Check out this website.  I was directed to it by the seller in an ad for a 918 Spyder on autoscout24.com

www.porschecenters.co.uk


The seller said the dealership would handle the transaction if I sent him everything including my drivers licence.  I rang the number and confused the hell out of the very unBritish sounding guy who answered the phone by trying to book my Boxster in for a service.

Here's the ad. Feel free to bombard him with idiotic questions.

I wonder if the real dealer at Solihull has been advised of the scam yet....?? 

Looks like the scammers have gone to a lot of trouble to setup the fake page etc.  Very similar to the real page for Solihull with different contact numbers

I've reported it to Porsche Cars GB who have handed it to their legal team. I emailed the seller to suggest he move house.

There's a few mistakes in the website, plus the not so british contact number, plus when you google the number it comes up with a number of other sites with different spellings.

Nice try.
