A discussion about eBay Motors told of this guys Porsche 911 that a scammer had stolen his photos and description and listed it the motors venue. Guy goes on to say that the listing ran to it’s completion bringing 60k. As like back in 2004 when ebms was founded, eBay did absolutely nothing. Someone’s going to get phished out of their money!
This is totally irresponsible by the motors team ignoring scams on their website. What’s even more irresponsible is nothing has changed about eBay and Fraud in over 15 years. All execs care about is the fees! AND Vehicle Purchase Protection does not cover SCAMS! 😥
Even worse than the winning bidder possibly getting defrauded, the seller can send second chance offers to the other bidders. Motor Vehicle scams are the most dangerous on all of eBay. It’s been going on since before this website went online in 2004.
As you can see above the seller canceled two high bids. Other members often place high bids on fraudulent auctions trying to warn others it’s a scam. But this seller just cancelled the bids. Always verify the legitimacy of any auction or fixed price listing.
