2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited eBay Scam 221250331590

This is an example of severe abuse of the eBay motors system, and they are doing absolutely nothing to stop it! “Scammers are listing what i call “sucker bait scam cars” and are cancelling bids to keep the auction price low. They hope you will contact them for more photos or details. They also will work whatever bidders that have not been canceled with fake second chance offers. Just look at the bid history in these two new examples we have today. Scammers run a listing to completion and immediately…

2005 Ford F-250 Phishing Scam eBay 261227343439

Wonder if these phishing car scams will ever end? I have a hard time believing eBay don’t know these used car phishing scams are going on right under their nose! Is John Donahoe so hell bent on turning eBay into an Amazon clone that he just ignores eBay used auto sales? After all Amazon does not sell used cars. Donahoe has nothing to compete with in that department. Not knowing how the chain of command in eBay works – it’s possible that the motors team are powerless to stop this…

Fraudsters are up bright and early listing their phishing auctions. Every day it seems there are new FREE seller accounts registered with high dollar vehicles listed for sale. “Yep every vehicle seller gets SIX FREE listings in a 12 month period.

It’s nothing but a revolving door of fraud. eBay eventually pulls most of the fraudulent listings, but the fraudsters just come back and register another account and the cycle of fraud continues.” I personally feel this…

I thought our friends at eBay Motors were paying attention? These two suspected scams have all the markings of phishing fraud intended to hook some sucker. Vehicle price advertised is unrealistically low, sellers are advertising an external email address to contact them at, and threatening to cancel bids if buyers don’t contact them first. (eBay policy violation?) And the vehicles listed location does not match eBay’s free experian auto check history report. The 1st is this 2008 Range Rover Sport HSE that really looks suspicious.
