New Fraud on Ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...atchlink:tops

Update:
TKO by ebay in 24 hours, they are getting a little faster, used to be up two days after you reported them.

This one was an account take over with outside e mail .html links and using some old pictures of a Casita on ebay long ago.

item # 150125330434
Will see how long it takes for ebay to take this one down.
Included a part of the add with typical fake BIN and wanting off ebay contact. It is also mis listed out of e bay motors.

OK, Ebay aka Fleabay is getting much faster, they are both down.
The part of the add I included in the post is very typical, they want contact off of ebay so they can continue the scams. Also the items are often mislisted with fake BIN prices and free shipping.

It does appear that it's a scam. I suggest that you report it to ebay as a scam. eBay won't pull it until they think it's a scam. The more people that report it, the more likely it will be removed before somebody gets hurt.

Wow! After checking out his post, I would have thought it was real. I can see where people get stung! Especially with his concerns about bidders with less than 15 feedbacks.

So if someone didn't know better how would this scam progress. I mean seriously, how does he get away with it?

Warmly,

Laurie

I always report them to ebay first. Used to take fleebay 2 - 3 days to take them down, they are faster now, about 24 hours.

There is another fake on fleebay today also.

They will make up several fake listings, get folks to respond to them and then work the con. End game, get people to wire money to somewhere in East Europe.

Often they hijack or take over someones established account.

I'm scared of EBAY! About got scammed on that same trailer a couple months ago! So glad there was enough "fishiness" about it to make me call a couple friends and get their advice. I feel so sorry for the innocent who will lose money in this. Hope you reported it. I'll do it now too if it's still there.

If it seems to good to be true? Guess What?

Some give aways: To low fake BIN price. Free shipping for a trailer. Wants e mail contact off of ebay.

Never put down a deposit unless you are using paypal. Never Never wire money no matter what. A legit 2nd chance offer will show up on your my ebay page.

I got my Scamp FW off of ebay, lots of legit offers. Paid cash on the spot, both buyer and seller were happy.

Yes I did report this one to ebay because I didn't like how you couldn't view photos and other things on that page (it looked fishy to me). So I told them to check on this one.
I see they did look into it and they took it off! I'm glad so no one will get taken on this one.

Anybody else think this could be a scam?


Only $3900 "Buy It Now" price. I am about ready to get sucked right in (although I have read all the posts about scams so know what not to do. After all these stories on this site, yesterday my 24 year old cousin told me a story about a friend of his that tried to buy a motorcycle off E-Bay, wired the money into an escrow account, and never saw the money or the motorcycle ever again. Poor kid was out $3,000.

Anybody on this board ever get a REAL deal like this?

Oh wait-an even better deal-a 2004 Casita Freedom Deluxe Camper Scamp (their title, not mine!)for $2900

http://cgi.ebay.com/04-SCAMP-CASITA-16-TRA...1QQcmdZViewItem

OK-I give up and am ready to accept that these both are a total scam.
