    Default Beware - Used MB C-250 CDI in Islamabad.

    PW's.

    I noted this advertisement in the used car section, i showed my interest and sent PM to the seller.

    But was surprised by the response I got.

    BEWARE, as the information in the advertisement is contrary to the details seller provided by email.

    Beware  Used MB C250 CDI in Islamabad -1175248


    Copy of email I received from the seller

    "Hello,

    Mercedes Benz C Class C 250
    Used Mercedes Benz C Class C 250 CDI 4MATIC 2010 Car for sale in Islamabad - 569398 | PakWheels
    Due to the fact I am quite busy I found out a company which will help me to sell the car easily.
    They will handle shipping, payment and everything else. I will pay all taxes for shipping.
    You will have 2 days for inspect the car.Let me explain you how does the shipping company works. First I will get the car to the shipping company. When they will have the car in their custody(I will give you a tracking number so you can track the shipping process at any time) you have to transfer 50% from the car value to them (the shipping company will inform you how to make the payment). After the transfer is done the shipping company will put the money secure and they will continue the shipping. After you will receive and inspect the car (2 days) you will have to inform the shipping company if you want or not the car. In case you will keep the car you'll have to pay the rest of the money to the shipping company,in case you will not keep the car the shipping company will pay you back the money.
    Here is company website: Global Lines CO.

    If you are interested get back to me and provide me the following details so I can make the shipping documents:

    Name:
    Address:
    City:
    Zip code:
    Country:
    Phone number:

    Thanks

    Hello,


    The last price is PKR 1,255,500. The car is in excellent condition, no damage, never involved in any accidents, no scratches, garage kept. It is working properly.I am the first owner of the car. I am from London , United Kingdom. I have a company here in United Kingdom and I've made businesses on Pakistan and this car was used only for driving in Pakistan where I've had some stores. Here in London I have a car with the steering weel on the right side so I do not use the car here. The car is registered in Pakistan , I didn't registered in United Kingdom and all the papers are ok. Now I closed the stores from Pakistan and I do not need anymore the car so for the sale it goes.The car will be shipped by a company from United Kingdom to your country. I will pay for shipping and insurance so you don't have to worry for more expences. The car will arrive to you in about 6-7 days and you will have 3 days to inspect it before take the decision to buy it or not.


    If you need any further information please feel free to contact me.

    looks copy paste from the adds on ebay and gumtree here in UK, where they advertise cars at astonishingly low price for a high spec cars to lure the targets, once you contact them they will send you this kind of email, blah blah, car is garaged in UK, he is away from UK and after payment, car will be released to you in UK or shipped to UK

    if something looks too good to be true, it probably is!

    on the same note, Pakwheels do have some duty towards add filtering and moderation of such scams!
