    Hi
    Look at listing number 110437123852 on ebay for sale at £11,00 and then look at completed listings 260474181394.

    This sought of thing keeps cropping up , can anyone be naive enough to get caught out.

    They keep doing it so someone must make it worth their while

    Cheers Alan (laneside)

    Doubt it as her username and feedback differ but both jaynes and would prob mention time waster etc or offer a reason for the sale again:Blush:

    just though a revenge sale possibly to annoy the owner??

    We see this a lot with bikes.. The scammers are so ruddy stupid though, that the pics used are usually from eBay.com and show yank bikes ( there are certain things that make them easy to pick out usually :Doh: )

    I was browsing ebay last night for MH's and RV's to pass the time whilst hubby was watching shoot em up films.
    Theres a lot of 'bargains' on there.

    but managed to get a refund:Smile:

    I have just purchased a roofbox from there, but due to size we are collecting it in person and offered to pay cash ...not all folk are fraudsters we just have to be on our guard :thumb:
