    Scammer definitely. The green surround to the photo is a dead giveaway, they've been using that for years. Payment by escrow!!!, no contact seller link, no feedback available. etc. etc. and of course a ridiculously low price!

    Real account holders name is waynemartynb989 and the scammers hijack name is waynemartynd989. Blink and you miss it!

    If you press your escape button quickly (before it swops names) it freezes the listing and you can press the report button to report to Ebay

    open the link, close the page then open the link again.

    the page miraculously changes format in a split second.

    click the sellers name......no profile

    click the sellers feedback......encountered a problem....cos there is no feedback as the seller doesnt exist in ebay.

    How does that work then ?

    i sent the message to waynemartynb989.......the genuine seller, as there is no contact info for the scammer as he isnt on eBay anyway.

    For what its worth,i live near Abertillery and I saw the motorhome on the side of the main road there not much more than 2 weeks ago,I cant remember the exact price but it was 10 or 11 thousand. Tomorrow I am passing Abertillery so I will stop by and have a closer look and let you guys know the score,I will get the phone number if poss.

    Dear waynemartynb989,

    Hi, are you aware someone has hijacked your Motorhome listing page.

    the Pseudo-members user ID is waynemartynd989...note the altered 'd'

    - pappajohn0



    Dear pappajohn0,

    I'm aware that you are aware that you are an as......
    is not a hijacked account !

    - waynemartynb989





    Dear waynemartynb989,

    you misunderstand, i know you are the genuine account holder but someone else has hijacked your listing.....unless you really do have a buy it now price of just £5100 and only accept pre-approved bidders.....which according to your genuine listing you don't.

    your choice if you believe or not but its been reported to Ebay as a fraudulant listing by others, so they will undoubtedly be in touch with you in due course.

    Oh ! there are two S's in ass.

    - pappajohn0




    Dear pappajohn0,

    nobody has hijacked my listing ...
    I'm waiting for ebay to contact me without any kind problems ...
    and if you have noticed the ... after the as you will see that ive used 2 ss, so bye bye

    - waynemartynb989



    you just cant educate pork :Doh:

    he's in for a nasty surprise i reckon !!!!
