    considerably underpriced, no location other than uk is ever put down,payment terms are iffy, no rating or history on seller, this seller has been trying to sell several other vehicles and all keep getting removed, obviously wen they get rumbled as non existent !! just saying:winky::winky:

    Hi Bryan,Soul buddies is spot on,The seller is also asking for the buyer to contact through a Gmail account (also against ebay policey) read below :winky:
    It would do no good, they simply send another email asking you to pay them through a spoof ebay acredited account saying you pay ebay who holds money until they delivery van you then let ebay releasr the money-because the acc,is spoof they already have money -search te last few days on scams to get a fuller pic

    Every one of the ten vehicles the seller is advertising is in a different format and style...none with a BIN and all but one with the addition of his Gmail addy (which is slightly different in each listing) and instructions to email for info.

    assumed name...Gareth Jones of Leicester

    its about time EBay started blocking accounts being created from the same IP address. or at least put a level of security into signing up that possibly included a credit card payment that gets refunded after 30 days. that way you can prove its a REAL application, not just another scammer.

    it appears that the Nigerian scammers based in Holland have moved their target group of mugs to catch out motorhomers who have an image of being predominantly retired and have cash to spare.

    the honest answer though is that they still play on people being inherently greedy or dishonest, wanting to get something for a fraction of its true value. thats one reason why they are normally easy to spot as being fake
