    The first four tractors & the NH combine belong to a local place near me.
    which is near the scottish borders & a heck of a long way from this lot in KENT
    and as if that wasnt bad enough why are they all so cheap?

    Anyone know this company?

    Looking at the prices I'd say scam, most of them are way too cheap for what they are, but there are also some true value tractors to maybe throw you into doubt.

    I know the yard that the postcode in the "contact us" section and I'm sure no one is running a business like that there....
    Also the area code for there phone number is wrong for the location hmm

    Edit:
    I'll be passing there probably tomorrow, I'll have a better look....

    Don't feel confident after looking at the directors and their history.

    I reported the website. Reported every advert I seen and sent them a few polite :blackeye: e mails..... And they have actually removed my listing from 'harp plant'. Surprised to say the least !

    Who do you report it to?
    If it was an eBay advert, that would be easy enough, but who polices the Internet?

  17. They will follow up and call you eventually. They priorities cases obviously where folk have actually lost money (and some of the amounts are jaw dropping), rather than reporting newly appeared bogus websites, so unfortunately reactive rather than proactive.
