I'm pretty sure this is a scam: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133901145841?hash=item1f2d2156f1:g:MsMAAOSwnFBhZGlo The reg looks familiar, does anyone know who owns it? I've requested some photos of the VIN and the engine from the "seller".

The reg no. does look familiar. No one in their right mind would bid the current value without seeing, which makes me very suspicious that bidding has been manipulated/bidded up.

I agree, they won't be real bids. The "seller" has a good few other dodgy listings too, and loads of feedback, but none as a seller. I've reported the listing to eBay anyway, but thought the real owner may be interested to know an image of their car is being used in a scam. (And anyone interested in the car who googles the reg will now find this thread.)

Probably eBay, but I doubt it'll make any difference. The "seller" had 1000+ similar scam listings and I'm guessing eBay only removed this one. Just after I reported the listing they changed their user name, and I wouldn't be surprised if the same listing pops up again next week under yet another alias.
