Okay so I'm checking out Ebay cars and go to the main section that shows all the cars up for grabs and in 10 minutes I found 20 scam adverts such as click here The adverts uaually have a buy it now price that is frankly ridiculously cheap and to be honest, if you did send the money you deserve to lose it all.
There is uaually a contact email from yahoo, Kred or msn (free set up and no checks - geddit)
There is usually some spiel about the 'sellers' mailbox being full or inaccesible so you have to us ethe freebie email.
The cars' location is a bit vague.
Some buyers are registered in the States.
Now, my questions are, if I can find 20 without trying there must be more and some of the ones that I found were a day or two old. Why do Ebay not have one person that is deleting these pronto and why do they not put a sticky on the top of each page warning people (gullible even though they may be as they think they can buy a car that they could sell to a dealer for treble what they 'paid')?
I feel that there is something rotten in the car section and I suspect that the management are not doing all that they could or is one being a little too cynical?
Although in the past I have purchased cars at an auction- here you certainly get to see them and have period on site to accept or reject - but buying a car 'blind' as on E-bay makes my mind boggle Who would -I guess someone must- but they must be ripe for a rip off.
