Default www.sellittous.co.uk - anyone heard of them?

I've got my car on Gumtree (for about 5 days now) and I received a text today asking if I've sold it yet and if not, visit this website and they'll give me a valuation and make an offer. I've already been contacted by a 'potential' buyer who turned out to be a scammer and I don't want to risk giving these people my contact details.

Anyone heard of them? Are they an alright company? I googled but nothing came up other than their website.

Wait for a real buyer with real money to come along.

If they are real, they would be phoning you rather than engaging in a long winded email scam or trying to buy it off you for half the price.

thanks Foxy. I've just had another text from www.cashyourcar.co.uk! I am quite desperate to sell but perhaps not this desperate!

From the cashyourcar website:

It has come to our attention that users are being sent a text message for a valuation on their car(s) stating that we www.cashyourcar.co.uk[/url]) have provided a quote. Please note that this is NOT us - someone has used our web address in these spam text messages for an unknown reason.

Normal services will resume once we look into this matter further.

Interesting poppasmurf - I should always go with my instincts then.

Thanks for the advice!

If your desperate, Call the scrapman or take it to the local car dealer and sell it to him.

At least he wont charge you a fee to come and look at it. Or say ive got a buyer for that give me 60 and i will pass your details onto him.
What he didnt call. He must have bought one or changed his mind.

Want your 60 back. Keep dreaming.

However it is a straight forward transaction that will get your car sold quickly with a minimum amount of fuss.
Wonder who you work for??

Not a scam? Not registered to a business. Private individual ??

No company address on the website which is a legal requirement.

Where are your companies contact details?

Fact is, you seem to have sent someone an unsolicited marketing text message for a service they had not enquired about and had not given you permission to contact them.

Now you're promoting it on here without the permission of the site owners.

registered to a private individual, not a company.

No or trader company details at all on the website.

Who are you going to contact when it goes wrong?
