Cheeky ebay scammer back again

1957 DBD 34 Goldie £7,200,  plus all of his other fleet listed. Does anyone know how to report him. Or torment him.

Its easy (sort of) at top right of screen see help and contact, select contact us (phone/chat/email)
then select buying and from the popup select buying a vehicle. The subsequent screen will have a button to report an item.
Select the contact us tab and put the item number into the box then press find, then click on the item found and follow the instructions
Done it for 251565391385 the cold star

Will someone explain how this is a scam? Is it to get the £500 deposit but not provide the bike?

Waiting for some idiot stupid brainless ok... unfortunate... buyer to send payment upfront, after gaining trust by making the victim believe in fairytale stories.

Good for them.....but maybe they should act before they list the items on behalf of the scammers!!

It's still good of the likes of you to draw these particular listings to out attention and top marks for the forums that enable you to do so.

 I wonder how it'd go to liaise with eBay, and win it with a offer they can't refuse, and then don't pay and see if they lodge a complaint...  *fight* *work* *bash*
