Like I mentioned earlier, I get (on average) 4-5 fraudulent eBay or Paypal emails a day, but today I got one that came close to fooling me!

This one's title was identical to the eBay format on asking the seller a question, and the title was ONE OF MY CURRENT LISTINGS! I only caught it when I clicked on the item number and saw the html address. It didn't link directly to eBay. It took me to the "sign in" page, that looked just slightly different. Fortunately I didn't "sign in". I never type my user id and password to sign in, it's automatically populated if I'm at an authentic site that I regularly use. At this site of course it wasn't.

As I backed up and took a closer look, I see that the grammer format of the "buyers" question was bad - and ignorant in asking how much to ship to a specific zip code (I list a flat shipping fee)

It's times like these that If I was more computer literate I would track down those and send them a virus

Anybody want an '05 Bambi Quicksilver, Buy-it-Now for $5800? Better act fast before eBay kills this one. I reported it.

I am tractor hunting, and I looked at a John Deere 2305 tractor on eBay the other day for $5800 BIN too. That's about a $13,000 tractor, by the way. Alas, eBay zapped that one after I reported it before I had a chance to bid on it.

Brand new ones this morning:

6063533282, 6063531653
6063497385, 9527428916, 9527429739, 9527430450

Dirtbags have even made it so the "report this listing" link opens up an email to them.

They were using 5 or 6 different user ids today - I reported them all.

E-bay has a 98 25' Safari, Buy it now. Is this also a scam?
The auction number is #7248144027. I am just new to the airstream community and am looking for a great buy, can you further explain these strategies?

My in-laws just purchased a newer airstream, I believe a 1998 Classic 35' in Arizona, anyway, they want to sell their older 76 25' model to us. What should we look for before buying? I don't normally purchase things from family for fear of something going wrong, but they only want $3,500 and the only thing it needs is a new fridge. They haven't used it for 15 years, anything else I should be watching for?
Thanks for your expertise.

Yes, this is a scam. Read this entire thread and you'll understand what these scumbags are up to.

100% Fraud - Notice the category it is in. These dirtbags keep listing the same items over and over again, using stolen accounts. They always have a "Buy It Now" price listed in the auction for wayyyy under retail. They always want contacted thru an email address other than the "contact Seller" link. They always list in the wrong category.

Good luck on your search, but steer clear of deals like this.

Thanks for your reply. I figured it was too good to be true. I might as well buy the 76 from my in-laws. Even if it does have a few problems, looks like it would be in the vintage category?

I wonder if it's the same as #300000715459 also listed under cameras. It's amazing that people can bilk people right out in public like that.

Here's your chance to get a BaseCamp at an incredibly low price and the seller will even deliver. The 'Buy It Now' price of $2900 will include free shipping. How can you beat that? Deal of the Century.

All of the pictures have been taken directly off of the internet from either Airstream's own website or dealer's sites.
