“Should be called autocar fraud”

Written on: 15/10/2013

Placed an ad here and had only scammers, popinjays and fraudsters contacting me. I had to remove my email contact long before the ad ended. Very expensive and Auto Trader don't seem to do anything about this problem. My car did sell, but not from this site. I cannot recommend using auto trader, as a private seller, until they address this serious issue. They do let you put up a good ad, but considering that it is online only it is very expensive. The site that the car sold from was free to advertise!!

They also provide feedback about numbers viewing your ad, but you do not know whether the visitors are just wandering computer crawlers or real people.

If it were £10 for the 2 weeks I'd say it was OK, but at £36 it is very poor value.
