ebay uk

I live in Canada. "Monica" supposedly lived in Canada, got a divorce and moved to UK to be near her parents. She was selling a car on "Autocatch We saw it and it was what we could afford, so I contacted her. She told me she got the car in the divorce settlement ,and the car was presently in St. John's (Newfoundland I thought) Canada and would be shipped to me as soon as payment was received. She wanted to work through eBay Motors "so we would both be 100% protected). I believe now that that "eBay was an impersonator of eBay. Everything sounded honest. EBay Motors send me an invoice, asking me to wire the money to Barclays Bank, Borehamwood, UK. On July 10/12 my bank, Scotiabank, at my request, wired the money to the bank address listed below. I received an acknowledgment from eBay telling me that they would let me know when they got the funds (which were supposed to be kept in a bank account at Barclays until we received and were satisfied with the car). I heard from Monica saying she was arranging to have the car delivered to me. The last letter I got from her read like this:

"From: Monica nocella
Date: 12/07/2012 10:10:36 AM
To: (Personal Information Removed)
Subject: Re: 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT


i have told you today i start the shipping to your address and you will receive all documents.DO you think that is so easy......why you are so nervous ?you will transfer to me this .....please let me make all arrangements and don't press me."

I asked her to keep in touch with me but have heard nothing since that letter. I contacted "eBay" and asked them where my car was - no answer. So, I figure we have been defrauded of our money. I am very angry and will do anything to see that these people are caught. I have copies of everything between Monica, eBay and me. If you need anything else, please contact me and I will try to help you. Let's get these "scammers"!!

We sent the funds to:
