    Only two options I can see. Either it's a scam or it is stolen. If anything has such a big difference compared to the retail product you can be sure something isn't right.

    Oh buy it, you know you want it. How could you possibly not want it, its less than a used Twingo.

    Its too far away for me to consider going to get it - but this add aint alone.

    There are a few going for cheaper than a new whitebook.

    Just making peeps aware!

    They're all scams. Seriously, I don't even think it's worth questioning.

    Yeah we get those kinda ads on this side of the pond on scamslist... Craigslist. Half the time I just mess with them and say I'm interested and get the infamous, I just moved to the UK so I'll have to ship it so give me your money first kinda deal. Maybe this is the exact opposite scam where they just moved to the US?

    Anyways it's just best to avoid those kind of deals. It's not worth the risk.

    Bring £400 in extra cash so you can give change for a £1000 cashier's cheque and meet in the back alley?

    I think I'll pass.
