Exact same scam as mentioned in post #584. Trying to look legit

Auction still going...

Howdy, Mike. This morning, this auction is still active; did you report it? I clicked on the "email me to bid" link (and hid my email address) to ask about bidding. I also emailed the only bidder on the list saying "Good luck on the Airstream (LOL)" to see if they respond to me. Could just be a shill bid by the seller. I reported that auction as a possible fraud, and am watching it.

On Ebay, I regularly search for Airstream auctions, but my search starts at $999 to minimize parts, manuals etc. Maybe I'll have to change my search criteria for a more sporting experience (chasing down fraudsters).

I have been searching for just the right AS for a while now. I see and report these Ebay fakes all the time, probably one a week. Probably a few dozen other people people report them as well. I would never bid on one of them or do ANYTHING other that just report it. I would be afraid that somehow they could get some data of mine and use it in the future. I also change my EBAY password quite often.

seems they( ebay) have been better about pulling the fakes off quickly after reporting them. I sent in a few and within an hour they were gone.

Howdy. Strange auctions for a bookseller, don't you think?

I am winning bidder on one of the Airstreams! A hundred bucks for a new one!!!! Cool.

I sent an "Ask Seller" message to see if the actual seller knows he's been hijacked.

What do you mean it will be cancelled. I won't get my Airstream? Awww...shucks.

I also reported both the Ebay as fraudulent before I bid. I wanted to bid so I could track how long it took before Ebay shut it down.

How do these guys get all the positive feedback? Is there a post in this thread that describes how the scam works?

I got the message from Ebay: the auction was pulled, and all bids cancelled. I got my email notification at 16:29 (I don't remember what time zone they are in). No $100 Airstream for me...

I also got an email from Ebay that said they had noticed an email sent from me to the seller, and Ebay wanted to remind me that transactions completed outside Ebay are not safe. Gosh, that's no fun...and I was going to send cash in the mail too..

Howdy, Mike. Good catch. I saw the listing, and tried to report it, but the report link didn't work. I refreshed it several times, and saw a new Ask Seller question and answer appear ("You are being ripped off. I did not list this trailer"), but then it became inactive. I am going now to Yahoo and report the email address used for the fraud.
