Last time (. Nov 207) I asked I got this reply. Lots of mention on Facebook.

Re: Jensen VGK244F

Hi again, I have relocated to Berlin due to work commitments and viewing won't be an option. I suggest going through PayPal for your peace of mind. As for payment we will use PayPal's - Pay After Delivery payment facility which offers the buyer 14 days for the car to be delivered/inspected before any funds are released to me. Regarding delivery someone will collect the car and will transport it safely to your location. (I will mail the access keys to the delivery guy once we've sorted through PayPal).

Please read the PayPal (Pay after delivery) terms by clicking on the link below:

https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/p ... very-terms

This purchase protection guarantees that the car is exactly as I have described it; in other words, once you've paid through PayPal - PAD, you will have the chance to inspect it as i won't get paid by PayPal before delivery. I will get paid only after you confirm that you have received the car in good order as agreed.

Let me know if you want to go ahead as I still have quite a few more offers from potential buyers. If you do want to go ahead please confirm your PayPal email and address along with your daily contact number.

Kind Regards,
Steve

So only the name seems to have changed.

It’s a scam.

I belong to a Facebook group who took down over 2000 listings last weekend alone.

EBay only take them down if they are reported, they don’t check themselves.

The scammers are getting wiser and ban previous bidders from bidding again.

EBay state not to communicate outside of EBay.

One of the tricks is add their contact details etc as a photo so that EBay cannot detect it automatically and remove it.

Buyer Beware

Be aware that PayPal's "Pay After Delivery" DOES NOT offer any protection to buyers of motorised vehicles.

The Paypal Pay after Delivery page you see from the scammers is FAKE.

It's hard to spot at first

The Pay After Delivery "not applying to motorised vehicles", I learnt from the Motorcycle News bikes for sale Website, not the fake link to which you refer.

Looks like E-Bay have listened.

Scammers have been putting email/mobile details in
the listings which is against EBay rules.

They now seem to be blocking those images

Re. Emails not being listed due to E-bay rules,business sellers emails are often listed, if you scroll down the page on a listed item,and look on left, you will find address and then click on" further information" and phone and email will be found.
I often look there first to find out where an item I am interested in is actually being sent from .(China or wherever.)
