Could certainly be a scam, though it would be a dumb one here b/c you can buy a Defender if you want-plenty of them for sale (though they prefer the RR, RRS, etc). That, and most transactions are face to face so you don't get the same 'paypal me a deposit' opportunities and such.
Lic plate def looks like a US one vice Emirati.
Personally I prefer this but won't be here long enough to see her go past the sunset:
I'm also more likely to try to find a gulf-spec 3 door Disco or an older two door RRC-but the wife says a series is the next Rover we buy anyway so all is moot.
