WARNING dont get caught. by this low life

Ok well the story goes i am looking for a 2001+ GU wagon with a 3ltr grenade cheap that is blown up, or cheap so i can do an engine upgrade to a 4.2.

Anyway i found this one on carsales. a 2003 NISSAN PATROL GU III MY2003 DX for $11,800

Private Used Cars - carsales.com.au

It was cheap but not too cheap as to ring alarms. and as i had been looking for so long I thought this would do me.
I rang up the owner and talked through the details of the car. It sounded good so i got his details and sent a deposit on monday (7th) $1800. well that is the last i heard from him. he does not answer the phone or emails.

Ok so i know all the things i did wrong but i thought i would tell you all. If i help someone then it will not all be in vain.

These are the details he told me.
Vin JN1TESY61A0345365
guys name is Eddy
his email is eddy2619882hotmail.com
his mobile numbers are 0426833955 or 0420711359
address 43 Dursill st Guillford 2161

the bank information I sent the money too : Halime mohamad alameddine , st George bank , account : 410652132 , Bsb : 112-879

So if anyone uses any of the details run away before you loose your money too

Ring your bank, see if they can reverse the transaction. Worth a try.

mmm, not sure how good an idea putting all his info up here is. . . . it hasnt even been a week.

i would say it doesn't look like a scam at this stage. . . . its only been 6days. if you transfered money, it can take days to clear, his phone might have died. . . you dont know. . . . i say there is hope yet.

Well the good news is that I just rang the work mobile number, I put 1831 in front so he doesn't have my number, and he answered!
The bad news is that he didn't say it was sold. Which you would expect him to if he had taken a deposit and was honest!
I said I'd get back to him tomorrow to organize a viewing, so I'd give it another shot if I were you.
1831 in front of the phone number makes it come up as a private number

Good luck

I just ran the VIN number you quoted with Vicroads and it comes up as a Victorian registered car so possibly the VIN he gave you is dodgy as well.
