    :Eek!: Has anyone noticed how many Scams have been running on ebay lately? Anyone falling for one deserves it. Do you agree?

    Oh Yes!
    ebay has badly degraded over the last 12 months.
    Badly/fraudulently described goods etc.
    To be fair there are still some reliable dealers/sellers out there, but also many scammers.
    Anyway, back to the word/music games :Wink:

    Hi John
    No, I have to disagree I'm afraid. Not everyone is worldlywise and sometimes even the experienced can be caught out, so I would always initially feel sorry for anyone caught by a scammer, although some of the stories that I have read do defy belief :Eek!: and you end up thinking "How could you have fell for that", but we all have off days :RollEyes:

    :Frown: Our son Simon fell for a Mobile phone Scam. He SHOULD have known better. Now he checks and double checks. I raised the point because we are currently looking for another Commuter Mini RV. In the last week there has been at least 10 Scammed Motorhomes for sale. They have Buy-It-Now at stupidly LOW prices lower down in the text to contact a certain email address. They are new sellers/ebayers and so have zero feedback. YET, people are bidding. :Eek!:
