Another Scam?

This can't be for real:

1990 Land Yacht 36ft, Tandem Axle, Leather NO RESERVE

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...&category=6737

Seems fishy to me.

I live almost walking distance from Yonkers Ny. If anyone would like for me to "check it out" I have to head that way in a few days from now.All I can say Yonkers of not the "normal" place for a MH and on my guess they have no clue what they have for they took it form a poor soul that owed some cash to them.

isn't that "preapproved bidders" thing often a tipoff of a scam?

Power Seller

I don't think it's a scam except for the sense that he won't sell it without pre-approval.

His feedback is good; he's a Power Seller

Ebay feedback

Oftentimes a seller's feedback consists of things he himself has bought, but this guy has sold lots.

Well, something has to be wrong other than the minor fiberglass cracks.

Thank you !

Stringing him along

From scammer:

Hello,
I will have the car shipped for you .I will manage the ship and you will have to make a wire transfer via western union for the payment. Let me know soon and i am pretty sure that youll be my buyer.

Thanks !



From me to him after the first email exchange.

Yes, I am very interested in your motorhome, as I am trying to go on a vacation in near future. How does all this work? with you being in England and all. I thought the trailer was in Yonkers NY? Is that in New York City? I appreciate any information you can lend me. Thanks. I look forward to this, and am really excited. How do I ship you the money? I recently sold my house and have it in hand. Let me know so I can see about doing this. I am nervous buying things through the internet. You sound like you have alot of experience, and from your feedback, it appears you're very trustworthy.

Thanks again,

Rob

Bizarre.....

Good job, folks. Y'all saved some unsophisticated person some real problems. Well done!!!

P.S. - Rob, I'll be happy to invest the proceeds from the sale of your home for you! Your e-mail to the "seller" had just the right amount of naivete!

I just bought a motorcycle from Alabama and the seller asked that I call first so he could check my feedback so he wouldn't get jipped. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWN%3AIT

This is how a true auction should look like. I recieved the bike in 7 days..rec'd clear CO and the person included all papers,manuals and even the jets for carburation. Feedback is everything!!!!!!
