    if you are unsure if an ebay auction is a scam simply click on the sellers feedback or profile.

    feedback will come back as 'sorry, we encountered a problem'
    and profile will go to 'my world' with no profile.

    a genuine auction will show feedback and the sellers profile.

    Really looks like an ebay page though, only the url (and the %) give it away.

    it doesnt go through to the ebay shop either when you click on it and looks like the scammer might have a bite already

    looks like one person, Andy, has been sucked in....

    he's made a full asking price offer and its been accepted.

    see 'ask a question' at the foot of the listing.

    MUG ! :Doh:

    large (and obviously none returnable) deposit up front via western union probably
    the [STRIKE]seller[/STRIKE] scammer has agreed to work out a delivery quote which if agreed will be the 'deposit' :Doh:

    why cant folks see that a £20k+ motorhome isnt going to be sold for a mere £5k.....sheer greed, thats why.:Angry:

    Its not on the ebay site. It is a subdomain of
    http://www.jlwd.co.uk
    Instead of www. it has

    http://cgi.ebay.co.jlwd.co.uk/

    He will have entered all this himself and the question/answer at the bottom are just there to make it look more authentic and make you rush into making a better bid.

    Karl

    PS: how did you find this listing please?

    Norton wouldn't even allow me to look at the page!! It just came up with a big flashy screen telling me it 'Suspicious Site Blocked' and telling me to press exit to leave the screen.
