Administrator - how to report classifieds ad?

OK i tried with no luck to find someone to email or contact. Yesterday a featured trailer was a 1980 trade wind 25 in Florida for $2000

This trailer looks to have just sold on eBay
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1980-Airstream-/301736000872

Maybe save someone and take down the ad if its still up! Thank you -

What is your correlation between the 2 trailers. One is in Fl. and the other in Ohio. One is for $2,000 and the other for $13,000.

Where did you see the "featured" trailer?

Yes there are many scams going on with respect to Airstream trailers.

If the ad for the $2000 trailer is still up please use the Report This Ad button on the ad page, just above the Description.

They sent me a link to photos for an eBay hosting site, which i found went with the sold trailer - they now live out of state, don't know details, below market by a long shot, etc etc

Scam

Yes, I too saw the listing and contacted the sub on the classified add section of this forum for the 1980 trade wind 25 in Florida for $2000. I did get a reply with a sob story of why she was selling the trailer so below value so I researched it a little more. She sent me a photo link called jpegbay that was supposedly tied to eBay. Contacted eBay on line fraud site for the photo link and they sent me this link:

http://community.ebay.com/t5/Archive...aq-p/17200115/

Strange how the exact trailer was on eBay later as above post mentioned.

Thanks for researching.

I also called and emailed about this trailer. When I received the "sob story" as well, I wrote back that I was aware of scams and would send no money without talking to a person first. The telephone number had a "text voicemail msg. I received nothing further.
