Any members in Aberdeen?

Recommended Posts

Hi, this may be a bit of a long shot, but just wondering if there is any one available to go and eyeball an Esprit engine for me in the AB25 area?

I just need someone to confirm it exists and its general condition before I either pay a lot of money and await its delivery or embark on a 1000 mile round trip to collect.

Thanks

Andy.

I would absolutely trust and recommend @johnpwalsh from Lotus Rescue. He knows the engines and Esprits inside out and is a top bloke.

Very strange I got eBay msg :

"Are you still interested in buying my Lotus engine? The highest bidder proved to be a time waster, he's from Poland and told me to wait around 4 weeks until he's able to come in U.K. to collect it, i am sorry for him but i can't wait so long. If you are still interested please contact me and maybe we can arrange a deal.

Kind Regards,
John"

and offering price :£3000 !

So, be careful  and hope John Walsh will help you to find out !

OK, Thanks Yasuo for the Heads up!

Yes, the seller refer's to himself as John and obviously doesn't mind telling a lie.

I only became suspicious during the communication between us once the sale was over. Saying that though, he is still offering me the option to pay cash on collection.

The plot thickens!!!

Yes me too! It seems that I did smell a rat. Although not until after the sale.

whereupon!

1.He seemed far too keen to get the deal done and get the money.

2. bad spelin and, not grammer good?

3.Was not interested in a phone call to discuss collection and payment.

4.Was being quite pushy in explaining how trustworthy he was. An honest family man with his honest job and his wife and two daughters so can you send the money now!

Also having a good forum community to help confirm your suspicions is worth its weight in subscriptions!

I haven't parted with any money though so no harm done. I'm just disappointed as this package would of been perfect for repairing the fire damaged S4.

Not all is lost. I think that @johnpwalsh was saying that he also has an engine for sale.

Though you have of course reported the seller to ebay?  Speak to @johnpwalsh, his reputation is spot on, he's a top bloke, and he knows Esprits...

I haven't, but judging by the amount of emails i received from eBay this morning I think they know. It seems it was another hacked account which they say they have now restored.

I have been in touch with John,and told him the situation.
