered the Global Transport Solutions website. Now not online. If I discover anymore I'll let you know.

    hi - thanks so much for this forum - it's just stopped me being scammed via ebay classified add for a VW camper £5100- exactly same process with mobile phone/email contacts & a shipping company - Global Express Worldwide Limited (the website & tracking seemed to check out & no idea if this a legitimate company) I was quite far down the line, having given utility bill details but something didn't seem right - of course add disappeared from ebay & it seems impossible to report 'seller' as can't find ref. number - I did take screenshot of ebay page & will try to use it with them - no idea if ebay 'seller' was used or complicit. I have since located original add on gumtree, needless to say campervan price much higher (& prob. much more realistic but I've only been looking for few days & hadn't got price/spec clear). I will try and make some progress with ebay but not hopeful.

    If us victims are to stand any chance of receiving our stolen money back we must start a steering group, am sure between us we can gets things done instead of being fobbed off as individual cases.
