We accurately verify all vehicle information and documents before launching an escrow transaction. Concerning your transaction in particular, regarding the 1964 MERCEDES 230 SL, we confirm that the vehicle and all documents involved have been minutiously verified and we guarantee it is genuine.

It is recommended to send payment as soon as possible, because your purchase protection is valid for 60 days only. Sending payment by any other method of payment will void this transaction and your right to refund.
To submit payment, you have to transfer the money to our designated escrow agent for escrow transactions in Hungary, using the details below:

When filling in the “beneficiary details (name and address)” field on the bank transfer form, you must not use the seller’s name and address. The “beneficiary details (name and address)” field on the bank transfer form must be filled in with our designated escrow agent’s name (Mohamed Kamal Omar) and the bank’s address (1132 Budapest, Vaci ut 6, Hungary).
In order to properly validate your payment and avoid transfer related issues, you need to send us a scanned copy of the bank transfer receipt by replying to this notification ([email protected]), or to the fax number: 0036-1-577-2064.

The seller will have 5 days to forward the shipping details. If no data is provided, a refund request has to be sent and the money will be returned to the buyer. Once the vehicle is received, the buyer has 7 days to inspect it. After the inspection period is over, the buyer will contact eBay with the results of the inspection. If the buyer refuses it, the vehicle will be returned to the seller, on seller’s expense and the money will be returned to the buyer.

Currently, this seller has a £20,000.00 deposit in an eBay managed purchase protection account. Transactions with this eBay seller are covered by purchase protection against fraud and description errors.

For your safety the payment details will be dealt with the utmost security and will not be handed to any third parties. We must remind you that we are in full control of the money transfer from the moment we receive it. Once the payment has been sent to us via bank transfer, no one but you will have access to it.

We will release the funds to the seller only after you receive and agree with the merchandise (1964 MERCEDES 230 SL). Should you need a refund for this transaction the insured amount will be taken from the seller’s purchase protection account and sent to you. The refund is sent to your bank account, or by check or money order. The account is managed and supervised by eBay’s SafeHarbor team.

Yo Mo! Just one further matter. It’s regarding you being one stupid azz SOB scammer. I pray you are impotent, as this world has enough trouble without you procreating too. Have you actually made any money with this weak attempt at a scam? If you are going to make money by robbing people, you need to be a lot better at it than you are. Disregard what your mum told you about you being “special”, you’re not! Your mother probably smoked crack when she was pregnant with you. You are an evolutionary dead end! Give it up mate.

I was thinking we all send 1 pound to the account but transfer fee at the cost of the receiver… Is that at all possible?.. that would be 1000s of negative transaction on the guy account costing him big time… Might think twice about it next time…

very good idea… I think you should walk this straight to the fraud department at the police station - this is enough evidence for him to be done and they can trace him now.


I’m a bit of a cynic when it comes to police action in these matters and in several others e.g. Andrea’s bike and the call to the police… what more can they ask for than being tipped off while the crime is being committed in London??? Did they ever show up?

I think you should just try and piss this guy off. I’ve done it before and the guy took the bait and I had him fuming in no time at all.

minutiously verified”??? Per-LEASE!!!

Quotes from e-bay’s own “buy safely” bit:

5. Escrow

Recommended for high-price items.


Payment is held by the escrow service until you receive and approve the item. Use caution when considering use of an escrow service to pay for your item. For eBay transactions, you should only use the following eBay-approved escrow companies: www.escrow.com (US and UK); www.escrowaustralia.com.au (AU); www.escrow-europa.com (IT and ES); http://ebay.iloxx.de (DE); www.tripledeal.com (FR, NL, BE). Learn more about how escrow works.

Doesn’t look like this escrow company in the scam even gives its name, and it’s certainly not one of those listed.

But the scary thing is, it does look fairly convincing for the gullible.
