This website is becoming increasingly popular with TVR fans around the world, so you have nothing to lose by advertising your car here - you may be pleasantly surprised.
WARNING: Recently I have found advertising on the internet attracts interest
not only from potential buyers, but also from scammers and people trying to
gain from dishonesty. In particular this has been found to be the case regarding
potential buyers of classic vehicles and also of some high value or rare car
SELLING CARS: Beware of any enquiry which asks you for your full home address immediately in the first email you receive from the interested party. One seller has informed me that he was asked for his address and this could well be so the enquirer can steal his car for sale.
SELLING PARTS: Beware of any enquiry especially if the buyer is from a
country you wouldn't normally associate TVR owners with - the most common
countries (according to this website's data) are UK, USA, France, Belgium,
Netherlands, in fact most of Europe, also Australia. Many scams come from
African countries and Eastern Europe so be extra careful. Do not use Western
Union for receiving payment, DO NOT give any of your bank account details,
and request the buyer uses Paypal if at all possible. Even then, sometimes
Paypal can refund a buyer if he/she accuses you of not sending the item, and
I have heard this can happen even when a seller has sent the item but the
buyer denies this. Always use an Insured method of posting the item so you
don't lose out if the Mail Service lose/damage the item.
In short, just be very careful selling (and buying) - if at all possible meet the seller face to face and deal in cash if possible. Always take a Counterfeit Money Marker Pen to ensure the cash you receive is authentic.
I have recenlty been a target from a money laundering gang here in my home town who tried to get me to fill their car with fuel using my payment card, and they would give me the cash in return! Their excuse was that the overnight pumps only took card & not cash and that his fuel light had just come on so he was stuck. This was almost certainly fake cash they were trying to launder. The guy was a "local" taxi driver which was the main giveaway - why didn't he call a Taxi mate to give him the fuel? After I refused the Taxi driver went to a second car & I heard him tell the occupants that I refused - they then sped away!
