hmm i'd very very wary with this one, I've had similar in the past...

If its autotrader etc, report it and get autotrader to check the guy out..

I did this, and it was some scammer in nigeria!

Advertised on PistonHeads? When I had my skyline for sale I had loads of people messaging me -

hi I'm interested in you car, I live/currently away on work in (a country) I would pay the full asking price via PayPal and get it picked up.... Ect ect

Scam! But as someone said bank transfer would seem legit I guess.

His previous posts all seem genuine with no discrepancies. I think he seems like a genuine buyer, however it's easy for me to say that as it's not my car or money on the line!

Everyone isn't a scammer.....I've sold bikes and cars to Sweden, Norway, NZ, OZ and bought them from the USA,Italy,Germany & japan. As long as you have the money I don't see the problem?

If you want to be absolutely sure cash stays yours, why not open a secondary account (maybe even different bank), use that for "weird" receiving of money and once confirmed: clean out the account & close it.

I have had a message as well from some US soldier in Afghanistan willing to buy my Evo; first thing I said was cash only... Never heard back.

And different point of view: my car was bought in the UK as well. I had a guy here taking care of it but seeing it was only a few 100 miles, he just flew over to collect the car. All finance was paid in advance and seller didn't "object" as much as others in this topic.

Mmmm well he could be genuine. but with Japan a stone throw away. surely it must be easier to get one from there. while i was in nz that's what they were all doing.

Not all scams sold two Evo's over seas
Just get the cash in then release the car only then
No drafts
No cheques
Pay cash in your bank firstly as may be fake
No PayPal unless 100%
There is lots of ways to claim money back !
Beleave me!

I sold my car overseas, took it to a garage they put the cash in my hand and we filled in the export part of the V5 and they took it to the docks and I drove back home, it's as simple as that.

If I was sent a bank transfer I would of been happy too. it's them that need to trust you!
