Scam!
Catagory is wrong, short auction (2-3 days) and no reserve. It is interesting that they do not want contact outside of ebay. Maybe they changed the listed ebay email for the seller....

I have noticed that since you guys are being so proactive in notifying e-bay about scams that the fake auctions are dissappearing much quicker so you guys are having an impact. I wish I had the time to be a watcher, too. Sounds like fun and rewarding.

It may be on the up and up, and may be a good deal. Just remember though, if a deal is to good to be true, it will probally be gone before you get there

This trailer is a project. Most likely a shell off floor replacement. It will require alot of work. Tbe body looks sound with the exception of the small tear in the curbside rear.

quick response today just got this-
"
Item Number - 290022883648

Item Title - Airstream 16' Safari Bambi Travel Trailer Camper $5,6OO

Our records show that you placed a bid on this item. We removed this item from the Site and cancelled your bid because it appears that the seller's account has been compromised and used by an unauthorized third party.

I've found that, if I report something during the afternoon, it takes about 6 hours to get it down, but last night I reported one about 11 p.m. & it was gone by midnight. So they must get swamped at certain hours of the day.

Don't bet on it. I had to report about a dozen today, and that's the most in a long time. Of course, the scamsters also accounted for about 300 other high-ticket auctions in those sellers' names.

I go tired of reporting them and bid on the first one - link here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/05-Airstream-Saf...QQcmdZViewItem

My bids $10K - anyone want to start a bidding war on it?

http://cgi.ebay.com/Airstream-16-Saf...QQcmdZViewItem

http://cgi.ebay.com/T-B-TAB-Dutchman...QQcmdZViewItem

The last ones a T@b. I tried to bid on all three, but was blocked from bidding on more than one item.

http://cgi.ebay.com/30-airstream-cam...QQcmdZViewItem

I think this '66 is fraud also - it's in the same WRONG category as the obvious frauds - if it is, they are starting to change their methods by using a vintage unit.

Another category, another fraud:
