A MAN claims he bought a second-hand car on Facebook Marketplace and made more than £800 profit in less than 24 hours.
The expert car flipper took to social media to reveal the decent sum he made after selling a second-hand Citroen C1.
TikTok user @fliping247 described how he spotted the small C1 supermini advertised for £950, but after some savvy negotiating managed to pick it up for £850.
The 2007 motor had covered around 83k miles, and the poster goes on to boast that he put the car back up for sale the very same day for £1,750.
Amazingly, an interested buyer was in contact within 24 hours, and the sale was agreed at the advertised price.
On his video @fliping247 says that he spent just £10 on a car wash and £15 for insurance cover, which brought his total spend to £875.
