Default Biggest Scam Ever...

wow people are really dumb. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=230196755795

I almost lost my money once. It was like this but it was a 69 yenko camaro. 7000$ shipped. It all sounded legit so i wired the money and the lady asked me if i knew the guy and i said no and she said alot of scams are going on with, money gram and that wiring money ****. I lost 700 bucks for some insurance **** to get my money back, but still so many scams on ebay. I would never buy a car off of ebay unless ive seen it in person.

2850$ buy it now...shipped...thats impossible prob over 10grand+ invested in it.

I already sent a report to ebay, guys probably going to get banned.

And now we have come to the best part.The intake and valve covers were powder coated and a 3-piece chrome strut tower brace was installed.
That's the best part?

This is the CarFax for it. Funny it's listed in Illinois, but the new owner is in Wisconsin? And the car's color is listed as orange, which from the photos, I guess you might, just maybe, could call it that. But it looks like it used to be orange judging from the underbody shots.

Hmm, its does seem fishy only because how could they accept $2850 shipped? Seems like a way low price.

If you think paypal is safe you definitely don't know what you are talking about - I got burned for $1500 and they gave me $200 back.

yeah paypal was gonna end up screwing me over in the same fashion, only giving me 200 back of the 400 i spent. luckily for me, i have paypal linked to a credit card, not bank account, so i went straight to the CC company and disputed it with them, bypassing paypal completely, and getting all my money back.

The reason these pieces of **** keep running these scams is because they are getting money, whether we get refunds or not. Pisses me off. Some scumbag ordered a dell computer with my credit card and Dell called me for new payment info because the credit card company kept denying the charge. They didn't give a **** that I live in MI and they were sending it to CA. Then they wouldn't give me the guys full name and address, although they started to. Good thing that Citibank noticed a $1 test charge and had flagged my account, otherwise more free $ for a waste of food.
