I think I would buy if he included a tow vehicle. Otherwise his price is just too high.

Already did. First thought was 5,600 for buy it now, and take over balance of loan. But no such thing. Jeff

Exclamation Buyer beware

It's no error. It's a scam. What you normally see is someone has had thier account compromised. This "person" is selling this with that cracked account. If you notice they want you to email to them at an aol account. They will also not due paypal, they will most likely want a cashiers check mailed to a PO Box overseas or a wire transfer to a 3rd world country bank. Normally they take a older sale and use those pictures. Last time I saw this, I sent an email to the ebay account and asked them if they knew about this sale. The sale ended 30 minutes later. Ebay was upset with me and kept sending me nasty notes. I guess they don't like to let that commision slip away. BTW, they will ship you the trailer in 2 to 3 days for around 15 dollars . You have 7 days to return if if you are not satisfied.

well.. the wally numbers on the front are clearly visable... it's easy enough to verify if the owner was the seller. According to my book, the owner of those numbers lives in OH.

Here are some rules for sellers:

Seller Non-Performance


When a seller lists an item on eBay, and a buyer bids for and wins that item, the seller and buyer have entered into a contract. Both members are expected to honor that contract. In accordance with that contract, the seller may not:
  • Fail to deliver an item for which payment was accepted.
  • Significantly misrepresent an item by not meeting the terms and item description outlined in the listing.
  • Refuse to accept payment for an item at the end of a successful sale.
  • Refuse to accept a buyer’s PayPal payment using a credit card if the seller included the PayPal logo in the listing which signifies the seller will accept PayPal payments. Sellers are not permitted to state in their listings that PayPal payments made via credit card will not be accepted.
Violations of this policy by a Seller may result in a range of actions, including:
  • Listing cancellation
  • Limits on account privileges
  • Account suspension
  • Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings
  • Loss of PowerSeller status
  • Referral to Law Enforcement
  • Ouch!

If it's too good to be true, it usually is!

Now this one is a cool/interesting listing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Airst...spagenameZWDVW

In reality though...seems like a waste of a perfectly good Airstream.

if you were the "Buy it Now" person, I wouldn't send any money . . . they emailed me and said it's in storage in San Jose . . . something about going on a trip to Europe.

(if it sounds too good to be true then it ain't (true))

Just remember, the listed seller and the current owner of the Airstream had nothing to do with this scam. They were unaware of any of this. The trailer most likely was listed some time back in a real ad. The person who will be hurt will be the person who's account was cracked. He will have to change his ID and do a bunch of paperwork with ebay. I hope no money has changed hands on this one! BTW did anyone notice the category that this sale was listed under? It was reproductions of vintage cloths and shoes.

And here's the reply from the listed email address:

Hello and thanks for your interest in my Airstream,Best price $5600 incl.
shipping if you buy it today.
First of all, let me assure you about the performances and about the
condition of it. As you can see in the images the Airstream is in a perfect shape
with no damage,no scratches or dents, no hidden defects, and it is as
advertised.
I'm the owner with the title in hand and the transaction can be completed
quickly. You will receive all the papers and documentation, the clear title and
all the bills and invoices. There is no liens on the title and you will not
have any complications about the registration and licensing the Airstream.
The trailer is sent to a local warehouse, here in San Jose , CA and from
here it will be shipped from. I'm in a trip in Europe and they will handle the
shipping for me! The trailer is ready for delivery as we speak, sealed and
packaged so we can close the deal as soon as you're ready.To tell you the truth
I am forced to sell this trailer as my sister is very sick and need a marrow
transplant and as she need it quickly I have to sell all my units as soon as
possible to help her. I am right now with her in Ireland where the
transplant will be made.So even it is pretty hard to do it,to save a life I think it
worse.

The price for the trailer is $5,600. The shipping costs are deducted from
the price so there will not be any additional costs or charges for you
regarding the shipping. This is the final and total amount to pay.
I will only close the deal through eBay Motors Protection program.I am
eligibile for their protection for transactions up to $20,000.s against fraud and
material misrepresentation through the Vehicle Purchase Protection program.
This program is provided for free on all eligible passenger vehicle
transactions completed on the eBay Motors site. There's no sign-up, opt-in, or
registration necessary. Your passenger vehicle purchase is protected for up to
$20,000 or the vehicle purchase price, whichever is lower.
If we will agree the terms of the sale, i will register the transaction with
eBay Motors. You will send the money to their staff, they will verify the
payment and if everything is in order, they will advise me to ship the unit.
After you'll receive the item, you'll have 3 days period for inspection. If you
decided to keep the item, ebay will release the payment to me. If, for some
reason at all, you don't want to keep them, there will be no question refund
back. But, i'm sure this will not be the case.

So, ebay will release the payment to me only after you'll receive and test
the trailer.
I hope you'll agree with my terms and we'll finalize the transaction smooth
and fast. If you're further interested, REPLY WITH YOUR FULL SHIPPING ADDRESS
AND YOUR COMPLETE CONTACT INFORMATION and let's conclude this deal.
As azflycaster mentioned, Scam!

That same ID has two other buy it now sales going. A 2004 John Deere fron loader with attachments for $45 and a Polaris Ranger 6 x 6 for $12. I understand the Mona Lisa will be going next, most likely for $149.99.

I remember the real listing about 4 months ago. It didn't make its reserve then. I wonder who the winning bidder is, and if they are sharp enough to catch this scam. Jeff

You'll notice that the buyer's identity is protected so no one can contact them to tell them it's a scam!
