Have I missed something here - how do we know he is fraudulent - we suspect it sure, but lifting someones description of a product hardly make it a crime.

I have to add here that I think it IS fraudulent!

My bet is that you won't get a reply from ebay (other than "we have recieved your email" - auto reply)

I wonder if the items get removed from ebay - doubt it - although I hope i'm proved wrong.

Lifting the description is a crime as he's lifted the pictures too-even if he IS selling real engines he sure as hell isn't selling the ones he's saying he is as they are in Florida! Add to that the guy hasn't left feedback for the 'buyers' of his previous items-suddenly getting feedback you arent expecting is a pretty good way of realising you've been hacked...

Great job Nos4r2,

Your next assignment is to hunt the bugger down and torture him.

Ok, safety equipment at the ready...
Wonder quite how much it'd hurt if I fired a phosphorus flare up his arse?

He might not enjoy it much but I would. I hate these bastards with a passion. They cost me a 2000 sale on a car last year when they hit 'buy it now' while I was in negotiation with someone 'off ebay'. They saw it had gone and assumed I'd sold it and bought elsewhere.

I bet they won't either!

Has anyone who emailed ebay had a reply from them yet - I doubt it.

All the time the bas***ds are allowed to get away with it they will and if anything proliferate.

Like Spam and Viruses these problems could almost be wiped out tomorrow if the powers that be did something about them - its technically so easy. However there is too much money involved.

Ebay could stop these fraudsters by ensuring they were dealing with legitimate people. Might affect the amount of stuff they sell on auction however!

Ebay scam

I've bid on all the motors they have listed. please allow me to have some fun and don't up my bids. I will travel to werever they will move the motors to after the auction.usually it's somewhere in Spain. I"ve done this before, beter then reporting them. EBay is a joke on security,all's they care about is getting their money, kinda like big government
