1998 Safari 25' with HA hitch. 5200$, free shipping, it won't last long (I reported it to ebay).
I also reported them too. My favorite thing to do with these potential scam auctions is to send a message to the seller asking if I can come and look at the trailer. I have yet to hear back from any of them. The scam sellers think they can fool us but they are wrong. The auctions are so obvious (at least to me).

I sent an email to the seller and to the email address listed in the auction (the addresses are different). I heard back from the email address listed in the auction...it is the same "stored in a warehouse in San Jose and the seller is in Europe" scam. Here's the text of the email....

Dear Sir ,

I want to be honest with you and I inform you that i have 2 buyers interested in this trailer , they are willing to pay the buy it now price .To be fair with all possible buyers I will sell the trailer to the first buyer that will arange the Square Trade first payment . If you are able to make the first payment today or tomorrow you will be the next owner of this trailer .
First I will like to tell you that I am in United Kingdom and the trailer is stored at ebay warehouse in San Jose , CA , the trailer will be shipped from there on my expence.
The trailer is like new , in perfect condition . I am selling this trailer because the shipping to Europe will cost me to much.I have this trailer from my father in law .The Buy it now price is $5,200 (S&H included) . I will sell the trailer to the first one that makes a 2,900 $ deposit through Square Trade .

Terms & Conditions Shipping and handling:
The shipping address must be provided before sending the payment. The trailer will be shipped through JC MOTORS or DAS Shipping Company . The trailer will only be sent after receiving the payment. I agreed with eBay Square Trade to send my trailer to its warehouse since I am not in US .
This way, both sides (seller and buyer) are insured by eBay.

Payment:
If you will offer the buy it now price I will suport all the shipping from the warehouse to your address .
For the payment i would like to use eBay Square Trade as a third party . They will keep your money until you get the trailer and will release it to me upon delivery .
Here are my name and address you need for the payment in case you decide to buy the trailer .

The trailer is ready for shipment, i just need the payment confirmation from Square Trade with the transfer's details and the trailer will be delivered to your address.

REFUND-After the trailer arrives, you have a 7 days period for inspection. If the trailer is different than the way i've described it, 100% refund - transfer fees and the trailer will be shipped back to the warehouse on my expence. Anyway, i don't think it will be necesary, you'll love this trailer from very first moment you'll see it.
Buy with confidence!
I will have pay for an insurance to eBay Square Trade as proof my trustworthiness.
Thanks for the conceded time .
I am looking forward to your reply.


The boat is sold to anouther buyer.

Back in the days when I was doing some investigative work and interviews of people, one of the tipoffs of a person who'd be lying to you was when they'd tell you just how honest they were, when in fact they were just the opposite.

Of course those persons are so stupid, you don't even have to be that observant to see through their scams. But then again, I'm sure there are plenty of people in the world that are more stupid than they are that will send them money.

That's the key - as vigilant as this community is on getting their fraudulent ads knocked off, you would think they would give up - the fact they continue, tells me that they're making money - as long as there are suckers willing to pay, they will continue.

KEEP UP THE VIGILANCE - KNOCK EM DOWN!

1969 Caravel

Has anyone noticed the '69 Caravel that is on ebay for the third time in about 5 weeks? The first time reserve was not met, the second time it 'sold' for $5600 to someone with no previous buy/sell history. Wonder what that's about? It's in Poulsboro (?) Washington, no reserve for any who are interested. Auction Hotspot, the seller, seems legit. I have corresponded with him about a Ducati he was selling - didn't win though. Just seems strange. Wonder what happened?

Simple - His account was hijacked and then used to for fraud.

Just took a look at eBay this AM. There are about 5 fraud listings trying to sell $40k+ Airstreams for $5800.00. Someone's been busy!

All reported.....

This person is getting very bold. Not only are there 3 new fraud listing, but the person has taken the phots off of current/active non-fraud listings.

2 Safari 25' units and 1 25' SE unit...all with under $7500 buy it now, and all 3 reported.
