    If you are buying anything in the UK and cant physically pay and collect then be very careful. UK car exports are up and so are scams.

    Be careful of anything too cheap.

    Be careful of anyone offering to deliver the car to port inclusive of cost. even aged ebay accounts are getting hacked so be careful of a good standing ebay account that hasnt been used in over a year.

    Run pictures through image reverse to see if its been advertised previously. copy/paste text into google for same. If its listed concurrently with gumtree be afraid.

    Appoint a uk agent to inspect the vehicle and/or third party any money transaction.
