    How did you find it Kath?

    Also, the url address doesn't show an obvious deception...but all the usual linls don't work (feedback etc.)

    Also the page design is wrong as the add to watch list is in the wrong place (and doesn't work.)

    The account jnl-auto has been hi-jacked by inl-auto. It's time ebay put some kind of software in to stop this being possible.

    I first noticed the escrow payment like the prev alert on the forum and then clicked the feedback etc
    So for £5,100 buy it now price you get a bottle washer mind you it is a BMW one :Rofl1::Rofl1: also I didnt see add to watchlist
    It does mention on the url identification icon Ebay not encrypted

    Do I report it as i have never done that before

    I'm guessing me and other here reported it.

    I'm sure this guy is the same I've seen post other ads on eBay?
