    Never mind all this Tosh, thanks to Terry MY HYMER has now been withdrawn from Ebay, and I was close to a deal as well as per my previous posts.

    Seriously, it would appear that this is now becoming an epidemic on Ebay, and I presume that someone must be paying to insert these bogus adverts, or is it due to their free inserts policy? either way it is becoming a real pain with folk trying to be conned each day and at the centre of it, as one Funster found out a gentleman of African extraction was at the back of the con.

    Hi Dave am I right in asumeing they have also stolen Jane Hardy's ID or simply looked it up to give some credibility ?


    It's all confuseing :BigGrin: I still have no clue how you and other find this info :Doh: but glad you lot do :thumb:
    I have seen a few on the autotrader web site (but no feedback etc,to give a clue) other than the price of the vans :BigGrin: They are all classifieds with ring/email for details.No doubt autotrader will get paid for the adds,but I still wonder about ebay ?If they are clever enough to place the scam adds they may well be clever enough to not pay ?(could make use of info like that :BigGrin:)
    I do know years ago you could get info on the seller off ebay.:thumb:I was selling a big collection of swarski crystal we had saved over 20 odd years and a lady rang me up (xd) she said she had got all my details from ebay :Eeek: again no idea how but she knew my name add and xd phone number :Eeek:

    I have a solution to eBay scammers......
