Fraudsters selling RIBs too!

It seems the ebay fraudsters have started selling RIBs now as well as jet-skies. Spotted this last night, has all the trade-marks of a dodgy auction. I just hope the winning bidder knows this and doesn't send any money!

Of course it could be genuine, but add together the zero feedback, new member, escrow payment, and the hidden bidder ID (sneaky - stops anyone called "this-is-a-scam-auction" bidding!) then it do look dodgy don't it?

If the winning bidder pays £2300 for something claiming to be in London without viewing it, he needs his head examining!
