how dya know its a scam? looks a bit too cheap though!

the tailgate is a different shade of blue too
scammers pick a picture from a few months ago then clone someone elses id and submitt an ad,if you write down the item number then re type it in to search for the item it comes back as a ladies mini skirt-someone just used this persons details and pasted the van ad on to page

Theres someting dodgy about this van it was on ebay last week and fetched about £5200 it was located in bradford west yorks , this must be some kind of scam where someone copies someone elses listing after it as finished ( same photos and write up etc ) there is no phone number , Ive come across this before on evilbay. When you email them they say they are out of the country on holiday and will get there friend to deliver it but you must pay the asking price in to there bank account . WHAT A SET OF TOTAL SCAMSTERS THESE LOW LIFES ARE, I WOULDNT TOUCH IT WITH A BARGE POLL fellow dubbers beware!

i know i am a bit switched on,but do these scams work......would anyone actually pay that kind of money out there and then with out going to see it....:confused:
This always baffles me too. surely no one would buy it now and pay via paypal straight away...

I dont see the point in these scams i cant see them working on things like this, would work on silly things that cost a couple of quid as people would pay a few quid straight away.. but ya have to be pretty stupid to buy it now and pay without seeing a vehicle or anything of substantial value...... I dont get it. must just be to pee people off i guess, cos they aint gonna get any money up front surely...:confused:.

It's just some numpty having a laugh.. :*

cally,a lot of people do get sucked in to this,especially when they see a £5k van being offered so cheaply,they have a look at it on ebay and get sucked in by saying it must be too good to be true-then send seller an e mail asking about it,he will reply saying he has someone else coming to see it but if they were definetly serious then they could send £500 by paypal straight away to secure it then pay rest on collection,only for him never to be seen again,

a guy near me lost £12000 after he recieved a letter and e mail telling him he won the spanish lottery but had to pay the money to release the 4 million he won,needles to say he didnt recieve a penny and lost the lot,he went to trading standards and the guy said to him its pretty simple you cant win the lottery if you dont enter - simples

Someone may have had there account hijacked and this is the result

I quite often get Emails telling me that my Bank account has been suspended because someone has tried to access it from some far off Country and God knows how many times I have won Lotteries that I never enter (or probably don't exist)

Have a search for a site called (I think) 419eater.com Its quite funny cos its people who play with the scammers with some real funny results.n
