There was a cheap senna on e-bay a couple months ago. The guy posted it was in MN or something. I e-mailed him and told him I'd come pick it up. He then said it was a typo and it was in the UK. Was I interested? :blah:
I will notify ebay that some tw** is scamming their system, but not straight away as I think Rockethouse is going to wind him up first. We all know its a scam, but I hope some poor innocent bugger doesn't send any money to these fraudsters.
No. I haven't been in touch with the guy, but I recall the locale being York, England which is (you've guessed it!) 25 miles from me. Never seen a Tambo out on the roads last summer around here, but then again I think it only had 37 miles on the clock or something like that. Many thanks to Olive for flagging it up in the first place. Hey, on a different tack, that current bun is out here again, honest! Just in time for my holidays.!
Yep, this happens all the time. They either ask you to pay via western union or send you an "official" looking ebay email and direct you to pay a 3rd party. I have had several of my muscle car listings hijacked by these idiots, they steal my pics and my description and try to sell a 60k 1963 Fuelie vette for 5k with another ebay account. They get the accounts with positive feedback by sending out "official" looking ebay emails that state that "ebay needs to update your user name and password." Dont get scammed, if it looks too good to be true, it is!
