A very nice Eldorado for sale on eBay. But is it kosher? The seller also lists many cars and boats and I don't know why but I'm suspicious.

No it’s not genuine.

The same crook has been posting on Fleabay for a couple of years having hacked other peoples accounts and I’ve given up reporting, I must have done so well over 100 times.

I’m reluctant to say on a public forum what his weak point is, but even though he changes style a lot he always leaves the same telltale. Happy to share by private message though.

There are also several other obvious hints such as selling for a friend, email me direct etc

I’ve reported loads of these, for what difference it makes!
Same format, odd starting price, 2nd image is the page with email address request and  a buy it now too good to be true. Location - ‘at UK’. ‘Selling for a friend’, ‘thank you for understanding etc’. Loads of listings in the same format from the same seller. 

I find it really annoying that eBay can’t stop this before they’re even listed. It’s been going on for years. I even get them sent as listings that might interest me from eBay itself!

It's gone butwill have been a scam..
These scumbags are a real nuisance, cluttering up Ebay with their bogus "sales". It takes a minute or two but I always report them and send a brief email to the account owner to tell them they've been hacked...

Cheers,

If it looks to be too good to be true then it probably is. Simples.

I know it won't make any difference, but I reported it and three other Fake Guzzi adverts. 

I have reported them many times before.  But they keep coming back.

Reported a few yesterday they went quick time easy to spot
1) Stupidly low price
2) Second pic has e-mail address a buy it now price and notes not to bid or contact via e-bay
3) Meet seller with cash ...yeah right
4) No seller details at all
5) Selling for a friend/seller abroad
6) many other adverts all pics at different locations

Report to e-bay as "Avoiding fees THAT gets their attention

Pretty obvious IF you turned up at the location given with cash you are likely to loose your cash quick smart  I even sent a report to local Police ...one time maybe these scammers will be met either by a Police sting OR a bunch of bikers .... ready for the scum ...but I doubt it
