    Q: car looks good.Is it 100 percent. I am interested. I would like to talk to you on phone. please give me your phone #. Do you have buy now price. Please respond . thanks HK Apr-30-07
    A: Thank you for your kind words. I know it's a good car and it only needs a good home. You can reach me at (772) 621-5325 all day. I am prepared to let it go for 5,500.

    Who wants to call the number and tell him you'll bring cash?[}]

    Thanks.

    Sorry Bob, I guess I was being Pollyanna, I never thought that it might be a scam.

    I have edited a couple of the previous posts to remove live links to the scam auction and its linked page.

    It's a big scam and here's how you can tell. ANYWHERE on the page that you click (not just the photos, even on the white space) you are taken to the same URL, shown below:



    If you examine this, it looks legit at first glance because it does indeed invoke an eBay URL. BUT... look at that third line shown above: there's a command to redirect the user to another page that is specified elsewhere in code with a placeholder. THAT's where they harvest your personal details.

    I just contacted Ebay. It IS a scam[}], they are somehow redirecting the url. Ebay said they are killing the auction.

    I dunno, smells fishy to me. I tried it and it does take you to the "ask the seller a question", but says the user is registered on an Ebay from another country and might not speak your language. Ad says the car is in Georgia and last time I check, they were still part of the good old USA.

    No reserve on a really sweet 48 vert? I'm calling shenanigans on this one.
