My photos show VIN #517600 ad states the vin is #518113
I sent the seller a message asking if they had any actual photos of their trailer, and that the pics in their auction are from a dealer so they should say so in the description.

I then looked at their website (Digital Labrador | Welcome) which is a photography place (oh the irony...). Here is a screengrab of one pic in their home page slideshow. They use the AS on-site for photo shoots apparently.

Another scam auction using the same pic.

"2005 AIRSTREAM 16' SAFARI BAMBI TRAVEL TRAILER
~~~Best Price~~~ Item number: 230195887213"
2005 AIRSTREAM 16' SAFARI BAMBI TRAVEL TRAILER - (eBay item 230195887213 end time Nov-28-07 02:33:57 PST)

Sent a message to the ID holder (that his ID has been hijacked and recommending a better password), reported to Ebay, then bid on auction (so I get notified when it shuts down).

I am interested in seeing how long it takes to take it down.

Pretty quickly, it appears.

I got the standard email from Ebay thanking me for my report, then 35 minutes later, I got my email from Ebay that the auction was cancelled: " ...We removed the listing and cancelled your bid because it appears that the seller's account was used by someone without their permission. ... Due to privacy concerns, we can't provide the details..."

Not bad! I wonder if they acted on my report, or whether the actual ID holder contacted them as I recommended.

Phil - if you watch this guy does this almost every Sunday or late Saturday night - presume his email was something like "am.thomas5"....

What's scary is how many accounts he's apparently stolen to use for this.

Thanks for posting this, fabo. I almost feel sorry for anyone sucker enough to bid on an obvious scam such as this. Free shipping? Gimme a break. Do not contact me through eBay? Gimme another break.
Unbelievably low price? Yes it is unbelievable.
Those Nigerian coffee cafes must be crammed with crooks who would steal our money. Anyone who is not a member of these forums or is not a subscriber to Airstream Life magazine is on his/her own.
There is safety in numbers.

Why is the price always $5800 on all of these scams. Can someone retire in Nigeria with that amount?

Maybe $5,800 is what it costs to escape Nigeria.....

It is unfortunate to see bidders on this. They get their hopes up, excited as heck, hoping to join the wonderful world of Aluminoids, and then bam, it's a scam.

It will be interesting to see how long eBay takes to blow it away.

$5800 in Nigeria is probably a king’s ransom. Let me see. If I count the value of my priceless vintage Airstream artifacts (aprons , toasters, drawer pulls, etc), I might have enough to live like a King in Nigeria.
Then I could spend all my days sipping Espresso and finding ways to separate evil Americans from their money, thus stopping imperialistic American demons from ruling the world, or line my pockets, whichever comes first.
OOPS, China already did that, excuse the post.
A thousand pardons and a bushel of Chinese apples to anyone offended.

I think you can forward the page to spoof@ebay .com. I have done that when solicited for a password check by either paypal or ebay .

Ha, good catch. The same pics as many other scam auctions, but it took me a while to find the hook. I finally clicked on the other pics and found the Buy It Now BS.

Reported this to Ebay, and sent a "Ask Seller Question" message.
