    Absolutely definitely a scam, ebay is getting quite bad for similar listings. The selling account has probably been hacked.

    It's definitely a scam. Look at the prices.

    Definite scam - this is the genuine listing by 'greywolf106' which has ended:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FIAT-DUCATO-BURSTNER-A-642-2-FEATURES-2-8TD-FIAT-CHASSIS-5-BERTH-/331774105758?hash=item4d3f47189e:g:FS0AAOSwx-9WuemS&nma=true&si=o00bvijxXezTHUbVbN9nxCrzCZk%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    It has now been relisted by 'motorhomedepotcom' with the number plate blanked out and some new photos:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Burstner-...134662?hash=item1a0e3e9f06:g:bj4AAOSwuAVWxMfw

    I've reported it and a few other vehicles on that account and also informed motorhome depot too.

    They asked for a phone number when you message them to see it, then will then do all the 'dealing' via the phone and come up with some scam for a holding deposit I would imagine and then you'll lose it.

    The listing has now been removed, I also had a nice phone call from a lady at Motorhomedepot thanking me for letting them know about it ... they didn't realise until I told them.

    I also took the opportunity to tell her that it was the members of MHFun who find these types of scams and let us all know via the forum, and suggested that she might like to contact Jim with a view to advertising on here as she hadn't heard of Fun!

    Gotta try to keep @Jim in my good books haven't I!
