    His feedback score is 20,000+ and if you look at his other items he's listing another 3 identical vehicles :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Duly reported..
    The actual item number is 200617481947

    And of course as always the same low life scum bag is operating the scam..

    Bought time someone found him and fed him drain cleaner

    It's not on ebay it's on jlwd.co.uk

    If you want to search ebay for vehicles go to
    http://www.ebay.co.uk
    Then use their search facility. Don't use google or bing to search for vehicles on ebay.

    If you already know this I apologise but quite a few people seem to use search engines for ebay for some reason and the search engines can be played to allow scams like this.:cry:

    I can't see how it's done but know it's not Ebay---I am not signed in wheras it would always say "hellp Bo********" (my ebay name)
    I clicked on ask a question and it is a total different format to Ebay's.

    Can't see how you can report it to Ebay as it's not on their site.

    But as you say, obv. a scam.

    As this is not the first time I have seen this domain used for scamming I have contacted Nominet. (I am a member with voting privileges ) I have also contacted the hosting provider's abuse dept.

    Hopefully something will come of it.

    Simple if you know how.. The advert is on eBay and when you open the page it jumps straight to the scam page

    The original advert has been reported..

    Hope that helps

    Ad has now disappeared. i also reported it to Ebay.

    I'm learning so much on this site!!! Buying a m/h alone not looking quite so scary now.
    Thanks for all your tips and warnings--much appreciated by this novice.

    Nominet are dealing with the fact the owner of the domain has the domain registered as an individual and has privacy mode switched on. This is not allowed for domains used for business purposes. He will either be forced to turn off privacy mode or remove the business from the site I am guessing.

    I am still waiting to hear from the hosting provider. If nothing comes of it I will contact enom and see if they can take action.

    I have heard from the hosting provider...

    This is a step in the right direction but not enough in my view. I will be asking them to disable the subdomain with ebay in it to prevent it happening again.

    My conversation with nominet has resulted in them changing this to a non private registration. The whois now shows his contact details.

    Registrant:
    Jialin Zhao

    Registrant type:
    UK Individual

    Registrant's address:
    8 Peterstow Close
    London
    London
    SW19 6JW
    United Kingdom

    I will look into finding out more to see if we can get him to stop hosting ebay scams. It is possible he doesn't know about it....
