    Default EBay is getting stupid with scammers now...

    ... why don't they pickup on ALL these scammers?

    For instance here you go:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2001-BMW-330-C...QQcmdZViewItem

    Email me on a craap email address and buy this car now for £3500. On the advert no mention of the upgraded wheels, the fact it is a convertible not a coupe or the lambo doors.

    I like looking on Ebay for cheap cars but now all I am getting this ****e

    Annoying really.

    You'd have to be pretty stupid to bid for a BMW M "packet"

    It is far too common on ebay now as John says, ebay is a waste of time now, like all good things it has to come to an end .. There is a 640 on for a buy t now of 29k !! Some greedy bu66er will get conned thinking he is getting a bargain ...

    Bit like that bloke who sold a 19 qiud TENT to some dumb f0ck for about 200 notes..... and he made local news up here, the basket.

    In fact its a well known phrase up here "You can put any old ****e on ebay if you need to get rid of it, and some daft git will pay over the odds for it"

    Someone I know put a COPY (yes, I know, naughty person I don't speak to now) of all the Lord of the Rings films for sale... some dumbass bought them for 8 quid more than they were in the shops on ORIGINAL.... need I say more.

    And yes, sometimes when you're trawling the mire, looking for something decent and proper.... how many times do you jack it in and go elsewhere?

    I don't, and actually haven't EVER bought anything off ebay - not worth the risk, and the sooner people realise this, the better....

    If I can't see it, touch it, feel it, smell it or taste it (or all the lot) I don't want to know.

    once had a email of ebay when i reported a false ad they said on average ebay.co.uk alone get 5,000 false ads a day ebay.com get close on 17,000 aday in usa. and here they have to rely on us to report them so that they can be checked then removed.
