Title: New ebay scam.
Post by: A10 JWO on 18 January, 2018, 15:58:31
This guy is now stealing genuine ID's. These have a postal address down the page. It appears to be a normal auction with a few bids. There is no email address in description this time so it all looks good so far. Then he will get a message asking for a Buy it Now price, then the scam begins. The greedy buyer accepts the price and sends the demanded deposit to hold it, good bye money !! The Scammer nearly always has campers, caravans and cars in his other adverts. He also leaves a trade mark that I always spot ( most days of the week ). I will not reveal his trade mark on here. Be careful, no money till you have laid hands on goods.

I report them straight away so you wont find them, just report 20 listings ten mins ago. Just go on ebay newly listed BSA they go on there all the time. They probably monitor the forums.

There's a batch on there right now though still with a contact email in the text - I quite fancy the minty Square four for 3700, but the Rocket 3 for 3000 sounds like a bargain  :-\ I wonder when my Golden Flash will appear again  >:(
