2004 TOWABLE TRAVEL TRAILER CAMPER 2004 AIRSTREAM CLAS
Item number:230089994160

eBay: 2004 TOWABLE TRAVEL TRAILER CAMPER 2004 AIRSTREAM CLAS (item 230089994160 end time Feb-11-07 19:58:21 PST)

Oh, no. Another seller has the exact same trailer. Now I don't know who to buy it from

Reported to Ebay. I would report the email address to AOL, but they don't have any way to do that. And they don't care that their users are perpetrating anything from fraud to grand larceny.

The 16 footer (post # 638) is still up, but the cloned 19 footer (post #s 639 and 640) is down as of this time today.

Phil and/or Sue,
You guys are great! Good karma coming your way for keeping the scamers at bay. BTW: My son is a Home Depot Zone Service Manager in the Cumming, GA area.

I reported 250082661659 again. Mind as well spam eBay if they aren't paying attention.

Howdy. All the above auctions have been shut down.

Thanks for the karma! As a sometime seller and frequent buyer, I want ebay to have honest people on it. It appears that ebay is letting other users report items before actually realizing that there is a problem. Then they look at those and take action. So, I have a search set up just to look for 2000-2006 Airstreams with starting price less than $100 by searching on the following string:
airstream (2000,2001,2002,2003,2004,2005,2006).

I work in the Blue Ridge Home Depot store 1771. With all the stuff in the store, I keep finding things that I need but is not available: Vulkem, aluminum rivets, replacement lights, alclad alum, .

I don't think so Tim?

This one doesn't have the usual tell tale signs of a scam except that it is under the wrong category -
eBay: 2005 AIRSTREAM 16' SAFARI BAMBI TRAVEL TRAILER (item 250083079856 end time Feb-15-07 03:23:24 PST)
- 250083079856 seems suspicious
report or not to report?

Thanks

Mike

Definitely report - it will take eBay a little while longer to dump this one. They're using the technique mentioned here: #584. Definitely still a scam

Ha! That's the same pics as one of the previous ones. A brand new trailer, with no reserve. SCAM!

Reported to Ebay: same pics, no reserve, wrong cat.

Does anyone know how to report to AOL that one of their email addresses is being used to perpetrate crimes, from fraud to grand larceny? I looked for about 15 minutes the other day to no avail. I suspect they do not care.

I have been told that AOL does not offer email utilization complaints to unauthorized (non-members) through email. The problem with an open email collector is that it would be overwhelmed with malicious connections dumping abusive emails at a very high rate. They do offer telephone support
http://postmaster.info.aol.com/contact/index.html but they don't seem to be that interested in invesitigating complaints of criminal behavior from their accounts. It may be possible to move up the chain from the bank of support folks and see if persistance would get some action. For me, watching the airstream postings on eBay is a lot less frustrating than dealing with the bureaycracy at Time-Warner.

Have Fun!

Mike

I thought it looked familiar. In a previous post, the number written on the rock guard was presumed to be the last digits of the serial number. Someone actually mentioned it in a post (#7313): http://www.airforums.com/forum...9-post601.html

Here is the current auction pic.

Thanks for that info, and I agree. The red tape and twists and contortions just to get to them only means that they are informed, not that they'll do anything. So, I'll keep watching and reporting.

Still there 250083079856

Dang, I guess dBAy thinks that this listing is legitimate. Too bad - there are actually some bidders. If it weren't a felony in most states, it would be interesting to try to scam one of these scammers... too much effort though.

Regards

Mike
