eBay scams

Just been looking through boats on eBay and noticed hundreds off scams coming up!!

Looking through powerboats, sorted to newly listed and there's loads all from the same seller.

Loads of bowriders, ribs & cruisers.

All with one photo, bare information, you have to provide your phone number & they will call you & all located just in GB.

Thought eBay would've had a better control against the scammers spamming their listings?

Hes been a busy boy !

Difficult for ebay to guard against someone joining purely to rip people off, easy for us humans to spot, difficult for a computer.
