I agree on the bidding late. Everything I have bought on ebay I started bidding at T minus 20 seconds

If you look into the feedback on some of these, it looks like they really have purchased some items on Ebay to build up their feedback ratings. You'd think the authorities could track the shipments of those purchases to find these guys and put them behind bars.

I think they are probably hijacked accounts where someone fell for the phish e-mial that goes something like this "Your account has had suspicious activity please click the link below and verify your info...."

I liked these parts:

Make: Airstream Leveling
Jacks: Yes
.
.
.
.
Interior
Sleeps: 4 Contact
Us: Email

I don't know what make Airstream Leveling is, but I can guess that the 4 Contact sleeping arrangements are pretty intimate.

That's what happens when you cut and paste something and lose the line breaks along the way. Doing it manually with limited knowledge of the English language can be tough.......

Wow that last post was number 666. That was my employee number for about a day where I work. They decided that it was not good, so I got a new one. The funny thing is I have this birthmark that.........

Now I'm confused because the title lists the price as 9.998$. I wonder if this is US $? I wish they'd clarify that.

Mooneys are worse than Airstreams. You can't tell what shape they're in until you take the interior and back close-out area apart, and they tend to seep, seep, seep fuel. I used to work on them and love them, but they are more of a commitment than an Airstream most any day.

Dude, what is with that? The phone prefix in our area is 666, and I never heard so much whining and complaining, but now everyone's got used to it. Still, it's not like it opened up the gates of hell or something...

I just wanted to mention that after seeing all these bad ebay auctions, I spotted the same thing on another auction site - a fish auction! Yes, there is a free tropical fish auction site called AquaBid, and they had a big deal where some scammer came on, claimed he was in LA but then mysteriously was located out of the country, and outright stole other people's descriptions and pictures (except he photoshopped the colors to make the fish look even more interesting). Luckily the sharp eyed regulars caught him (including some people who recognized pictures of thier own fish in his listings)! Just goes to show, eBay isn't the only place these guys are scammin!

at least they're not lazy ....

I'm sure we've said it before but I feel like saying it again:

couldn't most criminals make a pretty decent living if they worked this hard at a legit enterprise?
