Buyer Beware - eBay Scam?
Hi -there have a been some RIBs advertised on eBay at very low prices and short duration auctions.
The advertiser claims that the transaction is covered by the eBay protection scheme. I believe that this is a scam as
(a) you are encouraged to contact the seller direct
(b) he gives what he says is a work email [so you would not surprised if you could not contact him]
(c) the short duration might convince you to get in quick before the RIB goes (d) he claims that it is covered by the eBay Buyers Protection Scheme - but boats are NOT covered
(e) the same advertiser has advertised at least two good, different, RIBs
I have emailed eBay; and I note that they appear to have removed a couple of RIB adverts; but I have not (yet) received any official response from them.
Example - a Avon Jet Rib 320DL Boat, Tender for 99p !! -with just 4 hours to go. eBay appear to have (correctly in my opinion) removed this advert.
There are of course many legitimate adverts on eBay.
