    Ebay Scammers

    I've seen too many car scams in forums and on ebay that I've decided to take action. Please READ.

    I've actually seen a guy steal pictures out of the members rides section of 7thgencivic and then post the car for sale on ebay.

    SO, I thought I would post up the site that a buddy of mine has been working on with me. We're hoping that car clubs, or whatever will post up some scams they find in the forums to help people out. We ended up catching 3 cars illegally being sold on ebay the week after the civic one. So we decided to start up a forum where they could try to trace them down.

    www.scamboards.com

    The site really can't be found right now in search engines, but we're planning on getting the site "live" in like a week.


    There is still a lot more that has to be added, but I'd love for people to check it out and be so kind as to register. Hopefully if the number or people grows some, we can really put a dent in the scum on ebay.

    That's really what we're hoping for here.


    AND... my final request. If you find or hear of any shady stuff going down on ebay.... POST IT or let me know. We want to let people to know that there is a lot of bad stuff going down on ebay as well as the internet in general

    Just Register, and Notify the board if anything crazy would shop up. We'll take it from there and try to remove them from ebay and whatnot.

    I appreciate it a lot.

    If you belong to any other car threads or forums, please spread the word. I've seen 2 car problems within the last month on other car forums. So I know it's all over the place.

    If the people who run this site would want to put a sticky somewhere or something about scamboards, It might help? I'm just not sure what they think about it.

    I'd apprecaite any feedback or remarks.

    Right ive just had a word with a guy who has my money i traced his name address etc as he replied to my emails with,

    cheers jason

    and cheers mr pazoney.

    so jason pazoney i have you!!!

    Anyway i sent a email to him with his address and name above it to which he replied how he made a mistake, actually i caught him scamming,

    The ins and outs off it are, he sells false items 25 times over, and askes for money to be sent to him, he gives some one elses paypal account details and then explains to them that he gave out wrong details and they transfer a smaller amount of money to him- he lets them keep $100.

    right ill explain more!!!

    I payed 1200, to the wrong person then they payed scammer 1100

    worrying to read:

    "The other main drawback is that auctions are beyond the protective cover of the Sale of Goods Act. It means goods dont have to be of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose like they do in a shop, says Keith Richards, author of Which? magazines 450 Legal Problems Solved. Its important to be aware that that is the risk you are taking. It doesnt mean you are going to be sold a duff, but if something goes wrong you dont have the comeback you normally would.
