A gang which set up a fake eBay car auction robbed the would-be buyer at gunpoint when he met to close the deal.

Shahzad Ali Shah, 23, agreed to meet the “seller” in Dagenham after successfully negotiating to buy the Mercedes Benz Kompressor C180. Shah felt “assured” by the vendor’s 92.3 per cent approval rating and agreed to pay for the vehicle in cash after he demanded hard currency.

Going to close the deal the robbers where waiting for him and robbed him of £5,580 plus Shahnaz’s purse, phone, and credit cards.
