    Ebay Scammers

    I bid on an 04 1300R (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...%3AEF%3AUS%3A2) which I did not win. And here is what I received in my e-m ail from 2 different people. I spoke to the seller yesterday and he told me that the ski was sold in Dallas and was picked up the day after the bid expired.

    Fercho,
    When ebay sends any type of email to you it will always have your registered full name not your screen name same with Paypal if you get an email addresed to your sceen name forward it to [email protected] and they can track it to help shut this stuff down. and they will also send a confirmation back to you that it was not from them. I have been taken once on ebay and after enough research found the guy and made his life miserable I ended up $175 ahead of the game by the time it was over. I hate ebay scammers!!! I have over 400 feedbacks with 100% rating honesty pays.

    dont do it that scamers way... tell the guy you will bring a certifyed check in his name, after you check out the ski, that you can cash at the bank together or run paypal off your laptop at a location like mcdonalds that has linkups available ... I did the gp thru ebay/paypal this way after checking out the ski and having loaded it up on the trailer,no prob.. I think paypal also has an escrow account for large purchases that need deposits .. these to be released when agreeable to both partys...this deal had to many ins,outs and twists to sound solid... beware

    over 200 buys so far...

    Its sad how many people pull this crap.
    Problem is theres not enough time in the day to turn them all in.
    Looks like 50 % of the listings end early
    Sold my ass they didnt get the bid they wanted so they ended early
    I would not waste my time with this guy obvious scammer.
    Free shipping Money gram, give us a break sorry Fernando keep looking.
