    Whilst looking at this I clicked on my ebay and it asked for my login details although I was already signed in. Must be how they hack accounts ?
    Lot of questions on this one (if their real) some one will be caught on this :Angry:

    Yes and if you search on Ebayie its not on there either plus its an escrow payment only, feedback does not work, lots of other disreprances

    Seller is supposed to be in Kent as well

    New scam version which appears to be listed totally outside of ebay

    Nope it is still there, I have emailed my old ebay customer care manager with details etc, if I was at home I could have phoned them direct but I dont have the number handy.

    Is there a previous post somewhere outlinig how to spot a scam on Ebay?
    I don't understand. Apart form the scammers address being far north scotland.
    How do they intend to releave you of money? How do I know it's not genuine Ebay? etc
    Thanks.

    Hi colliezack yep loads on it :thumb:
    but basicaly the scamworks like this
    very cheap van-
    contact via gmail etc
    van usualy far away hoping you will not go to view--works away but needs to sell
    hence very cheap
    asks you to pay via a ebay etc holding account that will only release money to seller after you have van and are happy :Eeek::Eeek:
    this is the scam they send snide email telling you where to pay into holding account :Eeek: no such thing -your monies gone :Eeek:
    (you have completed the deal outside ebay via the snide genuine looking ebay mail )so NO protection from ebay
    variations on this scam so never pay anyone who promises delivery :Wink: unless you pay after they deliver :Rofl1::BigGrin:
    terry
    edit forgot to say most have zero feedback
