It has been brought to my attention today that there are some 'people' out there replying to ads in the Classified Ads service and to all intents and purposes, the approach sounds exactly the same as a common scam.
    They are abroad, purchasing for a 'friend' in the UK.
    They want to pay by cheque.
    They are just a bit too keen.
    The English used is pretty poor.

Here's the request as passed to me :

Hello ,
Good Day, I was fortunate to come across your advert, so I would like to know if it still available for sale ,if available for sale , I would love to get it , so I would like to know the last asking price and condition at present , also I would be much grateful ,if you can forward some pictures along in your response to my enquiry .

Less I forget ,I would like to inform you that I would making my payment by cheque ,so I hope you understand me ,have a nice day and I await your response shortly concerning my enquiry .

Treat these enquiry as urgent because I am really interested .
Yours Sincerely.
Mike.

Our Classified Ads service is not the only place in the world where this sort of thing is happening, although I'm amazed to find that we've been targetted so soon!

PLEASE BE AWARE - ultimately, it is up to you as the seller to take every precaution when making your sale.  I cannot be held responsible for any contract between a seller and buyer using our services to arrange the transaction.

Sorry folks - not the greatest of news.

Simon
