In short, no!
Carsguide do not recommend buying or selling privately without first arranging an inspection of the vehicle.
If you are concerned or unsure about the legitimacy of an exchange, please contact our Customer Service Team. Alternatively, you can forward the email chain to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily take a look and let you know if the concern is warranted.
If you have transferred money to a buyer or seller which you believe to be fraudulent, please contact your financial institution and local police as a matter of urgency.
