Something sketchy about 1997 Red D90 Soft Top Ebay

Hey Everyone, I wanted to share something I came across. There is a 1997 Red D90 Soft top on ebay (Land Rover Defender Soft Top SUV 2dr | eBay) with same VIN# SALDV2248VA113350 as an AA Yellow 1997 Defender 90 Soft top being earlier this month by different seller (Land Rover Defender Soft Top Sport Utility 2 Door | eBay).

The fact that seller of the Red D90 "dual2" has a 0% feedback and only 8 items in his history would lead me to believe that this is some sort of scam. This and the fact that the Red D90 #1373 has the real vin# SALDV2243VA113739 (shoutout to Defender registry Land Rover FAQ - Repair & Maintenance - Defender NAS VIN Registry:1997 Defender 90 Automatic (Soft Top and Station Wagon) (NAS)) And that with that VIN# can see it's currently registered in CT yet is shown in FL.

Just want to let everyone know to not fall for this.

Requests for more info by "dual2" on ebay have gone unanswered.

Happy Holidays!

Seems like there's more nonsense and scammery listings for Defenders than real ones. This guy likely didn't care about doing the work to make his fake VIN match up to the right type of car. Go to LRFAQ, search on color and voila.

I imagine one of two things:
1. Wanted to list the vehicle immediately, did not have the VIN in front of him, and simply listed with a copy and pasted VIN. If this is the case, perhaps he is naive and innocent, and would have been better just using all 1s or 0s.
2. He maliciously did not want you to run the VIN.

Regardless, the truck will sit for months at that price.
