    And of course there is the point that it is not actually an eBay page !! It is, 100% a scam

    To be fair Terry...many years ago there was a nearly new jaguar for sale in our local rag for £50, thats right £50! It turned out that the woman selling it had found out that her husband of many years had been cheating on her and moved in with a much younger woman. She therefore sold off his pride and joy to the first person to come round with £50 in their hand.

    I think they got a bargain dont you?

    This may, or may not be a scam you cannot tell over a distance...

    The original eBay page has an item number of 370490404410
    It has no buy now option ( as that would have added to the cost of placing the ad ) and the account has been hijacked..

    Off to report it to fleabay ( the ever diligent bunch of incompetent twats who could not spot a scam if it was pasted to their foreheads !!!! )

    The surest way is to click on the eBay rating and it will return that there was a problem and Ebay were not able to trace.

    A similar scam was a MH being sold at a similarly ridiculous price in Spain. The scam is they want you to pay them something up front. Chances are you will never see them or the deposit you paid

    Its a scam, note the web address, if ever in doubt always check the sellers feedback as these sort of scam listings will never go to the 'sellers' feedback on ebay, also if the item is restricted to registered buyers via email.

    http://d69021.u36.c9.ixwebhosting.com/cp/ViewItem&Item/02%20Fiat%20Motorhome%20CI%20Riviera%20141%20Caravan%20vw%20Camper%20Van/02%20Fiat%20Motorhome%20Caravans%20International%20Riviera%20141%20Caravan%20vw%20Camper%20Van.htm#payId

    This is a genuine ebay web address (ok its one of mine but it was easier!)

    nearly new jaguar for sale in our local rag for £50


    I can better that, someone I know in Huddersfield found out her hubbie was cheating on her so sold his BMW for a £1, the guy that went to buy it first went to the police first to see if there would be any comeback if he bought it and was told if thats the selling price well snap it up :Rofl1:, she also sold his golf clubs for the same money and burnt his designer clothes.

    The same scam appears over and over again. Always the sub-title has the price mentioned as a buy it now with lots of +'s and other symbols between every digit. Been reported to ebay countless times but nothing stops them.
