My one problem is that distance keeps me from my Elan. (36/5395)

Hi John,

This is a good idea. Don't know where Melon.28 lives but maybe you two could arrange something. I am willing to offer a reward if you or Melon.28 get hold of the car.
Hope to hear from you!
Johanna Doblhofer lives at: 9 Utting Avenue East City, Liverpool L11 1DQ. UK. Google street view does not show this address. This is where the car was collected by EKM-Express who took the car to London to their depot. From there the car was to be shipped to Holland.

Hi Melon.28
This is exactly the same e-mail I got from "her".

Regards, Ray

Utting Ave East exists; perhaps Worzel could do a drive-by to see what number 9 looks like?

It is very doubtful that the car even exists.

Why a drive-by?

It's all on Google Maps - with street view...

I think you will find that Johannah is in fact a large Nigerian gentleman. The car I'm sure does exist (somewhere) but it has never been owned by Johannah or her alter ego. The Liverpool address is made up or is a close enough approximation to cause confusion - the Google Street view is of a terraced property without a garage (so where if it exists is it stored?) that will have nothing to do with this fraud.

The best you can hope for is for someone to lure the perpertrator to a meeting to view the car which will doubtless be somewhere off the beaten track (with suitable excuses as to why) in order to rob the victim. With Police help you just might outsmart them and get an arrest but it is still doubtful you will ever see the money and you will never see the car. An arrest is probably the best you can hope for and if they bail him/her they will never be seen again courtesy of our wonderful British Court System and Human Rights Act - (thanks Tony and Gordon)

Did you not see my analysis of the website owner some postings back.

It is more likely that 'she' is an Italian or Sicilian possibly with 'Family' connections.

In response to numerous innuendoes concerning my original post on this subject,
my comment about dual identities was never intended to imply that elan people on elan.net would use this site to scam other long term members. I wrote what I wrote to see what happens when I question a first time poster explaining a scam. The internet is a whole lot less dependable than an Elan.

May i refer you to your 1st post on 9th Sept. Eric?
I think that you Sir gave birth to the "innuendo" here, innocent members such as myself had their curiosity aroused & were sucked in by your good self, intentionally or not, with the reference to the supposed use of "dual identities" on here.
