ive just had similar. Took a £200 deposit on my RC8R. he's sent me photos of his utility bills etc and i don the same. With a photo of V5 and my driving license. (blanked my DOB and license number) i don't see any harm in V5 photo as it states having V5 don't prove owership. Anyway he is transferring rest of cash today and courier collects tomorrow. I've made clear i want to see funds cleared before end of today if not there is not point the courier coming tomorrow. Seems ligit but i'm nervous until i have all the money and bike handed over
I know the feeling, sad times when you have to be so careful not to be screwed over. Good luck with it.

Is also the buyer being trusting - he's forked out £500 plus the cost of a courier. I don't think I would have done that but it is sad that there are so many scum bags around that you need to think about things.

for sure dealers can charge ownership using just the V5 number, I am not sure whether that requires a special "trusted" status or whether anybody could do the same. I'd suppose no, or we would be hearing a lot of this.

Was looking for a bit of advice.

I have agreed a sale through eBay and the buyer has left a £500 deposit.

Hes now requesting a picture of the v5 to make sure the address matches the one bike courier is going to.

I can't help but feel uneasy about sending a picture of my logbook can I be scammed?

Anyone with experience of this?

Thanks.
It'll be wazza, tell him to sling his hook.
