Thanks, Tracy. I might do as you suggest, not that it will stop this person. It could, however, give me some satisfaction about fighting back, however feebly.

I sure hope no one is taken in by this scammer.

I would certainly report it, or he will just take up shop under another user name.

The IP from his email originates in Romania: [b]84.247.60.117

He is using Earthlink to send mail IP: [b]209.86.224.47

I have been messing with him email for the past 2 days baiting him. I finally let him know I was on to him. He disappeared pretty quick, but I am tracking him down and reporting him to various government agencies.

Fishy ebay listing with a day left

This 1972 Boler is on eBay right now: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...mMakeTrack=true. In his description he says the height is 6'6" with the top "down" and 8'6" with the top "up". Someone posted a question to him about this and he aplogized and said he got the height info off of "a website". This still seems fishy to me. If he has this Boler, wouldnt he notice the roof doesnt do anything? If he was selling if for a friend, wouldnt he still notice if there was somehting about the roof raising and lowering? Anyone else got a problem with this one?

Most of the phoney ones are with a price that's too good to be true.
This price is to true to be good. Or it's a little pricey for what it is.
And he is communicating via Ebay so that somewhat of a good sign.

Looks legit to me. There's a phone number - give Lisa a call!

Interesting, though - if you Google the phone number it brings up a current Salem, OR Craigslist ad for a Compact, which DOES have a pop-top.

http://salem.craigslist.org/rvs/187375341.html

I would assume they got the two ads confused. Wonder why they have 2 eggs for sale? Dealer?

Albany, Or., which is where the trailer on ebay is located, and Salem, Or. are in the same area.

Craigslist probably doesn't have an Albany faction. It isn't a thriving metropolis.

Thanks. The easiest way to put them out of business is to dialog with them (documentation) and get their IP address from the headers of email. Even if the guy used a proxy to hide his location he can be found. I figure this guy has scammed so many people with his fake squaretrade site, that it's worth a little effort to tail him and report him.

This guy wanted my name/address bad! lol wonder what he would have done with that?

Don't know this for sure, but when my Surfside was on Portland OR Craigslist in early June, there's a fellow in Albany that was selling various "eggs" both on Craigslist and on ebay simultaneously--I called them. Didn't know too much about the trailers they had listed -- didn't say on ebay that they were listed locally for sale. Someone on this forum actually went to see one of them, a Perris Pacer, reputed to be...

I think they "buy and sell" without much interest in them -- just the $$$

Just got an email from homestead.com and they have shut down his squaretrade-case.com site. The other day it would bounce you to the main page of ebay to access his auctions. I tried the site just now and I get:

<div align="center">

[b]Sorry, the site you requested has been disabled


</div>

Email response to my complaint:

Thank you for bringing this situation to our attention. As a passive

[b]Therefore, prior to your complaint, we were unaware that this site was

Thank you again.

It pays to be pro-active and shut them down. Websites don't have the staff to monitor all the sites on their servers.

thx guys. Internet fraud is no joke and the only way to stop it is to get involved. It took very little effort to get this guy. Let me know if you find others that have stolen your ads. That just crosses the line! lol if it were me I would be ripped
