REALLY Stupid Ebay Scammer

Check out this auction Obvious Scam and look at the seller's other item also.

Do a search on this other bike he tried to sell item number 4523448309

He's so stupid that he tries to sell Foreign bikes here without even explaining that they're foreign. He has mileage discrepancies in the Repsol auction and his descriptions are always the same. Oh yeah, he also managed to buy the Repsol on 4/5/2005.

Anyone know the best way to get his ass banned from Ebay?

Re: REALLY Stupid Ebay Scammer

Contact eBay and inform them of the obvious discrepancies..

Re: REALLY Stupid Ebay Scammer

Yeah, Ebay got him about 3 hours after I sent the email! Nice.

Re: REALLY Stupid Ebay Scammer

Scammers suck. My friend "won" an auction on a BMW 650 that looked legit and was only 2hrs away.

The guy asked him to send the money to an escrow account, which is reasonable. Luckily, we researched the escrow company and it was a bogus one established overseas.

Oddly enough, he was hit by another scam not long after winning the first bike. One of the other bikes he bid on and lost sent him a "second chance," claiming the winner had defaulted. This was also bogus.

Be careful.

Not very odd. That happens a LOT.
