Then I had guy this week on a 2004 smart car wanted me to take it to Mercedes for inspection,,, i said no, so he arranges for RAC to come here and inspect it, nice RAC guy came but as he said the car is 14yr old and guy seems to be expecting the earth,,, he faults it on few bits,, so I have just got e mail off the "customer" who says "I will not be proceeding with the purchase of your smart car due to numerous faults (car was MOT,d Monday) I do obviously expect you to reimburse my £300 RAC inspection fee"  FFS,,, then to cap it all guy just e-mailed me on 99 Bentley Arnage at £20k I am prepared to purchase your car subject to inspection I will want finance over 5 years with nil deposit,,,, how the fcuk does he expect to run a Bentley if he cant find a dipper....

You couldn't make this stuff up could you! One of the reasons we stopped using the local rag, useless tw*ts!! Enjoy your pint and have one for me! Cheers

Sorry first caller offered £1800

"Yes but it's depreciated further since the call! Lost £18,000 on day one so another £300 for several hours sounds possible. Send me your bank details and I will transfer my £50 deposit. I assume you will be happy to hold it for me until payday?"

Life in the city mate. It happens. 

I dont mind the RAC inspections, they’re a bit more sensible than the AA.

I’ve learnt to state via email beforehand, that any inspection they undertake is on them and we are not responsible for the loss of that money if they don’t buy the junk  

Your Bentley guy: can you not strap up for him for a personal loan? Zebra Finance will deal with this for example.  

(Just come back from the pub. My Mrs once again asking me what I want for dinner! You’d have thought that by now she’d stop asking me for an opinion!)

We had our Autotrader account hacked a few years ago and phantom cars and prices put on.  In the several hours until it was sorted we had about 50 calls and several people turned up expecting a 2 year old Evoque for £8k etc.

Had similar a 12 month SAAB Estate should have been £15999 - advertised at £5999 !! had about 50 calls on various cars for couple of days until it got resolved! One lady I couldn't get through to her... No wonder these people get scammed, I said HOW do you expect to buy a car for £6k when the market value is circa £15k - it's just 12 month sold !! #NoWords

Or just get your kebab ready for you with plenty of mayonnaise and lots of salt and vinegar on the chips - FFS, when will they learn, that’s all a bevvied up man wants to eat.

Amazing Umesh - didn’t Saab go pop at least 3 years ago, where can you find these nearly new ones?
