    I wonder if anyone falls for the scams could sue ebay because they failed to act even after being reported as scams ?

    1) Classified Ad
    2) Too cheap
    3) Email given (you should contact via Ebay)
    4) Some pictures same as an Autotrader advertisment, they have the same crumpled cushion in the lounge. :ROFLMAO:
    5) Both have done exactly the same mileage! (Hint: To find duplicates search on key words on Google - I did "1997 Auto-Sleeper Clubman 2.4 Diesel Volkswagen").

    Cheers

    strange really if its a direct scam, with so much good feedback from both buying and selling. Not good about the direct contact bit, but that happens a lot.

    Account probably been taken over- methods include using the same password on other accounts that have been compromised, has clicked on a fake Ebay email and entered password and userID, has clicked on a trojan on a web page or attachment that has installed a key logger. Lots of ways really!

    Ebay offers advice on it for the many victims.

    Cheers

    Also some of the wording is the opposite way to how we would speak in England. Poor English and grammar. Def dodgy
