Here is another tale of woe from someone that did not do their used car purchase homework!
From this eBay Motors Discussion:

As scammers get better and better…eBay needs to KEEP UP!
We thought we were dealing with eBay purchasing an auto…they were good. They got us!
Look out for: David Soik – Auto Owner Jim Sanders and David Miller

We Learned a hard costly lesson and do not want any one else to suffer.
I no longer trust eBay.
They need to be more helpful and proactive in these cases.
Doc agrees eBay should better protect car buying consumers. But with a tight-azz CEO I doubt eBay will ever hire someone to police their listings for fraud.
It’s really quite simple – eBay does not care if you get scammed on their website. They are only interested in collecting fees and pleasing their investors.
That is very evident in this article we published last month about a licensed dealer who had his photos stolen and put on an a fraudulent eBay Motors Auction.
eBay would not remove this very good looking scam listing. It took the dealer posting about it on eBay’s Forums, and us publishing an article about eBay assisting scammers by refusing to remove fraudulent listings, to finally get the listing pulled. The cars true owner also got pink slapped silly by eBay’s fascist board moderator Liveworld.com.
Item number: 120925319149. Some scammer has our car, told eBay days ago several times. Stopped one guy from sending him 32k for our 60k car.
