eBay i.d. flopmeister, with current new listings is stolen. I just had a message from the account owner. Like the listing says, "do not bid."

More Ebay Scams Than One Could Ever Want More Than 200!!!!

So check out the airstream auctions as I always do every morning and what do I find but more than 200 airstream auction scams. All done by the same person if you ever wanted an airstream trailer for $10.99 now is the time. I can't imagine how much time this took to do and possibly by the time you even look for them will be gone. They're only up for 24 hours and that is partially expired. They are all one picture auctions posted in the wrong category, no description in fact it looks like in it he is selling an LCD television. I just don't understand. This person is just a major jerk and a fool if he thinks he is kidding anyone. Of course he wants to you to e-mail him directly don't go through eBay of course not.
Clicky


Upon further inspection I found his other auctions this dude has posted over 1900 auctions in the past 12 hours unbelievable he must have 10 people working for him.

378 listings from flopmeister

not only has this sellers id been hijacked but the hijacker has a bot to spam the airstream trailer category.... perhaps this is retribution for our collective diligence. ever vigilant

I got my email from Ebay that Airstreams were being sold that matched my criteria, but they are all gone now (7:30pm eastern). They included all of the ones you listed.

As a seller, I hate the idea, but if Ebay charged in advance to list, this would never happen-the scammers would have to find another way. I suspect that the big wigs at Ebay know this is hurting the credibility of their product, and creating a large negative connotation of on-line business. However, I don't think they are getting their heads out of the sand enough to deal with it. I will be watching to see what they do, since it is getting worse, not better.

Not a Scam!

I think this is different than the last one of these I saw (some time last year).

If you check the other items these scammers have listed for sale, its unreal. Hundreds of fake ads for everything high ticket.
We must be helping by reporting them, hopefully they will find a better way to police this stuff.

$10.99 bid - no bids?

What did eBay say? ...I couldn't find those listings...but what's the fuss...no one is bidding.. ZERO bids ...starting at $10.99. ? What's that about?


Have you all heard of RVOnline.com ? - it seems to be pretty upfront.
1. a 34 foot, triple axle 1994 Excella for $18.500. That's within reason.
&
2. an 1990 Excella 1000...for $21,500.

both of them clean and straight (not remodeled, but clean & straight). The website is RV Online Listing Information and it's out of Aptos, California.
I have no idea how they hook up a buyer and seller, or payment is made. .. only what I saw early-on on the ad. I would suspect it's all like a newspaper ad...the buyer will contact you and you make your own arrangements. I like that better than all the fees ebay and paypal take anyway.

More?

ALAN? ....You didn't say if you'd heard of RVOnline.com ? I ask questions like other do, but no one answers mine. There's the one I asked about RVOnline....and---- the other one was about this Forum having previously a place to sell your rig???...what happened to it? ----is it gone?

The reason I'm being so persistent is that I NEED to sell a very nice. big A/S t.t., and need to find the best and the fastest way. If you have any ideas you can think of...I promise you it won't waste your finger energy Alan.

To everyone else:
PLEASE ANSWER THESE...OR IF YU HAV ANY OTHER IDEAS ON HOW I COULD SELL IT..... please share either on here...or PM me please ????

Look at the top of the page, right below The Airstream Knowledge Sharing Forums. The 4th tab over is the Classifieds section. You can post your ad there.

Craigslist (free) or eBay (costs) are also options.

Is this worth pursuing?

I am kandhauto (aadyzzu@aol.com) on eBay, I recently listed an auction for the eBay item titled: 1986 AIRSTREAM EXCELLA 32FT (FULL BATH APPLIANCES) with item number: 120089895038 and I've just been contacted by the eBay staff who informed me that the winner of this item got rejected due to security reasons (either failed to follow through on the purchase commitment or outright refused to do so). Your best offer of US $1,000.00 prior is taken into consideration as eBay policy automatically proclaims you to be the winner by default. Nevertheless, I need your agreement on this so I may contact eBay to confirm your winning position otherwise I'll have to relist the item. If interested, please confirm me by providing your details such as name, address and eBay ID nickname to aadyzzu@aol.com (it's my work email and i`m available most of the time).
Thank you


I received this through ebay's email notification. Looks like kandhauto is trying to get into my ebay account somehow.

If I thought he was for real, I'd probably pay $1000 for this trailer....it's the one the tree fell on.

Looks like a "second chance offer" scam to me. I would delete the email.
