  • BEWARE! Fraudulent Ebay Seller-'58 President

    I just received an email from Ebay regarding a seller, '25260museum', who has a 1958 Studebaker President Hardtop advertised on Ebay (item #150128007198). He lists it as a 'President Lark Gold'. I emailed this seller asking about the reason for the salvage title, how extensive the damage was to the car and to let him know the car is NOT a Lark. He did respond, saying only a door was hit and that the title says [u]it is a Lark</u>; so there!! Ebay was aware of my correspondence with '25260museum', emailed me a lengthy letter to tell me this seller is not entirely legit and is being investigated for some kind of internet fraud; so beware. I know the car was just bid up to $11,200.00, did not sell and is now relisted again. Spread the word so no one gets taken!

    I got a Buy It Now offer for 11K, but passed. I'm not sure he's not legit, might just have title issues.

        That explains my second chance offer at my high bid of 11K against a over 15K reserve.

            Well, it certainly is possible that the account was high-jacked. The car is showing on my 'watch list' as we speak. Is this listing for real or a bogus one?? Wish the owner would put more details in the listing about this car and let potential bidders know there have been some problems with their account listings.

                It is back out there, but under item number 150129538052 rather than the 150128007198 listed in the original post.

                        Examining the grammar in his listings, I don't think this person speaks English as a first language, either. FWIW.

                            We got an "interesting" E-bay notice. It came as a notice from "E-Bay" it opened up by saying Good Morning Epeel217, there is a problem with your account, blah blah blah.

                            Ellen's screen name is Epeel2, so I had her forward this letter from E-bay to Spoof at E-bay.

                            A return letter came saying

                            Dear Ellen, the letter from E-bay was not fraudulant........etc.

                            We both looked puzzeled as Ellen does not have an E-bay account.

                            Something is wrong somewhere.
