Good evening my name is tom, i am a new member. i am a long time admirer of the VW and Kombi, and now I'm about to step into the market place to buy. I thought i would share this experience with you... After attempting to contact a 59 splitty ad, which deep down I knew was too goo to be true... i got this as a response 3 weeks later: Hi and sorry for my late reply. The 1959 Volkswagen Kombi is still available, it has been well taken care of, always garaged and it has only 174,778 km. It has no damage, no accident and no finance, I have all the papers and documents. The price I am asking is AU $7,400. I was serving in RAAF Melville Island, NT but I was just promoted and transferred to RAAF United Kingdom for a 5 years period, therefore I need a fast and reliable buyer. Before leaving for England I left the car at our Military Logistic Department from RAAF Melville Island, AU army, all crated and ready to go. I've arranged the shipping and the papers transfer anywhere in Australia. The shipping will be free of charge because I will transport it using the internal logistic department. I want the transaction to be handled only through Google (Google Wallet - Escrow Services) because they offer the highest rate of safety and reliability during online transactions, both for buyer and seller. You will make the payment to Google Wallet and they will keep the money in a secure bank/escrow account until you will receive and inspect the car. I will pay for the registration fees. You will have 7 days to inspect it. If the car is not as described it will be shipped back on my expense and Google will refund the money to your account. This way, you will be able to inspect the vehicle before committing to buy it and I know that you have the money available for purchase. In order to move forward and register the transaction with Google Wallet UK I will need your full name and address, after that they will send you the instructions on how to safely make the payment to them. Kind Regards, Lt Col. Darryl Lamond Needless to say i reported this scam to ebay and the ad has since been removed.
