Default Avant loader eBay scam.

Just been playing this guy (or girl as she says her name is Amy) about an avant loader.
Seen it on Sunday night, late on advertised as in N.I .... 4100 I thought I like the look of that could do with one, but can't really justify it at the moment (or convince the wife maybe would be truer) . Went to enquire next morning but it was gone!
I spoke with Giles about it as I know he would like one, said it's cheap buy it!
Low and behold it came back on next day in Chesterfield.... same one... scam
Thought I'd do like ross and play along, she told me the same speal, through eBay for my protection. She will arrange delivery as she is based in Northern Ireland...... bonus me too
I'll copy and paste some emails later, let's just say when I told her I'm in Belfast now with an 8x4 trailer and 4k cash she went quite

There are loads of scams on Ebay especially in the Mini Diggers, i even phoned Ebay and asked them what are they doing about it, Any ad that says i don't look at my computer much so leave your emil address or mobile phone number will 99% be a scammer, i like to play them along for a while, they always will tell you that they are working away so can't show you the machine but they will have it delivered to you on approval ( yeh right) all you need to do is pay via pay pay if you don't like the digger they will refund you!! Last year i was selling my Fermec 860 on Gumtree for 12k and low and behold it appeared on Ebay for a buy it now of 6k so i made contact and the guy text me all the usual crap he was away in Ireland the Machine was in Scotland and he would get it transported to mein Kent free of charge, i text him it's funny that the digger is in Scotland as from where i am looking it's still sitting in my yard in Kent you Fecking piece of eastern Europ**n scum ! funny i didn't get anymore response after that. There is a pattern with all of these ads and Ebay should easily be able to create some software to stop all of this as i told them. If it looks like a cheap bargain or it looks too good to be true it will be!

You would think PayPal would want a few of these scumbags catching and made examples of: I wonder how much they lose over this sort of thing, or do they always manage to wriggle their way out of any obligations.

Paypal lose **** all Chris .... their so called 'safety nets'/protection ain't worth a wank !!

I'd not use it for anything more than an amount you can afford to lose ... simples.

so many wriggle outs/ifs/buts/maybe,s/not our problem,s, they aren't the panacea for money transactions they like to make out they are ...... not anymore, anyway.

As the old saying goes ... if it's too good to be true ...... it is!!

Any eBay add where the text is an image of text rather than being text youcan select will be a scam defeats the system as they can't read it as text as it's an image. Just try to select some of the text with phone or computer and you'll see it tries to move the image and won't let you select individual words etc
