Guys, i've been looking to buy a 2000 GTS for the longest time now, and i've found some decent prices in my area (around $10k) but i found a woman in london who is selling her 2003 GTS 6 Speed for $8,000. There would normally be no problem with this, but she insists on a western union deposit of $2,000, then she would pay for the shipping of the car over to the states. She says the only reason she is selling the car so damn cheap is her daughter recently had a kidney transplant, and she simply needs the cash.
My only concern is that direct western union deposit...any thoughts?
DON't GET IT.
I know a friend who was going to buy a supra from london for 8000$.
And he paid half of the car to ship it to US. And the car never came and the guy never answered back. And you can't really do anything about since, its in other country.
We told him not to get it, it sounded too cheap for TT supra and it was out of country. I personally don't even trust if it was out of state.
You should buy a car thats around your area. not only you get to see the car first, you are sure that car is there and make better deal.
