    Unless I'm missing something, you don't make it clear how you know this is a scam?

    sorry but that item number is a genuine Ebay auction number and the member is a genuine registered ebayer.

    the payment methods may be fraudulent, or just a way to avoid ebay fee's.

    in any case no money, except maybe a small deposit via paypal etc, should change hands until collection.

    As far as I can see it is a genuine Ebay auction item.

    That's where the genuine seems to end.

    Invoice isn't genuine Ebay.
    His email ID is all over scam warning sites (and it's there for a reason)

    Don't send a penny. Pay on collection only--what are the bets he won't be able to arrange collection?

    i reckon the scammer simply hijacked the genuine ebayers email address and replied to the emails fraudulently.

    the seller have no item , the pictures are stolen and he list using a stolen ebay seller id and password, there are some viruses, that the scamer will send to your email, you are going to download the virus, actually the virus opens a port and connects to a server, from that server with a tinny program, the spammer takes your cookies and web history and cache, also the virus is a key logger so the spammer takes all your passwords and everything, also the virus opens a proxy port, so the scamer with all your web history, cache and cookies, access ebay, post fraudulent items and viola ....
    I'm telling you this because i've seen a post with 3 stolen credit cards from the same guy...
    how the spammer steal your credit card, is very simple, is entering like i've told you before into your paypal account, and delete the card from there, you are forced to place again the credit card details into your paypal account, but with the virus that acts like a key logger they steal all your information's ...
    so keep in mind if miraculously your credit card details disappear from your paypal account, your credit card is about to be stolen .... scan your pc with a antivirus, or take a look on your antivirus exclusion list for the virus ...
    TAKE CARE and stop saying that is a genuine sale, because is not ...

    Is this the only forum you have posted this on? Why have you not warned all other motorhome forums?

    This guy may be well meaning and genuine, and as a relative newcomer to these forums I'm not well placed to be judgemental, but frankly I'm not impressed with his contribution so far - do we tolerate this kind of personal abuse?

    Unless he coughs up his subs, I don't think we'll be hearing from him again anyway, (read only Funster now). :thumb:

    Cheers,
