|This Car's Buyer Is In Iceland!
She Purchased It 3 MONTHS Ago, And Still Does Not Have The Title Or Export
The Car Itself Is Sitting At A Freight Yard In Virginia, Waiting To Clear US Customs. But Without The Title It Is Going Nowhere!
I Was Contacted By The Buyer And Asked To Help! It Seems eBay Would Not Do Anything, And The Purchase Insurance Does Not Cover Since The Buyer Is Out Of The USA!
eBay Allows Sellers To Set Up Shop To Sell High Dollar Items Like Vehicles Without Verifying Anything About The Seller! All That Matters Is That They Can Pay There FEES!!!
I Used To Say eBay Gave Honor To The Car Business! It Was That Way In The Beginning! But Now The Mighty Corporate Greed For $$$ Has Replaced Trust And Honor!! How Much Worse Does EBM's Reputation Have To Get Before eBay Decides To Clean It Up??
UPDATED 09/24/2005 EAmotors Is Now NARU Along With EliteAutoInc! Apparently Others Have Been Scammed By This Seller Too! eBay Is Working With Its Insurers To Have This Deal Covered By The Purchase Insurance! There Is Also A Thread Going On Over At The eBay Motors Discussion Board About It!

Sorry for being so rude as to send you this email.
My name is Erla Bjarnadottir, I am from Iceland and my eBay username is erla703. I have been reading some of your answers in the discussion boards and thougt maybe you could give me some advise.
I won an Cadillac at an auction on ebay june the 15th, the seller is EAmotors in Florida, and I paid in full by bank wire transfer on june the 20th. ($10.590)
Since then I have been trying to get the title for the car with no succsess, the car dealer gives me the runaround.
She says she has sent the title three times to me and always gets it returned, but it has never seen this side of the Atlantic and I have never even got a tracking number in spite of me asking. I have phoned and sent numerous emails but she does not answer anymore. I opened up an dispute panel at the beginning of august and she replied at first and i sent another qquestion and have not heard a word since then.
I have a representative in the States that I gave a POA to recieve the title but no go, I asked her to send the title by FedEx to the shipping company in Norfolk but she refuses to do so. I dont understand why if she does get it returned in the mail, as she claims.
I have tried to get some help or answeres from eBay and they always say they will get back to me in 24 hours, the last time was august 24th, some 24 hours they have. I do not fir into the buyers protection program because I was in Iceland when the payment went down, (thats in the small writing), anyway I really just want my title so I can ship my car to Iceland, its of no use to me sitting in a warehouse in Norfolk.
I will understand if you just delete this email, I just am at my wits end and could really use some advise.
Thank you for your witty responses in the discussions boards.
With my best wishes

A Happy Ending..
Erla, Finally Got Her Car, Thanks To The Florida State Department Of Motor Vehicles, Who Got Her A Title To It! Hooray!! Apparently eBay was Of No Help! Figures!!
She Sent Me These Emails..
I just wanted to tell you that I got the Cadillac yesterday. It looks great but I have not been able to have it thoroughly checked yet.
Take care and keep in touch
Looks Mighty COLD In Iceland To Me!! It Is A Nice Feeling To Be Able To Help This Very Nice Lady In Another Country.. Sometimes Americans Are Too Busy Chasing The Dollars, And Forget What It Is Like To Help Someone Out That Is In Need!!
Erla Also Sent Me A Very Nice Thank You Card, And A Book All About Her Country, Iceland. That Was Very Thoughtful Of You Erla, Thank You So Very Much.. I Will Never Forget You & Please Stay In Touch.. :)
