under no circumstances should you contact or ever do a deal with this sort of response to an advert you have placed on the internet. You will get ripped off and even if it all seems great you will get stung. :smash:

 

You have been warned mate. :D

 

Further more I would consider reporting it to the police mate???

Its deffo a scam mate, i had the same thing a few years back when this sort of thing started surfacing. I advertised my mates car for £12k i received a bankers draught for £15k and was supposed to send the £3k via western union transfer to pay for the "shipping". It was the guy at Lunn Polly who was going to do the western union thing told me it was a scam and that i'll never get the money, he was more surprised when i showed him the £15k and that was after it had cleared 5 days later, we went to the cops and they said no crime had been committed so we went back to the bank who insisted it was all above board, we even talked to the manager who assured us the money was ours, eventually we persuaded his to take the money back but he only agreed to that by opening an account for us and putting the money in that. A week later the bank called to say the bankers draughts were stolen.
