OK, this is not a scam. Has anyone noticed the number of door mats for sale on ebay recently. BIN for $40 and now another seller is offering the same mat with a BIN for only $25. These same door mats are for sale at the Airstream Store for $15.29

I’ve been watching those mats and am amazed that bidders don’t check the most likely source before bidding. In one ad (item #300089212065), the seller said “Brand new normally retails at Airstream for $75." Go figure.

P.T. Barnum should be the ebay spokesman.

ijacked account

So, I decided to send the hijacked account a message asking whether or not the account holder knew it had been hijacked. The original account holder had a good reputation. I received a flurry of messages from ebay safety bots telling me to not do business with the account holder and if I had, to stop payment. Interesting that they would be aware of a hijacked account and not pull of the items for sale. In computerland that would be trivial. So when there are hijacked accounts, emailing - in ebay - the seller seems to raise the urgency of taking care of the potential scams. Ever vigilant!

Send a message via AIM to Condoluminum
That would probably be due to fear at E-Bay of losing revenue from sale of the item, if buyers and sellers used the service to find each other, and then did business separate from their computer... If you lose purchase price, that is your problem.. If E-Bay loses a 5% commission, then they get angry...

Interesting insight, and may be easy way to get their attention sooner...

Beware and becareful

Just this week we were informed by Ebay that our account had been accessed by a third party who had placed several listings under my member name. The scammer had listed Airstreams, boats, truck, cars etc. under my name. I was totally unaware until Ebay notified me. Now, Ebay has restricted my account until I complete several tasks. Of course I am glad they caught it, but it is a real pain trying to get your account restored. I have had to change my passwords to paypal, my personal email and ebay. So far, there is no damage that we are aware of. And, for that we are grateful.

Pam
