Funny, I saw the relist and reported it, then saw Jack had already reported it. If eBay is consistant, it should be gone shortly........

That must be legitimate.

This seller doesn't want you to use "Ask Seller a Question" email because that goes to his home, and he is all day at work.

But the email he wants you to use is his home email. 'O the confusion!

And the other guy doesn't want you to use the "Ask Seller a Question" because it goes to his work, and he is not at work till next week!.

They should swap e-mails, or at least cover for each other.

Maybe this DUMMY should bid on one of the scam auctions:

I just read this Associated Press article. Yep, people on Ebay bid on dummies, and some dummies bid on Ebay:

Carpool Dummy Sells on eBay for $15,000

By Associated Press

document.write(getElapsed("20060324T132945Z"));Fri Mar 24, 8:29 AMUPDATED 4 DAYS 57 MINUTES AGO
DENVER - A makeshift mannequin that failed to fool police monitoring the high-occupancy vehicle lane on a highway has fetched $15,000 in an auction on eBay, with proceeds going to charity, the buyer announced.
A company called Video Professor bought the Styrofoam head, coat hanger, and clothing stuffed with newspapers from carpool-lane scofflaw Greg Pringle, 53, said Brian Olson, a spokesman for the company.
Olson said the computer tutoring company will take Tillie to various events and later auction her off again for charity in June.
As part of his sentence handed down earlier this month, Pringle agreed to donate any profits from a Web site _ launched to free "Tillie" after she was impounded by police _ and the auction to a driver safety awareness program.
"We've rescued Tillie from a life of crime and we hope to rehabilitate her so she can be a contributing dummy to our society," Olson said Thursday, The Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News reported.
Pringle also was fined $115 and ordered to hold a sign alongside the highway for four hours reading: "HOV lane not for dummies." He was pulled over and ticketed Jan. 26 for driving in the lane reserved for car pools, motorcycles, buses, and hybrid vehicles.
Pringle has said it cost him $10 to create Tillie.

Any justice?

Does eBay actually pursue these ba$tard$ and try and prosecute or do they just cancel the listing and say, Oh well? I realize that the sellers have had their user ID's and password stolen through fishing scams, but seriously, are any of these people caught or even investigated and brought to justice?

Wow, all three are gone. Good job folks. Maybe we should ask for a finders fee?
