E-Bay Fraud Alert - Listing Newer Model Airstreams for unofficial low Buy-It-Nows

Beware of a user listing newer model Airstream Trailers for sale at ridiculously low 'buy it now' prices.
The Buy It Now price is never the official button through e-bay, but stated as a buy it now price in the Add.
Also always included is an e-mail to contact the person, with a domain of

This person is only trolling for e-mail addresses!!!
Do not even ask a question, etc.
If you do, shortly afterwards, you will get a spoofed e-mail asking to confirm your account details with e-bay.
This person has already stolen many e-bay accounts using this method.
They list such things as, a 2005 Airstream Quicksilver, with a buy it now of 5,000 dollars, including free shipping. They state, all you have to do is e-mail them using their e-mail address posted in the add.
... if it's too good to be true...

Beware, and don't be defrauded!

Best wishes all,
Toby J. H.

He/she or it, is well know around here.
Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91
