Re: Car-buying scam?

if the numbers are to be trusted, my car ad here got as many views as my expensive ad autoscout24 (around 1500 each in two months) and whats more, I got to deal with inquiries form EF in English.

but... at least one inquiry, my very first, via autoscount, was a Francophone scammer pretending to be stuck in Africa with a 'full passport' -
plus lots of car resellers wanting to pay half its value.

very different audiences, (but i think there are "lurkers' everywhere)
