Ebay scam is back.
« on: 31.08. 2014 16:27 »
This guy keeps coming back, found a BSA Triple for a stupid price and his other items, tractors, Mexico Escort etc etc. Can someone who knows how please report or torment this person. He claims to be in the north of Scotland

Yes, I saw him again too! He does get reported to ebay but just opens another account....120 odd vehicles for sale from an account opened the day before!!
The last time he did it I sent him an email via ebay saying I wanted to send a deposit but wouldn't be at a computer so could he contact me....he did with his email, first name (Ian) and mobile number...changed my mind about deposit though!!!!
His ads are all taken from genuine ones previously on ebay, I imagine if someone has actually bought the car/bike etc and then sees him advertising it again....they're not going to be very happy!

I reported this guy twice yesterday, he must have some web tool set up that lists all the items in one go! I feel sorry for the poor fool that buys one of his fake listings! Thing is how many PayPal accounts has this guy got or had in the past, surely you need a new bank account every time you have a new PayPal account because he must get his PayPal accounts revoked every time they try and claim a refund.

Well done lads, he is so easy to spot; not that bright.

Have been reading a little about these kinds of scam, seems they allure buyer into not using paypal or bank, but to send payment by Western Union or MoneyGram etc, then it's cashed using fake ID, and money gone forever.

 Should've called and set him up.......or pass it on to Fraud guys
 Saw half a doco. show on the telly the other night about a online dating scam, and they tracked the guy to Nigeria and went and set him/them up, and the perpetrators got 3 years jail, and I think some got their money back
