There is a car advertised on that is supposedly in Madrid. The price is, in my view, too good to be true. Emails with the vendor are triggering a few alarm bells but likewise could be genuine. He states that he is moving to Estonia for work reasons and hence the sale.

He also states, "In the case of a sale, I could send the vehicle to your home through an international transport company that offers a complete service and also, before buying it, you will have it tested for a few days at your home."

Now this to me sounds almost a bit like the "I will send you money" scams of old, albeit I dont really see how that works with a car. It seems odd to me though as he has no idea where I am based so to make this offer up front adds to my already large suspicions. Is there anyone in Madrid that fancies checking it out?!
