Default EBay scam. BEWARE

I've found a scammer on eBay. I must say his "uncle" has an awesome collection of cars, even has 3 of the exact same vehicle. Has a nice coupe but obviously not his so I thought I'd share.

Seems to have disappeared.

Maybe a précis with more detail?

Wow they act quick, unusual for eBay. It looks like they have shut down the account. He had 130 listings, all rare and desirable cars and motorcycles. The description stated selling on behalf of my uncle. Any questions please email me on......

Earlier tiday My friend told me he was interested in a mk2 escort 1600 sport for £3500 and thats what got me suspicious. It was a different username and using a different "uncles" name but the description was the same. The account had 0 feedback so I guess he will open another account and do the same.

It reminds me somewhat of a suspicious fella who once was selling parts fro a car that he described as 'lush' and 'well lush', before describing how he'd dismantled his wife's late uncle's prized possession. The very same vehicle described as 'well lush'. Except for the missing bits...

He wasn't buried somewhere near Oxford, was he?

So I've done some investigating and found the username. I believe he is piggy backing on someone's account. This guy seems to have 2 legitimate items for sale, the TT and the boat with proper descriptions. Then the scamming adds keep appearing on his listings then being removed.

Yup complete scam. seller:jasorobinso-12
