    Always look @ feedback
    Buy from top sellers

    For vehicles if they specify call before bidding or email me your details its a scam stay away & report the listing.

    Message from Bundesvan.

    No, it's a scammer cloned my ad. I've reported it to EBay but they haven't deleted it yet. Take a look at his other items. It looks like he's scamming 55 other items!

    No longer a registered user on eBay when I checked this morning:thumb:
    He had only been a registered user since 29th May 2014:
    At least he won't be scamming anyone on eBay now.

    Sorry to tell you but he will be back under yet another name. The same list of vehicles were on last week under another seller name. They just keep on trying hoping to con someone before they are removed.

    Thanks

    Thank you all very much for posting about ebay member zama_taher - it saved me potentially being scammed by him!

    I asked him via ebay about the location of the VW T25 he was selling, and he came back to me a few days later via text, asking for my email to talk if I was still interested in buying the van. (I had no idea someone would be able to obtain my number from Ebay) I gave him my email and then went to look back at the ebay listing, which had had gone from ebay. Then i received an email telling me he would deliver the van to my door for a suspiciously cheap price.... I googled his ebay name and found your thread about him, which saved me potentially going any further in contact with him, then I found the van was someone else's listing which he had stolen. Scary stuff!

    I have attached the email he sent me, he said his name is James Callaghan, email jc65671@gmail.com - i hope he doesnt manage to steal someone's hard saved van money!
