It's like the guy was going out of his way to deliberately make his response as full of BS as possible!

Starting from the beginning:

eBay doesn't have warehouses

eBay doesn't have 'experts'
And therefore don't do inspections.

eBay doesn't do shipping

And of course to add the obvious: $2800 seems to be a favorite price of the scammers. Anybody have a clue why that might be the case? I doubt it's just a number pulled out of a hat.

Oh - where on eBay is the trailer listed? The scam auctions don't tend to list in the appropriate categories.

Mike, he has removed it. It was item 270055981007. It flashes up when you enter the item # in the search.

If you have to ask or it to good to be true... it's probably a scam!

I'd bet that the actual account owner ended the auction as it appears that they are an active eBay account user. Further, this is another one of those fake pages where clicking anywhere on the page takes you to the Yahoo! mail account... pretty crafty crook here!

I quite realize that we are all very friendly being we live next to each other, BUT it is unusual to be flying an American flag in front of one's house if you are living in Canada. I am quite ready to get lambassed for that comment, but maybe it's all that scam thing on ebay. Ok, I will find a corner, but it's so cold I can't break myself away from my electric fireplace/heater.

In my opinion, this thing has SCAM written all over it. It is listed under 'jewelry' and is a three day listing. Not things you would normally do if you were a legit seller. BEWARE! Also, one of the photos shows a glimpse of another molded fiberglass trailer.

I also think there are several more obvious small trailer scams on eBay---three day listings with instructions to email directly and not go through eBay's 'my messages'.

The scoundrels probably think that eBay will not catch them if they put up a three day listing over a holiday, because almost nobody will be working at eBay.

Here is the latest email I received from the seller of the Bigfoot 13:


I will make the transaction using BuySafe services...BuySafe is a third party service used for Internet transactions to make them safer and to protect both parties, the buyer and the seller. You will have a 10 day return policy too so you will be sure that you receive the item exactly as described. I am using their services because i had to leave with business and i couldn`t find somebody else to take care of the transaction for me.
If you haven`t used BuySafe before I will explain how they work:
They already have the item in their custody packed, insured and ready for shipping. They will contact you with all the details of this sale (they will send you an invoice ) and with the payment instructions. You will send the payment to one of their agents that is handling our transaction and after that you will send them the payment information so they can verify It. I will have to make you aware of the fact that i don`t know the agent name because they change it in every transaction for security reasons.As soon as they do that the shipping process will start. After you receive the item you will have a 10 day return policy, in this time you will have to decide if you accept it or not. If you do then you will notify them that you accept it so they can send me the payment. If not, they will give you a complete refund and return the item on my expense. If you have other questions please ask, if you don`t then i will need your full name and shipping address so i can have them contact you with your invoice and payment instructions.

I really hesitate to post this, as it may very well be legitimate, but a buy-it-now of 2900 and no location noted makes me suspicious :

As you can surmise from the length of this thread that scams have become an large industry. Many of the scams are high tech in nature now. eBay, Craigslist, your personal accounts, and on and on are targeted by professional pieces of dung wrapped in human flesh. Old folks are big targets via the telephone. Don't give anyone one ounce of information over the phone. Use a shredder at home one every item that has any family name or number or anything else liked to something that could be used for fraud. At some landfills, inmates work during the day. Trust no one, that's my motto. Unfortunatly the ideal days of yesterday are gone.

I often think of how many bank employees, or service station attendants could get a hold of a credit card number or even your social security number. It will get worse before it gets better. I believe in school they will be teaching the children not only to start saving money and get an education, but the new ways of the world such as fraud and what ever else rears it's ugly head in the future.

But the sun still comes up and goes down and for those that use caution, there is a good life to be had while running the gauntlet of life in 2007 and beyond.

Current bid is up to $5600. Contact only outside of E-bay is suspicious. No location, no title info, real????????????.
