I think you'll find that at any one time there are hundreds of scams going on in used cars, boats, caravans etc.

Surely people are smart enough to spot the obvious traits by now.
Low price, lack of detail, interstate, payment terms, unavailability to meet, urgent sale, no phone contact. " working on a rig".

Johnnykluger.
Why were you almost convinced to buy? Ah, the attractive price I suppose.
All they want is ALL your details, bank details, account numbers etc, you should also be prepared to supply your Blood group and foot and jock size, in addition, your address and parents names will surely assist them in their efforts, in case they require that too. They want to know you are a genuine buyer of course.
All that will help with the transaction which will take place. You may then be able to access an ATM or banks in different cities at the same time. Maybe not you but someone will.
How many Johnnyklugers are there out there?

The phrase may or may not have been a product of the intellect of a certain Mr PT. Barnum but IMHO it still carries a certain amount of legitimacy.

"There's one born every minute".

Obviously that doesn't include Johnnykluger however.

I'm surprised your smiley has not offended someone and been drawn to the attention of the moderator Pop. It seems to be of someone with a severe squint in one eye and a single eyebrow.

If you are doubtful because a a good price, Google an image from their advertisement. It will usually bring up the same photo on a genuine advertisement by a legitimate dealer, and at a very different price. Not always of course. On a forum, one member found HIS caravan from a photo he had posted on that forum, being 'offered for sale' by scammers at a ridiculously low price.
