    Years of practice spotting em ::bigsmile:
    When a van is advertised for 4k when it's worth 12k it stands out :Smile: look for buyers feedback and generally it's a knicked account usually with no recent purchase history, then they sometimes put a g, mail to contact them.Ask you to pay into a holding account until they deliver then you release money from holding account but it's too late as soon as you paid money into holding account money was gone:Eeek:scammed account and no such thing as holding account -lots of other ways as well read below on the ebay link below my name

    :Angry:
    This does make me a tad 'miffed' when people like us can spot them and then ebay removes them after reporting - why the hell doesn't eBay spot this type of scam, it would be easy to write some code that picks up on the usual tell tails on insertion, they could then investigate further.
    Or - are they just not worried as long as they get their fees,,,,, in some way.
    And this is just motorhomes.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrr:Angry:

    Trikeman. :winky:
