Please keep this thread going if anybody notices any scams..

I had a call from quite a senior crimes investigation team today, very interesting. Probably shouldn't say to much but I think the police are behind times too, i tried to explain what the scammers get up to and directed them to this thread. What we have known for years is only being found out now.

Well the ebay scammers seem to be getting busier at the moment:mad:, and they've put their prices up so they don't stick out as much.

There are loads of scammers at the moment they are even listing the same item twice on EBay, i had an argument with an EBay operator a while back, i got banned from trying to contact someone that i was purchasing an item, so i called and asked why? After a good rant about scam ads and why they are not doing anything to stop them making the listings (which are quite obvious) i pointed out to them that they are a multi million pound organisation thatseems to be incapable of putting some software in to stop these ads, mind you then they would loose their listing fee! Anyhow i was re admitted to my EBay account after my rant. Has anyone noticed that Purplebug mini digger sales have disapeared on ebay i have just found them again trading as Landrovermad2020.

Ltd company doesn't exist and the photo of their sales director, Robert Atkins is actually a photo of George Maisey a financial services mentor!

e.bay isn't just full of too good to be true scams, the scammers also use genuine looking ads for phishing.

Also found their office manager Sarah Thompson. She is in fact Debbie DeVito Flynn (what an awesome name) a Global Real Estate Adviser for Sotheby's

Thought I'd have a look at their stock list. It's not looking good as I went for the first item on the stock list, the Bobcat S330.

I wonder if they are going to deliver it from Lithuania? They seem to have missed out one of the photos they took which shows the hour meter at 5307.6 lol

I've given up bothering to report 'em ... ebay does **** all about it and simply gets relisted the next day :mad::mad::mad:

Morning all, thanks for a great thread which has popped up due to me looking for a mini digger and seeing one on eBay. Become suspicious due to a few little things and when I put in google the eBay user name: landrovermad2020 up popped this thread! Is the feeling that all his listings are a con?

Was specifically interested in the TB016 listed which is eBay item number 393023524044 . (I have tried posting links but not allowed)

Glad of any comments, and thanks again!
