Pennie hope your ok.

Pikz poor lol

I've been sent to bed by dh. Quite glad as I'm just so tiered. Sat propped up in bed now. Wish I could lay down on my side n fall asleep.

On another note. Guy who came to look at car decided not to take it. Said engine sounded funny. Genuinely there is nothing wrong with the engine, so very surprised he came all the way from Glasgow to London and left with out the car. Oh well.

May read for a lil while.

I love your happy updates chasing. I like the fact that non-date guy is being a gent. It's been a vair long time since I had the whole 'does he? Doesn't he?' Stuff and it is stomach turny and exciting

And ouch to poor L pikz. I suspect p did the first time today with her brand new teeth. One minute she was happily nomming her food then suddenly she spluttered food and cried big fat tears.

Ginger we thought same thing. He was here AGES. Called RAC, waiting for them. At which point I said to FH he was prob trying to lower price. RAC guy said car was fine.
I made him a sandwhich! N tea. Felt bad he came so far.

Never mind. All works out in the end as we still have a car.

I've never heard of this scam either.
FH gets email "I'm out of the country on military service, want the car will PayPal u money n send some one to collect it" obviously a more padded out email. FH tells me n I say not to reply yet and let me look into it. We were out at the time so didn't straight away.
FH replies answering a few questions that have been asked. But no personal details. Nxt day he got more emails of similar background. Which he then deleted.

But how do these ppl make money out of this? Pay pal is secure... It's not like the cheques in the post type thing. Or they take the car n cheque bounces.

Dp has gone to the shop for peanuts (otherwise known as "downstairs" - flats in town have their uses!) and I'm hoping he's psychic hmm

Unless you have proof of postage, PayPal will automatically refund if the buyer claims they didn't receive the item. Always take cash on collection!
