x2. Anytime the ad states "contact buyer before bidding", you'll be in for some entertaining communication.

He said he was in Bangor Maine. I told him I was an hour away and would be there with cash and a trailer.... nothing but crickets.
Does this scam really work on anyone anymore?

Email:

"Good day,

Thank you for your interest in my 1980 Land Rover Defender . The car is accurate, as described and seen in the pictures provided, always been garaged including at the present time, it has a clear title and it can be registered into your name at any time, everything on it works properly, this means that it needs no repairs and no work done besides the usual general and cosmetic maintenance.

To save both of our time I'd like to make everything clear at this point, I am selling this car because I need money as fast as possible to meet a payment deadline so this transaction must be completed fast as time is my main priority, the book value for this vehicle is much more than what I'm asking for it now but I am willing to sell it for this price for immediate payment so before we proceed with any arrangements for purchase I must ask you to confirm that you have a real interest in this car and the necessary funds to make this purchase readily available.

The price that I'm asking you for the car is US $ 9,100.00, this price includes the door to door shipping, handling and insurance fees for shipping within the continental US. I'm located in Bangor, Maine.

This transaction will be handled by eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection, this service will help ensure a safe and easy transaction by providing accurate transaction terms and guidelines and provide you with a 3 days inspection period to evaluate the car after you receive it.

If you have funds readily available and are able to purchase this car in a timely manner please confirm to proceed with making arrangements for purchase. I just need your full name, complete address and eBay ID (if you have any) that you want to start the deal.

Thank you,
Kevin

That was on eBay a few months ago, it was in FL IIRC. I'm surprised Josh didn't post the link from the last time it was for sale.

Yeah, that's the Florida truck. Check his feedback, it's kinda fishy - lots of "buying and selling" cars.

How can you report that to eBay? I got the same email and then some...

I told him I wanted to see it in person, this is the BS he sent me:

Please take a look at the steps you have to take in the eBay VPP program :

1) First we will register this transaction with eBay Vehicle Purchase
Protection.
Vehicle Purchase Protection program ensures that you receive the vehicle you
paid for, with coverage up to $50,000 against fraud or material
misrepresentation.

2) The payment method is bank to bank wire transfer. The money are going into
their secured account and they will hold it there and insure you in the
transaction until the car is delivered to you.

3) I will have the car shipped to you using DAS auto shippers as I have a
customer discount voucher for I've used their service in the past years.
Shipping to you will take approximately 6 days. The car will be shipped using
insured door to door delivery, it will arrive at your address along with all the
necessary documents (including the transferred title, odometer disclosure,
service records, pink slip, etc).

4) There is a inspection period. If you find anything wrong with the car you
have the right to send it back to me, on my own expense and get a full refund
from eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection.

5) If nothing is wrong with the car (i am sure you will love it) then we can
close this deal and i will get my money from eBay escrow account.

I will wait your response.

Regards
Kevin
