How did you manage to jump the bidding from 499 to 100,000? It bid's in increments ????

GOOD LUCK...

How is this ribnet 'sting' operation working? I'm not really au fait with ebay, in fact just made my first purchase! Are you just trying to force him to withdraw the item?

No just making sure someone doesn't loose a lot of dosh, this one was fairy easy to spot but some have been a lot sharper but still a scam.

Problem is e bay are very slow to do anything about them and there is no protection despite what they claim.

"Dear Sir,

150

By the way, Bank wire or telegraphic Transfer as Payment method"

Not fair - the man is a cad! He is charging me more than you Pete - must be something about me he thinks is a little fishy.................

Don't you dare try to outbid me - I really want this engine and I AM going to have it - will even send hime the cash in an envelope in advance to make sure nobody else gets it!!!!
