Re: watch out for ebay scams

these items appear almost daily on ebay. each and everyone is a scam. i have been in contact with Ebay about similar items and all are hijacked accounts. some even make an account, go get pics of someones car, and then offer it forsale. you pay them the money (coz its 'cheap') and thats the last you here about it.
the Please contact me directly from your e-mail account because the option "Ask Seller A Question" do not deliver the e-mails all the time.is a dead give away as it is. and by contacting them directly from your own email, you are leaving yourself open to fraud as well.
these people should be prosecuted for theft and fraud and should be sent to jail.

Re: watch out for ebay scams

Yes there are a few scams on ebay. One last week or the week B4, a BA GT was being sold for $8,000.... I didn't see it (can't access ebay @ work) but thats what I read.
