I think that the 66 is real. It is in the wrong catagory, but that's all. It's a 7 day auction and has no buy it now verbage. Most scams are better looking then this one and they all have better pictures.

I think it's real too, only because once a hijacker has hold of someone's ID, he posts a gazillion auctions on it, and this seller only has 3 listings.

You're probably right, it's just that they were all listed in the Sporting Goods category when I searched for "airstream"

I guess I'm not going to get the Bambi after all - eBay cancelled the listing and sent me 2 "alerts" because I bid on it, and emailed the seller.

Hijacked Ebay accounts

This actually happened to me on my Ebay account. Someone hacked it and registered a sellers account with a fake credit card. Ebay notified me when they tried to change my Email address. That alerted me so I caught it after the add for a Ducatti motorcycle had ran only two days. I immediately reported it the Ebay and notified any bidders that it was a fake auction scam. Ebay finally ended the auction about a week later, after whatever investigation they did. I am still stuck with the sellers account as they cannot cancel it. I even recieved notice to update (my) credit card, which they had never taken off. Apparently, it happens quite regularly!

That's because it's being "relisted" in 1-day auctions by the scamsters, so as fast as we report them, they go back up under somebody else's ID. If you look at the "other items for sale" on these frauds, you'll see the same 39 listings over & over.

Just for the record, my 1978 Argosy is on ebay, and NOT a scam! Though I am getting all sorts of strange emails asking me Airstream questions, as though I am an expert, when all I am is a tin can nut who has owned and fixed many trailers. Seriously though, all this scamming is really freaky! I was almost wondering whether some of these strange questions are from people trying to figure out whether my trailer was for "real" or not.

Okay, now I am really stressing out! The current bidder on my Argosy is a tlgariety who has written an Airstream Scam guide on ebay, so right next to their bid is this link that says"this seller is out of country scam artist, etc" type of comment. Does that mean this bidder is bidding because they think my auction is a scam and they are warning potential bidders? Or just that they are bidding? Maybe it is another forum user? I am a worry wart...
