  • Same old Scammer on e-bay

    This car appears periodically, with "off-e-bay" transactions only, i.e. no bidding and no protection through e-bay. Last time it was "Wire the money to Budapest... I'm there on temporary assignment"

    I don't know how to let e-bay know about this, but maybe someone else can.

                    I saw the black 53 Champion hot rod listed with a Seattle zip code as the location. I wrote and told him I lived nearby and would like to look at the car. Here is his reply:

                    Hello,
                    Where are you from?
                    First of all I must inform you that I'm located in Austria.
                    I recently moved here with my job and I had the intention to take
                    the car here with me, but I discovered that it is very hard to
                    register a US car here and the taxes are very high. Not to mention
                    that here the gasoline is much more expensive. So, unfortunately, I
                    had to leave the car in the US.

                    The price is $7,400. The car is in excellent condition, no rust, no
                    technical or cosmetically problems. It has no scratches on and hasn't
                    been involved in an accident. The motor runs very well.The car was
                    always garaged. The car is still US registered and the title is clear.

                    The delivery will take between 12 and 15 business days (with
                    insurance and 30 days return policy). I will pay for the shipping! If
                    the car does not matches 100% the description, you will return it in
                    maximum 30 days and I will pay for the return shipping fees.
                    Payment will be made through eBay so we can be both protected!

                    If you are interested please let me know. I have reserved the car
                    for you, but I will need your answer in the next couple of days.

                    Thank you,
                    Tony

                    Sure sounds like a good deal to me, do you think there is a catch?

                        Yeah the "big" catch is that the 1953 coupe sold for $74,000.00 + at
                        the end of May or very eary June 2007. This guy hi jacked the listing,
                        even as the real owner in New Hampshire was selling it, which he was
                        finally able to due....so with this current listing you would be just
                        giving him your good money and he would be laughing all the way to his
                        bank. There are many clues...like very little info on the car, off eBay
                        BIN offer, email seller before bidding, other listings being sold (are
                        the similar in price and description) and with scams, when they reappear
                        as listings, they will use a new Ebay seller id and the list goes on....

                        So beware Don....if it looks to good to be true and it smells fishy,
                        then investigate....or all you will get is: TAKEN!

                        Hope this helped!

                            He used the same e-mail to me (except it was Budapest Hungary) for the red 50 convertible about 6 months ago. He never wants to go directly through e-bay, wants you to wire money to the offshore bank. He even sends facimile e-bay messages indicating that the posting is legit! E-bay denies they sent these!
