Best let me win it-that account I'm using has no ties to my home or email address. It's not good to let scammers get email addys or you'll be deluged with scam paypal email.

in theory, he has to pay a percentage of the final value to ebay - which on a 100k is going to quite alot. lol - i hope ebay have his credit card details.

Unfortunately he'll be using stolen bank/credit card details from a successful phishing email.

However, when/if it gets taken from the stolen account the real owner will notice a damn sight faster-and Ebay can't keep the money as it would be theft...

oh, i see! - i can't believe how stooopid these stoopid people think other people might be - he must have spent time looking for an outboard to fake and then still made a mistake and called it a 70 rather than a 115. i think his brains must be on the outside of his head - or they should be!

Nah, he just nicked the description and pics from the same site they always do...
I doubt he actually knows what an outboard IS.

The giveaways are the americanisms and post only.
