Scammers are up bright and early listing their phishing auctions on eBay Motors.
Every day it seems there are new FREE seller accounts registered and vehicles listed for sale.
Yep every vehicle seller gets SIX FREE listings in a 12 month period. They burn up the account and come back for more under another ID. It’s nothing but a revolving door of fraud. eBay eventually pulls most of the fraudulent listings, but the fraudsters just come back and register another account and the cycle of fraud continues.
I personally feel this could be stopped by Enabling ID Verify for any NEW private “Vehicle Seller” as it is now it’s just too easy for some newbie to eBay to get scammed. We all know that eBay could care less if someone gets ripped off on their website. It’s simple eBay Inc is not liable for any off site transactions, which is how the scams operate. They phish the buyer using eBay’s own message center and take the transaction to private email where the victim gets conned out of his money.
Some of these scams require the buyer to Call “eBay Support” to confirm their transaction” doing so gets the victims identity stolen along with his money! eBay Motors has turned into ePay Toilet! It reeks of fraud and John Donahoe could care less. It’s full speed ahead to catch up with Amazon.com and the hell with anyone that gets blind sided in the process. eBay Motors just plain sucks.. What more can i say!
