    jesus i know what you mean however i have been told that this case is being taken quite seriously because its not a one off. dont know how much more i really should say on that one.

    my car was insured for a bit lower than the sale price but its still much better than getting zero.

    Well I have seen enough episodes of Numb3rs to know they can work out where he lives based on where he made his calls from...


    George I was coming on PF today to ask if you still had it for sale as I might of had a legit buyer for you


    The fact that the cops said he has done this a few times before shows how much lack of interest they are at finding the bloke..

    Anyway good luck mate.

    Did he negotiate the price?
    I would hate to think you dropped the price for him and then to have him steal the thing!

    I don't work for Carsales / Datamotive but have a very good relationship with a few of the National Managers and Board Members.

    I can assure you they would take this sort of thing very seriously because it harms their brand and core business. I know in the past they have worked hard to minimise / eliminate fraud through the site from scammers.

    If you want to PM me with details i am more than willing to speak to these people and make them aware and then see if they can formulate a plan of attack to protect others against scum like this!

    I'm sorry it doesn't help you but may protect others or help find this cunt

    st: he didnt negotiate on price which is probably a bit sus thinking back now but considering how much i spent on the car it was already a bargain so i didnt think much of it.

    mrmzda: ill send you a pm, i would very much like to stop this happening to anyone again!

    Just saw this thread - i loved this thing and can't believe you got stooged mate...

    Hope you catch the cunt. I went with the guy who bought my RX-7 to Commonwealth Bank, opened an account and got him to transfer the money in. Withdrew it as a cheque, closed account. Put it in my St George account. Needless to say, the staff at my local Commonwealth Bank weren't happy...

    Fuck, just saw this thread. Sorry to hear mate, this must be a nightmare. I've sold all my cars privately with a bank cheque without so much as a second thought. Will definitely be more careful next time.

    Your Evo was one of the best examples I'd ever seen. At least you've got the insurance as back up. Hope they catch the scum, you never know...

    man thats really rooted.

    No tellers dont check the bank cheques for shit... they look at the name, match to the account, then deposit... FWIW you are lucky it was only 1 day before being dishonoured, could have been 3,4..5 even depending on the bank.

    I wonder if they can verify the cheque at the branch? Xcuzme said the teller entered it a-ok, it bounced at a later date..

    watching them draw the cheque seems the only way to be sure.

    Sounds like a good plan..... but in this case he took the cheque to the bank, it was only 3 days later before he found out it was counterfeit.

    I don't know too many people that would wait for the bank cheque to clear after the bank has accepted it..... I didn't realise that bank cheques dont clear instantly, I wonder when that started happening, must have been a result of this kind of activity.

    The teller should of at least put the cheque under a black light, if it passed that then maybe they were stolen cheques.

    I don't think bank cheques ever had special clearance but either from oldskool thought or maybe oldskool marketing the community has always assumed they were as good as cash.



    George you going to post up the pic of him!?!?

    George, really sorry to hear this story dude!

    By any chance have you still got the factory satellite tracker fitted or did you rip it out? If still in, surely Mitsubishi can still track the car if you pay the fees?

    Brilliant find

    Insurance company would probably like a look at it also.

    Ever wanted to be on ACA ?

    Dude it's not like you excepted a IOU and let this cunt drive your car away, don't give it another thought!

    I would wait to see what the cops and Insurer say, if nothing comes of it I agree with Mr Q and have a think about getting this story on ACA or TT.

    Awesome you have a photos of him, it's not bad quality at all.
