Another eBay scam....(3 posts)

Another eBay scam....CaliforniaDreaming
Sep 19, 2003 2:52 PM
Below is the last message from some scum trying to scam a losing eBay bidder(me). I received an e-mail from this person, blah, blah, blah. You've read it here before. It really is quite a joke. Asked for serial number? Bike's in a box. Told this person serial number is on the box, person can't read the box. Told this person interested if an escrow account of FED COD is used and get this reply. Scary part is that there are poor souls out there that are taken by offers that seem too good.

"I`m sorry but I dont see the serial number.
I'm waiting for your reply with your confirmation so that we can go on with our
deal.

payment requests are illegal ebay auctions. Just report it.
And live with the inevtiable (broken-English)neg. feedback.
