Hi is this yet another scam ? ebay iten 230331166634 BEWARE :thumb:
i think if someone was scamming then they wouild make the ad a little more believable.
i reckon its an error and should be £23,500.
and i bet they're kicking themselves :Blush:
Hi John, it has scam written all over it to me no recent feedback / email seller ??? classified add ?? too good to be true
Ebay have pulled the advert, I did email and the reply came not from them but from Ebay who said it was a Hijacked account which had now been returned to its rightful owner. My guess would be a vengeful spouse just trying to cause the owner of the van some hassle. Ad placed using his credit card probably, who knows.
Just emailed him via eBay so we will see.
Still listed as ive just emailed.
of course the reply I got could have been in relation to a previous advert Terry suspected was a scam (was there more than one?), should have checked the numbers I guess, what a trial it is to get old.
When i emailed i asked where can the van be viewed and can they confirm the price of £3500.
This is the reply i've just had;
If you are interested please email me harrystenhouse(at)msn.com
Seems he likes using eBay to advertise....but insists on using a separate email address. Very odd. I replied back saying that i don't do msn and he can tell me the detail via eBay.
Anyone who suspects scam...take heart. Just heard on the news where the guy who invented the world wide web has been scammed himself. Bought something online at Christmas and never received it!
Wel well......here we go. Just had another email now as follows;
