Its just a forewarning to any one thinking of buying of ebay.

sorry macca,surely someone on here from London will go check in on where this machines(for want of a better word) at.
if it were my neck of the woods id give his door a knock
if you paid him through ebay checkout you should have no problems getting a refund.
good luck and thanks for the nod

Oh shite, sorry to hear you've been conned Macca. If you paid via PayPal you are protected against fraud so you should get your refund ok. Don't just report it to Ebay and PayPal REPORT it to the Police as well, plus Trading Standards and hopefully get the shite locked up for a long time. BTW if you used a credit card to pay PalPal you've got credit card protection as well on all purchases over 100 so try not to worry too much.

Macca at the bottom of the list there is a report button USE it and let ebay know. Looking at the sellers feedback will give you an idea of the items both buying and selling also check their other items for sale.

A little bit of digging shows the same 2 items are offered by a different seller this time, the other item was http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281363159288 sold by the con man that got you.

Its posted across a number of spanish site as well

Google image search ( left click your avitar and select search google for this image. ) is a very good way to check things before you buy.

Glad to hear you have your money back Macca. Ebay is such a good idea, but spoiled by fraudsters. I always insist on collecting and paying when I collect, any scammers loose interest at that stage, although I suppose there is a risk of turning up in some obscure place and being mugged!!! G.

It can happen the other way round too.
I once sold a workbench, the buyer said he would pay cash on delivery and could I deliver it for a fee. I arranged a day/time and delivered it, about 200 mile round trip but when I reached the delivery address there was nobody in !
Fortunately I had the buyers mobile number so he wasn't long in turning up.

Glad to hear you've got your money back Macca. :victorious:

It's the con merchants that spoil eBay for the genuine sellers. Don't be put off buying from eBay, just do your home work by checking the sellers feedback for both seller and buyer. Scammers tend to use an account that has not been used for a while, so that should give you a RED flag to start with. Check the advanced search for item your interested in ticking the completed or sold listings options as scammers will try to sell the same item more than once.

Ask the seller for more photos and questions that only a genuine seller will know about, and if you don't get a response from the seller leave well alone as genuine sellers will take the time to reply if they want to sell their machine.
