    They are all scams, the Winnies address is over a take away and is a foreigner.

    Escape is ridiculously cheap, they are £38k new and do not depreciate that much in three years!

    Don't know much about caravan prices :BigGrin:but for sure I wouldn't pay for a van never seen :Smile:
    I haven't much idea how they get paid via p/p but I always thought they had to have a verified address
    ! So it shouldn't be too hard to catch them ?

    My understanding is you pay via PP and they will deliver, giving you assuring that you can get a refund via PP if not happy and you are covered by PP if sale goes tits up.
    Not sure if PP would cover this as it is a hacked account, :Doh: so in effect nothing to do with PP:Smile:
    No doubt if PP had to stand the loss it would not take them long to sort it out.Never been that deep into PP terms and conditions so not entirely sure butno doubt a funster will come along and verifies the t &cs All I can do is my best to spot them and alert funsters so hopefully none fall for the scam-- I am not even sure how to report them to eBay so leave that to others

    Edit possibly another I think
