Strange, Still no reponse to my "ask the seller a question" two days ago "Can I collect and pay Cash?" - I wonder why - he's been looking at ebay 'cause he's retracted bids 8-)

and even stranger... ebay haven't suspended him yet!

That ID maybe, but not from trying to sell using another one

The flare idea seemed a good one though.....

yeah-but this one is a very carefully orchestrated scam-I think it involves the phishing email that used an exploit of ebay's own front page. the guy has had to sit on the accounts for a month too, just to lose the new member tag.
If we can screw this scam up it'll take him quite a while to set up another.

Guess what-I've just been contacted by someone (who I can't name for legal reasons) who has the scammers home details. He's asked me to publish them.

His details are below...

< Edit: Deleted personal details. JK >

Perhaps you and your friends could drop him a line.


Of course, now his email addy is public in its full form then he's gonna get all sorts of offers from other scammers.... tee hee

OK, I think there's a misprint in the email address as I just got this back:

"This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.

Importavice@yahoo.com"



However, I have added a 'd' to make "advice" and thus far, it hasn't come back.

I just sent him a mail saying I was coming to see him tomorrow in Rome.
