    So a lesson learned last night, a lovely young man came to buy my Cupra last night.

    He was very polite and even had his cute little daughter with him for added affect.

    The deal was struck (rather quickly, he didn't even dip the oil!)

    I proceeded to count the money as his little girl toddled around my house like she'd been there many times before.

    The charming chap said that 'it's all there pal don't worry' when I lost count.

    And like a complete ****ing mug I took his word on it!!!

    I proceeded to wave him on his merry way and feel good about a deal well done.

    Until I recounted the money, £500 light.

    As you can probably tell, I feel like a right dick!!

    So please, if you come across a chap called Liam from Sheffield who is trying to sell you a white Cupra reg EK57XRT I suggest you walk away, you'll get robbed blind.

    Well lets hope he joins the forum!

    Did you have his details to call him back, you should have his address too from the change in log book?

    And then you and a few mates can pop round and see him and make him pay the difference

    Yeah I did call him and of course he turned it around saying it was all there blah blah, then said that he'd PayPal the money, then when I sent a request he got all up himself and ****ed that idea off.

    I've got an address but it'll just be a scrote house where he gets mail sent.

    I'm of a mind to send the V5 off as scrapped!
