The ebay scammer is back.

He's persistent...anyone else fancy a play? I'm winning one of them at the moment...

He's 'selling' a 90hp merc so make sure no-one from here gets sucked in by this scum.

If he shit on you so badly, why did you only leave neutral feedback? Rather than a full negative kick in the nuts?!

That wasn't me he shit on.

He didn't catch me- I'm far too clever for that-and besides, I think like a criminal. I hate watching innocent people getting taken for a ride by thieves like this. I'm winning one of his auctions at the moment and will leave appropriate feedback as soon as the auction ends as a warning for others.

The deal with him is this:-he will insist on advance payment and won't allow viewing of the item. If you ask to view/collect in person he'll just ignore you.

You won't receive anything after payment.

A previous ID he used was 3454jane -check the feedback on that. ID's I expect him to use in the not too distant future are:-
Jambograz jjcgw rmwflower bencolbeck leighm3261 itsfun2buyonline theonlytexaspete sukhyrai momclwulff

These ALL appear to have been stolen by him using the ebay frontpage exploit phishing email that was being sent out in July.With a little bit of detective work it's easy to see.

General warning to everyone-(even gArf) DON'T EVER pay for an ebay item via bank transfer. DON'T contact these scammers directly either as they will probably attempt to brute force any paypal account associated with the email address they get. Use ebay's 'send a message ' system and hide your email.

Cool. I'm winning the 1st auction to end-leave me to that one and play with the other 2...make that 3...he's got another one up.

Incidentally, all the scams are direct text/picture copies from smalloutboards.com

Ebay should be informed in no uncertain terms, My Ex runs an Ebay based business, they are totally crap when it comes to being contacted re. a buyer/seller problem. They hide behind endless email addresses. You cannot speak to anyone. Their commision rates are extorsion also. No Ebay fan me :-) Another ploy to stop the scammer is to contact anyone that has bid on his outboards and warn them. The problem with bidding and not paying is that Ebay can issue a non-payment "Strike" against you.

If you speak to this chap - he runs early-warning.org and www.reportauctionfraud.co.uk

His name is andrew and his number is 0870 8744999
http://www.early-warning.org

He attempts to stop scammers and fraudsters and receives very little help from the banks and threats of legal action from ebay!

He maybe able to get a press release about the outboard fraudster and make ebay do something about it.

I spoke to him yesterday and suggested a "Ebay makes money from scammers" headline on the basis that they get the commission plus the paypal fees. He is looking into it.

He contacted the banks and offered a direct feed into their system with compromised card details (before the bank knows about them), they replied "what do you want us to do about them?", they then replied they didn't have the resources.!

As there is *no* way of reporting mail order credit card fraud in the Uk (unless you are the customer) it's easy to say the least.

A recent fraudster was doing card fraud at the same address for 4 years! After a lot of work with early warning and ourselves four people are helping police with their enquiries and 200,000 goods were seized.

Looks like the Uk might overtake Nigeria as the fraud capital of the world.

If you leave a massive bid on all the stuff that he's listed ie 10k you'll win them all. It'll only show one bid higher than the next highest bid, so it wont be obvious for a while what you're doing.
