    It is thought that many of these scammers are based in Nigeria. Over the weekend I wrote to Ebay (again) about the number of scam 'classified ads' that are appearing. Here is the reply I received this morning. Judging by the grammar (or lack of it) you might think that the whole Ebay operation is based in Nigeria....

    Hello Paul,

    Furthermore, I would like to inform that listing listed under 'Classified Ads' format are for advertisement purpose only. All the transaction of listing listed under 'Classified Ads' format are done off eBay. We have policy in place for this type of format in order to keep eBay a safe and fun place to shop.

    Moreover, the policy remains same for all the sellers on the site regardless of the status of the seller. You will be able to see the changes on the site.

    I think the only points worth noting are that neither vehicles nor classified ads are covered by this protection.
