    Just another scam.

    You think you are looking at ebay.co.uk but look at the website address:


    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk-ws-ebayisapi.dll-cars-motorcycles-and-vehicles.[HI]global-tradingonline.com[/HI]/ws/ViewItem&Item/2002%20Fiat%20Caravans%20International%20Riviera%20141%20Motorhome/2002%20CARAVANS%20INTERNATIONAL%20MOTORHOME%20FIAT%20RIVIERA%20141%20CARAVAN%20DIESEL.htm

    That's the website you are going to.

    I guess that you found that vehicle by searching on Google or some similar search engine.
    You will only be certain of getting a genuine eBay item by entering the eBay website first and then doing a search from their own search box.

    Lots of links on the fake page do go to genuine eBay pages but the important ones, (feedback, in particular), don't work.

    Never go to eBay from an search engine link!

    that was the worrying thing. I went on My Ebay, signed in, and then searched for Motorhome and that is what I got?

    And a WHOIS lookup to find out who owns the website name gives:

    What do you mean by that?

    Where did you click on ebay?
    Is it in your bookmarks (or favourites)?

    If you are being directed to that fake page, you are not on ebay!

    Damn!

    I was going to buy that!

    It was for pre-approved bidders only so I would have sent him a newly created email address 'baisemoncul@gmail.com' then offered the full asking price.

    Oh, the fun one can have stringing along scammers...

    This listing is restricted to pre-approved bidders or buyers only. Email the seller and ask to be placed on the pre-approved bidder/buyer list.



    warning This seller is currently away until 12 April 2011. If you make a purchase, there may be a delay in processing your order.

    Always the giveaway, pre-aproved bidders means its a Scam, second bit means there will be a long delay in getting your goods or money if ever!

    definately a scam Paul.

    easiest way to check is to click on the user name to the right of the price box.....if its a genuine ebayer their details will be displayed in the following page (my world)

    also click on their feedback score below their screen name...if its not genuine it will say there is a problem and what would you like to do next ?
    if it is genuine it will show there feedback

    check these details in your original link and you'll see that one is a genuine seller but some scroat has cloned the details to their scam page.



    this isnt 100% foolproof but is an easy starting point.
    if they can set up a false web page they can also set up a false feedback page...but none ever seem to bother.
