A friend of mine had photos of his bike hijacked and someone tried to sell his bike on ebay. Luckily the photos were hosted online by this friend of mine and linked to the same location from ebay. He went into the site that the photos were hosted and changed them to pics of prisons, huge letters SCAMMER, etc..etc...it was hilarious and got thousands of hits on ebay to see the listing. The lister was banned with much hoopla.

A couple of years ago, I had some of my Airstream pictures used in an ebay listing...needless to say, I was a little worked up over that!

That's one thing if they steal your pictures, that's another to just LINK to them - what nerve!

I found pictures of my mustang in a CL add for a similar mustang. I was pretty surprised. Luckily a quick email seemed to take care of it. The guy said it looked just like his car and so he figured no one would care.

It's a SCAM!

This scam group has been around for a long time. In 2006 they stole photos of our Scamp that had been posted in a classified ad on a forum site. They ran the photos and descriptions at least a half dozen times on eBay, always for $2500 with shipping included...considerably less than true value. Luckily, they didn't affect the sale of the Scamp, and we were able to buy the Airstream.

Ask if you can come see it.

Total scam!

Airstream Bambi scam continues, May 2008

Scam Warning! The seller of the May 25th 08 listing of a Bambi Airstream in Kijiji explained that the trailer is being held in an eBay shipping centre; no such shipping centre exists! Ads posted in Toronto, Hamilton and Kitchener, CANADA.

Thank you Airstream Forum for posting the previous threads in this matter!

Hope this helps anyone else who may have been interested in this ad.
If there is an Airstream out there for $4000- or less, I am interested in hearing from you. Just prefer to see the trailer prior to purchase.

Here is a copy of the message that I received May 27th from the seller (sarah45j@yahoo.com ):

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in purchasing my travel trailer. The trailer is in perfect condition - like new! The title is clear and I have already signed a release for the title to be transferred. You'll also receive all the papers required for registration , owner manual, keys, a buy-sell contract already signed by me. I must inform you that currently I'm in USA because I've just got a new job and I don't need the trailer anymore, because the company I work for, gave me a new one. For this transaction I want to use eBay because I want to provide you a fast and very secure way. They will handle the transaction for me. You will make the payment to eBay and they will hold the money until you receive the trailer. ONLY AFTER you receive the trailer and you inspect it (for 7 days) they will release the payment to me. In this way we are both protected.
The trailer is in ebay's custody in Canada, is registered there and you won`t have any problem registering the trailer on your name. The trailer will be shipped through DAS Shipping Company and after arrives, you have a 7 days period for inspection. The amount you will have to pay in order to own the trailer is $3,700.00 with shipping costs and insurance included ( my brother works for the shipping company so the services are free ). So if you are really interested in purchasing the trailer please email me back.

Best Regards!

Right now I am in Athens,in Greece with my work and I'm gone stay here for 2 more years. The travel trailer it is here with me,but there will not be any problems in shipping to you. I brought the trailer here and was gone register it, but the laws don`t permit me.The trailer must be 5 years old in order to be registered here. So, the only option I have is to sell it.The trailer will be shipped from Athens. You will not have to pay additional taxes just the price for it. The delivery can take up to 10-14 business days until the trailer will arrive to you. You`ll have to be home to sign the papers to receive it. I will insure the trailer,so if anything will happen on the way to you it will be covered. The total price you will have to pay with shipping included is $6,200.00 CAD dollars. So, please check the pics and get back to me as soon as you can and let me know if we can start the deal.

My best regards,
Daniel

Hello Sarah,

Here is all about delivery and payment for the 2006 AIRSTREAM 28 FT SAFARI TRAILER RV CAMPER which will be through Global Cargo ,and will also give you the chance to inspect the trailer until I will receive the payment for it.
I will explain to you step by step how this will work.
A. First you have to send me your shipping information (your name, address and phone number).
1. After I will receive your shipping info, I will go and deposit the trailer onto your name and address at the shipping company.
2. They will check the trailer and also the legal papers to see that everything is OK with it.
B. You will receive a notification from the shipping company as a confirmation that the traler is in their custody and also, that the trailer has been tested.
1. After that, you will have to make a wire transfer via bank account on the a Global Cargo Agent name and address, as a guarantee, and send the payment information to a Global Cargo service.
2. They will verify the Money Transfer, and if everything is in order, they will deliver the trailer to your door step.
3. After you will receive the trailer and you will be completely satisfied with it, you will instruct them with your decision.
C. If by any reason, you will not be satisfied with the product, you will call them to come and pick up the trailer at and also refund your money back.
The service is 100% safe.


My best regards,
Dawn
