has anyone asked this guy for an actual picture of the vehicle..not just stock photos? We should suggest a photo with todays newspaper on the hood to prove they really have the truck.

I sent him mail, re: stock photos, "new in box" and how in gods name would anyone in the US be able to import such a vehicle. As expected, no response.

Here's the response (Charles read his mind about the photo "problem"):

Dear f1smob,

Hi there and thank you for the question. The car is Brand New, Unused and NEVER EVER driven. It is currently in the bondage warehouse inside a Big Box made of wood (this is what I mean new in box)so taking a photo of the actual car is a little unlikely. But the photos I have posted genuinely represent the actual car. Ofcourse the car due to its Santorini Black metallic paint and overall look up close and personal is much more impressive and fierce.
Thing is...I have NEVER exported to the US and this is something that unfortunately the buyer (you)must make sure is feasable before you purchase the car. My job is simply to ship the car securely and safely to its buyer.
Thanks

Agreed. I think I'm going to keep hassling him. Happy Friday!

Have you seen that site where they humiliate nigerian scammers?

http://www.419eater.com/

Ask him for a picture of him in front of the box holding a sign that says "D90 Source"

Great idea. Stay tuned for the comic relief.

Check his feedback. He's never sold ANYTHING on Ebay, but made 60 recent purchases, all for some wierd skull and crossbones pins and badges and Russian hats. They don't seem like the type of stuff someone with a $90k Defender would buy.

Yeah, saw that. Artificially inflates his feedback by buying cheap crap. Probably has several accounts just like this one.
