This Seller Got Whacked TWICE By The Buy Now Bandit!

On His Third Re-Run It Looks Like He Left Out The BUY NOW, A Wise Decision!!!

eBay Has Rolled Out New Buyer Activity Limits But It Looks Like They Have Not Cured The Problem! These Nigerians Just Set Up A Bunch Of Accounts And Burn Them Up One At A Time!!

eBay Really Needs To Verify New Users Identity And Contact Info! They Just Try To Use Band Aids To Repair Shot Gun Wounds!

But Then Again eBay Is Profiting Off These Bandits! And Laughing All The Way To The Bank!!!

 

Scammed not once BUT TWICE !!!

I posted a car for sale with a "buy now" a few days ago...was suppose to end today. I kept getting emails like this one:Dear pixie21619, Hello, i am an agent that have chains of clients and one of my client has made a quote on the type of ur item that was why i like to purchase it,my client can only raise a cashiers check as a method of payment, and the cashiers check will include the shipper's charges and my commission as an agent. you are to cash the check at any cashing point in ur area then deduct the sales of ur item the left over is for the shippers charges and my commission as an agent,you will need to wire the excess fund to the shipper directly so that they can come for the pickup of the item from ur place,this is the way we have been dealing with all the sellers and they have been very faithfull. Will you be able to wire the excess funds immediately you recieve the check?because a cashiers check is honour and cashable same day it is received. So if you agree to this terms of payment then forward ur contact address where you want my client send the check. and and you can talk to me directly. Everytime I got one I put them on my "block bidders list" I didnt know until today you can stop bidders with (0) from bidding...anyways after about 4 of these someone did a buy now and it was the same kinda thing....I knew it was a scam so I relisted and then again 5am this moring someone else did a buy now same scam....once again I relisted with a buy now...this is part of my kids xmas gifts...anyways will I get my $40 fee back from "ebay motors" since those 1st two was "scams" AND since I have put a "block bidders with (0) feedback will that stop them ?
