That has to be the same person with the $17K bid on ebay. The phone numbers are the same.

I let the real account holders know about the BMW and Bambi, the Beamer has been yanked, and the Bambi will be soon. The only reason it isn't gone yet, is it also is a real auction running concurrently.

New Tactic on Airstreams

This won't be on for long -- #4609441937.

It's a modified tactic. A buy it now on the Bambi that was listed this week from Frisco.

There are two answers to seller's questions that do the email scam. The "junkmail" and email scams aren't in the body of the listing.

The sleazeball's back.

Question This is all fun, but.....

With almost 4700 views and almost 170 posts, this thread is entertaining...
but does it not make you question ebay as a safe marketplace to buy and sell?

You make think as a Seller that your identity or item you are selling could not be hijacked for scam purposes......

You may think as a Buyer that you are wise enough to avoid being taken by a scammer......

But, since the majority of the interest here is on Airstream, clearly this is a fraction of a single percent of the fraud occurring on a daily basis.....

Subject for a new thread.......

Do YOU feel safe buying on ebay the way things are right now....
Not last week, or last month, or last year.....
Now.

Do YOU feel safe having your bank or credit card information on file with Paypal? (an ebay company)....

Well I for one have been diligently watching alot of the AS auctions and just like everyone else can sniff out the fakes. Having a watchful eye and a good memory is a bonus....I can even remember the feedbacks for some crazy reason and be able to trace back when there have been crossbiders...i.e.....guy in Fla in particular selling and buying off of different names and relisting under another.....you just have to do your homework. I for one would pay cash for big ticket item like an Airstream, and the purchase would have to be in person. I have bought other big $$$ items and have never been burned....knock on wood.

Having a Paypal account w/ my CC on file does not bother me, no diff than giving the local kid at my gas station my card to run through. If I get burned the CC co. will take matters into their hands....I actually had Ebay get mad at me for contacting my CC co before telling 'them' when I got burned on an Ipod for my son.....matters got cleared up in a jiffy and i got my $$$ back thanks to my cc co.

i do the same thing with my Pay Pal account. let American Express deal with it! ha! sellers don't like the extra 3% they charge, but it's still worth it.

i just bought a trade wind off ebay a few weeks ago. it was only 150 miles away, and i made the final transaction in person. cash deal. the only thing that's a down side on buying on eBay is you loose negotiating power, unless the trailer isn't in the condition it was presented. mine was just what i expected. a "mild" project. ha! the belly pan's a little rough around the edges, and a few this and thats, but overall, not a bad deal.

say hi to "ShotGun" (named for the buckshot "character" under the window!( :

ha! it adds character, man! ya just can't play the "trailer trash" role without a shotgun blast in yer wall, now can ya? the funny thing is, there's holes in the wall inside from the blow through. if i ever do restore it to prestine, i'll replace the whole side. not nearly as big of a deal as i used to think. the important thing is, it's CAMPABLE!

Check Out This Ebay Deal

I never realized what a gamble it is to buy on Ebay. Thanks to all of you, I will be more careful in the future.

The only time I felt like I had been taken was when I bought "silverware" from a seller that said "silverware". When I got it, it was plastic. I just laughed and considered myself lucky that it was only a small price. Guess I got what I paid for eh?
