I spotted an XK120 on ebay years ago at an unfeasibly low price, (probably worth £70K but advertised at £30K), and described as belonging to a Premiership footballer. I knew the actual car as a friend of mine had owned it for years and only recently sold it. I sent him the listing and he confirmed that he hadn't sold the car to a footballer and it was still safely in the possession of the guy he'd sold it to. Goodness knows how they obtained photos of it?
Rumour is the Albanian mafia is trying to find out where PandaSelecta lives!
Obviously, all the ones above have gone now but is this the guy that's listing 120-140 items "for a family friend / uncle" with a gmail email address in the description? theres always a couple of 2002ti BMWs in there as well as a couple of trikes.
He's at it constantly and I'm seeing it almost a couple of times a day on different accounts at the moment!

1965 Triumph Herald 12/50 in Royal Blue
There was 100s of these in my local searches (50 miles and under £7000) about a year ago, i reported each and every one of them for weeks on end and eventually they stopped. havent seen any in my area now for ages, doesnt mean there arent any as they could be in a higher price bracket but it did seem to make them stop.
The Ebay forums seemed to have the really sh1tty attitude of "if you fall for it you deserve it" and to just stop mentioning anything about it. i couldnt understand that mentality at all.
