Two scam listings on Ebay UK

Recommended Posts

the first one is empty so-to-speak, but the second one‘s still there, despite the external link in clear violation of eBay rules - but link is cleverly constructed, letting it look like directing to an eBay page to the uninformed

There's a similar listing for a melodeon been flagged on melodeon.net this morning...

 

I more-or-less stopped buying anything on eBay about 4 years ago - far too flaky...

Seen them a year ago, I wonder who the real owners are...

These guys pop up every so often. They offer 1930s Gibson and 1950s fender guitars for pennies on the dollar. High end bicycles and tools, along with hundreds of other items. They hacked me a couple of years ago and used my account name to list 6 or 7 hundred items. They also instruct you not to bid but to contact them for a buy it now on all of the listings.

The scam is easy to spot because they always use the same pictures. 

I report them to ebay as soon as the same old pictures of concertinas and guitars show up.
