    as Roger says...another scam.

    and the reason you cant use the back button.....there is no page to go back to !

    i think any eveilbay webpage that states 'Pre-Approved bidders only' is not genuine.
    some say you must contact seller if you have limited feedback...that appears normal.

    you will also find there is no detailed feedback page for the 6000+ items the seller has supposedly sold

    I was just bringing it to everyones attention.

    I am seeing so many of these that the site is getting to be a risky joke.

    Fast coming to the opinion that the only safe way to buy is to use a trusted dealer, no matter how far away it is...... and I can only think of one I would trust.

    Might see you soon Peter.

    Go on, that bit of crawling has to be worth a 50k discount on your Kon Tiki

    The original ad is on ebay but somehow it forwards to an ebay-like address, how can this be done?

    Is there a trojan/ virus/ malware item loaded onto your PC now?


    BTW ran Malwarebytes clean after visiting the page.

    Regards

    How do they do it ? No idea.

    Hopefully ebay dont know how they do it either..... otherwise there is no excuse for allowing it to continue.

    These are being signalled on FUN quite frequently and it is quite disturbing ( to me anyway )

    Sorry to offend, but I always state "Zero rated bidders will be removed". I tend to find that they are kids with nothing better to do. They chase your goods up to closing day then disappear. Just time wasters.:shout:
