Ebay Scammers Selling Corvettes Beware !!


Hi All,

These ads keep appearing on ebay .

please spread the word beware .

They are a Scam.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1977-R-Corvette-5-7-Auto-T-Top-St...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corvette-C3-Stingray-Chevrolet/16...

I am guessing that if anyone emails the seller they wil get a reply saying that the seller is working away on a oil rig or similar and the deal has to be handles by Paypal.....

BEWARE !!!
Thanks

I have just sent an enquiry , I will post the reply .

jeff

Re: Ebay Scammers Selling Corvettes Beware !!


Ive just had dealings with a scammer on ebay in relation to a Bentley continental GT I was trying to buy, weeks of time and emails wasted but thankfully no money lost, on a similar note a friend recently had a text from first direct saying they think there was fraudulent activity on their account could they call them on the number in the text, which they did and sadly gave their account details, next thing they were having payments going out of there account and turns out they used the details to take out a loan of £20k and another friends card this week had been cloned and £6k gone in 2 days, scary world out there at the moment

Re: Ebay Scammers Selling Corvettes Beware !!


I was selling a Watch on Ebay - many contacts they all wanted my email address - saying "contact me back on your email not through Ebay, "Can you send me more Pics" etc, etc, the one "gent" offered me an extra £1000 if I could get it to somewhere in South Africa by the weekend for his Grandson's Birthday - I asked him for his Mother's Maiden name and Bank Account details so I could send it directly to his Bank for the manager to keep it safe for him in the Safe - needles to say..........

At least since I have reported them to Ebay the listings have been removed....

As Shaw Taylor once said "Keep em peeled".
