Suspected eBay Scam Toyota Tundra 4X4 $14,000

Here is your featured eBay Motors suspected scam of the morning. It’s a 2013 Toyota Tundra Crew Max 4X4 Pickup for a scamming best price at only $14,000. These scammers who appear to be registering new eBay sellers accounts nightly have the run of the place.

One of our searches revealed a scammer that had achieved a feedback score of (-2) and is still going. Doc suspects these scamming eBay accounts are being set up with someones stolen identity and credit card. So far it appears that the scammers will continue scamming until eBay don’t get their fees and suspend the accounts.

If a persons identity was stolen, chances are they reported their credit card stolen. While that card was probably verified to open the sellers account. But if it’s reported stolen eBay will not get paid and eventually will turn the account over to collections. If this happens that persons credit score takes a dive, and they may have to pay eBay to get the acct removed from collections.

Guess that fraud is an accepted online business plan. It’s sad to see this happening but it’s just eBay life i guess.

From this quickly deleted eBay Motors forum discussion that we recovered from a Google cached page:

It seems that ebay does not want to take action to combat fraud and scammer

I am recently moved back at my residence house in Lincoln, NE because i just finished the divorce with my ex wife. Shipping can be arranged and I will cover and handle the shipping anywhere in US. The truck will arriving at your home in 3-5 days. You can see the truck before committing to buy it and to eliminate any concerns. From the moment that the truck arrives at your door, you will have 5 days to test drive the truck or inspected anywhere (dealership or personal mechanic). If the truck doesn’t match to my description or if you find anything wrong with it, you can send it back at my expense with no questions asked, but I’m sure that will be not the case…
If interested, e-mail me your whole name and phone # and I will forward it to eBay so they can send you more details on how this works.

Thank you,
Roberto

Just called you, but no answer… Got your info and first thing in the morning I’ll start the transaction through eBay and they will send you the information regarding how to purchase the truck.

Please email me as soon as you’ll hear from them so I’ll know we are on the right way.

Thanks!
Roberto

Bottom line is: If you are new to eBay Motors and stumble into one of these scams and swallow the sucker bait, your money will be gone in a flash!
