Thread: Ebay Scam
Looks like a scam, especially given the sellers location...
reported it to ebayJohn S -
REALLY?! How did anyone ever sell anything if having feedback of zero means you're a scammer? Using bank transfer for payment is pretty common among businesses...the guy IS new after all and is probably requesting this to avoid rubber cheques. Having said that, he *could* accept PayPal or Cash On Collection...and maybe he would...if anyone bothered to ask?
I think it's a case of "buyer beware" rather than burning the seller on the stake.

As I said, the text is copied from an old listed (along with the reason for selling, very suspect).
I did contact try to get a phone number out of the seller before I posted.
I've seen a number of suspect listings for CNC routers, this is part of larger scam I suspect.
so we have noted!!
i asked him earlier where in the country he was a postcode anything and got no reply.. yet..
it almost mirrors another chap on ebay twice trying to sell a cnc he didnt own several month back who geoffrey had a run in with,
theres nothing wrong with saying heads up lads this one stinks.
edit looks like its been pulled.

I agree, it's probably a scam but not definitely. My point is that it could be perfectly innocent and we're all accusing some poor newbie of being a scammer.
