I have been having fun with these guys for a while now. I don't just restrict myself to Airstreams. I probably did about 30 today that were scams. I always bid on the item then I know when ebay pulled it. I often email the scammer also to tell them they were reported. I have stopped doing so now because it takes too much more time. One scammer asked me if I could stop for one night, please. Another simply said F*** y**. I find it rather amusing.

OMGosh, how much money did you loose? I hope it wasn't the $3990! Please tell me it was just the deposit.

Fwiw ...

... this is the note I got from a seller after I alerted him to the scamster auctions. Despite his shock, he was impressed by the Airstream photos! Maybe we'll have an unintended convert:

Thanks again Theresa. I've ended all ~70 of the fake auctions and changed my passwords. I haven't gotten any suspicious ebay-related emails lately either, but I'll definitely be more vigilant now. Paypal appears untouched too. I did get an unexpected login prompt while browsing some auctions today, and perhaps that's how they got me, but i'm not sure how they could have redirected a link from a list of auctions within ebay. I've been a casual ebayer for over eight years now, and this is the first time i've been scammed. Hopefully this will be the last time too.

Those Airstream trailers are pretty spiffy looking though!

What is our liability if we bid on a fraudulent listing? And are we going to cost the real ebayer money?

I reported 4 tonight at 6 p.m. but they're still up. The poor legit seller has 71 fake auctions up along with the 8 normal auctions posted under her name; is she on the hook for the listing & selling fees?

The spoofed seller is not on the hook for auction fees, but it is a pita to have this happen.
You need all new passwords for you personal e-mail, as well as new paypal and ebay passwords.
Someone baggedmy account a while back, and it was a major nuisance.
Actually kept me from ebay for quite a while.
Why don't these a-hole scam artists find a new hobby...

As P.T. Barnum never said: "There's a sucker born every minute".

Unfortunately these scammers will continue to play as long as it continues to pay.

Keep up the guard and keep shutting them down and maybe they'll move on to another scam.

Well the ebay vendor who got hijacked knows it's a scam and even posted something on the ad itself. I'm not sure if it's still up but it won't be for long at this point since he has reported it now.

Well I just checked and its gone.

I've reported some today but can't make up my mind about this one: The category is close, but why the Euros if she's in Kentucky? And it's not fully filled out. So I emailed the seller but didn't contact ebay.
