    thanks both - it was the first item on Ebay's motorhomes page when I had a look earlier, it doesn't exactly fit my bill but at that price I think I'd have been able to overlook a lot! Will put my excitement back in its box now and stick to what I know I want.

    Hi I think its a scam also he says half delivery cost will be met by him does that mean you cant go and pick it up in others words not allowed to see it in my opinion.

    If buying something likea motorhome of ebay id make sure i viewed it first and look at all numbers like vin number engine number and logbook number so you can do a check on it.

    if you click on the view sellers other items there are 4 displayed but all are the same,click on one of the others and briefly you get a different seller id of jdrf ...something rather than 180barrie then it jumps to the 180barrie id as you look at it, infact there are three different ids and item numbers for this vehicle

    Any listing where you have to be an aproved bidder and contact by email are scams, you will also find that the URL is not a genuine ebay one.

    If its cheap and to good to be true.................. its NOT at the end of the day.

    If it was every dealer and his dog would be there long before you.

    Not wanting to sound too thick, but how can that happen then - that it's not on eBay? I know you could knock up a dummy page, but I actually googles eBay this morning, specifically to put in the item number for a motorhone someone is selling further down this forum. That came up fine, so I was def on eBay, all I did then was click the motorhone listing at the bottom of that eBay page n this one was the first that came up. I don't get how it can not be on eBay - if you see what I mean...

    *** NOT ON EBAY ***

    Its a scam.

    There will be, or was, a similar/same item on eBay which was legit. However the page was hacked (probably user account more like) and injected with code redirection so it "flashes" after a second of looking at original (legit) page then diverts to a 3rd party site.

    Notice the URL you pasted is NOT an eBay site.

    Clever but obvious if you know where to look.

    And well done for wondering why it was too good to be true!

    If you have Googled ebay that's the problem. You should always go onto the ebay site at www.ebay.co.uk and use their search facility to find items. By using Google you have searched the web which will bring up the scams

    and that, dear friends, is how to tell if its a scam.

    click the feedback and it'll say 'sorry we encountered a problem'
    click the sellers name and it will go to 'my world' and 'find people'

    the account doesnt exist.
