Here are today’s automobile phishing scam listings on eBay Motors
They are ALL “NEW” ZERO (0) FEEDBACK SELLERS (SCAMMERS). I prefer to call these type of listing sucker bait. Fraudsters are listing non-existent bait cars in an attempt to hook a sucker and reel em in with fraudulent emails.
We start with this 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo that is listed by “loimp33” for only $4400 (181154570583).
Next is this 2005 Toyota Tundra Limited that looks gorgeous for only $4800 by “11.oil” (221237905277).
Next is this 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Z-71 for an incredibly low price of only $4600 by “22.smith” (161041581570).
Next is this 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty FX4 that is offered by “kervyc29” for only $11,200 (261227343439).
Last is this 2005 Ford F-250 Crew Cab Diesel for only $$7000 offered by “22ville3” (251286810406).
Folks these vehicles are “SUCKER BAIT” Don’t swallow the hook and let them reel you in!
I’d be willing to bet these scams are using someone’s phished identity and stolen credit card to register the eBay accounts. In my personal opinion, It will take eBay enabling ID Verify for any private seller listing a vehicle to stop these daily revolving door of fraudulent listings.
I do believe that Romanian scammers are mostly behind fraud of this kind, and also include Amazon.com, Craigslist, and Google Checkout. Possibly we could unplug Romania from the www and give them their own little wide area network where they could all scam each other.That’s one option if that country (and any others) can’t control their scammers! Check out this article: Romania home base for EBay scammers. Don’t seem like anything has changed since 2007.
I have also teamed up with another YouTube video blogger CrazeeNyDriver to hopefully get these scams taken down quickly – and to bring you more info about anything that involves eBay. Need eBay help? ask either of us. And be sure to read my article Used Car Buying And Selling Internet Advice.
