I had our account reopened from the last hacker yesterday, while I was waiting for the support person to approve the account, I asked when is Ebay going to close these loopholes for these scams.

I was told Ebay is iron tight as far as security, I asked if they read the Internet news, said they didn't need to they work here.

Talk about you head in the sand

they don't seem inclined to remove it.... hope the "seller" doesn't reel anyone in.

Kinda weird how it is a 2005 and "used" but the plastic is still on the bed and the stone guards. This deal stinks.

The "used" 16' Bambi is suspicious. The photos were obviously taken at a dealer's lot. The sticker is on the dinette table and the protective film is still on the front rock shields. The 7313 is probably the last 4 of the VIN. This listing just doesn't jive.

Howdy. Sorry to hear about your connection to these (apparent) scams.

How does Ebay let this seller (scammer?) blatantly modify Ebay's methods (has no Buy it Now, but says will only sell at BIN price), does not use the ebay message system (says his ebay mail is locked down and he cannot access it)? I think $5,000 for BIN with Free Shipping would be a really good deal though. I put my bid in (at $1,000).

I have not heard back from my email requesting inspection of the San Jose-Ebay-Warehouse-kept Airstream auction.

Oh, oh. Now that I initiated contact, will they use my information to scam others? Oh my...I'll keep a close watch on my Ebay.

Oh, no. Ebay just cancelled the auction. In fact all his auctions. I got this message:
The following is a notice from eBay Trust & Safety regarding:

Item Number - 220077144075

Item Title - 2006 Airstream 19' International CCD Trailer Loaded

Our records show that you were a bidder or buyer of one or more of this seller's items. We recently removed this seller's active listings and suspended the seller's trading privileges. Due to privacy concerns we cannot share further details about this seller.


Oh well, there goes my oh-so-cheap trailer. Maybe I shouldn't have reported the auction as a fraud.

Send a message via Skype™ to Melody Ranch
watch what you say

I know that these scumwads can get to you, BUT.........as soon as you send them a reply , thinking that you will give 'em a gig....they in turn now have you. Your contact info and, possibly, much other, personal info is open to them. Thats what they were after. Just report them to EBAY. You will be much safer.

Mike - they target any "big dollar" items - airstreams just happen to be one of their pitches. Most of these sleazeballs usually have Kubota tractors, 4-wheelers, motorcycles, boats, etc. listed alongside the airstreams.

Howdy, Mike. Good job. I cannot find any of those on Ebay now. They've eliminated them. (8:40pm).

the problem is that it would seem that the concentration on potential Airstream buyers presumes that we would be more gullible or perhaps lustful... it is moderately irritating that the sleezoids continue this... there you have it - a quest to rid the Internet of Airstream scams.... I'm energized...

regards

Mike

btw... thanks Phil and/or Sue for helping out

That is a weird one...no buy it now, email to be put on bid list, no "email me outside of the ebay because it doesn't work" notes. But there are a bunch of canceled bids due to not emailing first....I wonder if I can snipe it for $500
