Another ebay bargain 2003 Bambi $5800!

Another too good to be true ebay item 7013737590. A "2003" Bambi for $5800! Worse, the seller is using photos from Colonial Airstream's site--their stock#7910, a 2006 Bambi, not a 2003 as the seller alleges.

You need quite a scorecard to keep track of this proliferating ebay nonsense.

The listing I found is for a 2003, yours is a 2002. The ebay listing I referenced is a different number than yours.

I'll bet it's probably the same seller.

Great word! Also, you went a lot further. You reported your guy but I can't figure out how to do that on ebay. Who do you contact at ebay?

How to report problems

This is the proceedure I use to report scammers to Ebay. For the second step I go to a different page (not the scammers) to start the process. I do this in case the scammer has hyjacked the page replaced the Ebay hyperlinks with his own.

1. Copy the listing number from the scam page.
2. Click on Security Center at the bottom of any ebay page.
3. Select "Report another problem", Click on the Report Problem button
4. Select "Problem with other members", Click on the continue button
5. In step 1 select "Fraud concern for buyers", In step 2 select "Report a listing you think is fraudulent (you didn't bid)", Click on the continue button
6. Click on the "Email us" hyperlink
7. If you are not logged into ebay, you will be prompted to do so now.
8. Paste the listing number (first step) in the text box and press send

It only takes a minute to do this, time well invested!

Talking Is it? or isn't it?

Hey Gang! Check out this one!

7226442448

Either their getting smarter ... or I'm getting dumber!

Same stupid BIN for $5,600 BUT ... They actually have made the effort to have a real Ebay user name with positive feedback .... Note the "contact me"
Email matches the seller name.

So what do you'all think? Is at a scam or what?? My Vote SCAM!

SCAM - SCAM - SCAM - SCAM - SCAM!!!

"Don't use reply to seller 'cause it goes to work!" Come on now! Get real. Why would anyone use a email address that they couldn't monitor every day??? Because it's a STOLEN ID!!!

Would someone honestly fall for that scam? The guy speaks in broken english, uses photos of Airstreams that were on ebay previously, asks for e-mails to another address bypassing ebay, has an incredibly low Buy-it-Now price (Low enough to raise my scam flag...if he was smart he would do something like 25k..that way most people might think it was legit instead of "Too good to be true"), and the list goes on....

I say, if he takes your money then you deserved it....
