After viewing the car, one of the men handed the keys back to the victim but had swapped them with another set and it wasn’t until they left that the victim realised and called the men to tell them. They said they would return to buy the car but when they did not turn up the victim moved the vehicle to another location.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Lee Dix, based at Oxford police station said: “I urge people to be vigilant when selling vehicles online and checking they have the correct keys returned to them when they let people view their vehicles.
“You can make a report online or by calling 101 and quoting reference 43200332177.
“Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
