NEVER Accept PayPal For A Vehicle, Or Any Large Sale! eBay And PayPal Side With The Buyers Most Of The Time, And Stick It To The Seller! In The Event Of A Chargeback As Stated Above, PayPal Will Not Defend The Seller! They Just Take The Money Back From Whatever Funding Source/Sources You Have On File!
If You Have Taken PayPal For A Large Sum, And The Buyer Threatens To Do A Chargeback, Or You Are Feeling Nervous About The Possibility Of Loosing Your Money.. It Is Best To IMMEDIATELY Close Any Funding Sources You Have On File With PayPal, Including Bank Accounts & Credit Cards That Have Been Removed From PayPal In The Past!, They Are Actually Not Removed, And PayPal Will Attempt To Draw Funds From Them!
Call Your Bank and Tell Them You Lost Your Checkbook, And Do The Same With Credit/Debit Card Companies! They Will Issue You A New Account/Card! And It Will Be PayPal That Gets Hosed, Not You!!!
But Also Be Advised PayPal Will Turn It Over To Collections To Try And Recover Their Loss!
Doing A Charge Back With A Credit Card/PayPal Is Not Illegal! You Might Think It Is Theft Of Property Like A Worthless Check/Draft, But It Makes It A Civil Matter! You Will Have To File Suit Against The Buyer Who Initiated The Chargeback! If Your Vehicle Is Several States Away, It Might Be Cost Prohibitive!
Con Artists Prey On Vehicle Sellers Just Looking For A Victim! Just Don't Let It Be YOU!!!

We did go see the vehicle before
bidding, thank goodness. The seller's description said
that the car had been well taken care of and that the
interior was in very good condition. The photos looked
great. When contacted by phone the seller said the car
was in great condition. The seller has good feedback.
The car had a broken windshield, a crack in the dash, cigarette burns on the carpet (under a new floormat), a cigarette burn on the backseat, and some significant scraps touched up with not-quite-matching touch up paint. None of this was in a photo.
You're all right -- see the car. Thanks

I only decided to say something because through a little research and an ever vigilant eye for a deal, I have become aware of the appalling number of phony auctions. Ebay says they care and then do nothing. The occasional auction is removed. They may say they can't catch them all, then how come I can spot a dozen of them at any time? Things that make you go HUMMMMMMM.

Thanks for the help with this...i have never heard of
such a program with ebay. see below.

clicked on one of the bogus listings the other day and
as soon as the fake login page popped up, it tried to
down load what appeared to be a trojan virus!
My anti-virus caught it, and it was either harmless or
was set up incorrectly, as it didn't do any harm. I
think the scammers are testing eBay to see how much they
can get away with... What happens when it gets to the
point where you can't even click on any auction without
having to worry about virus down loads, fake re-directs,
etc? It is starting to get out of control.

lurk on several other discussion boards on eBay and have
made the following observation, for what it's worth.
Pinks will drop in on most other boards about every 10 posts or so.
Remember we would get a topic every now and then looking for a pink? And every blue moon a pink would stop by and jump into a motors discussion.
Other than to pitch their fee increases or some other "enhancement" when was the last time a pink stopped by and made his presence known? I just searched, and you have to go back 4 pages of topics to find one where a pink made a comment.
I think they know what a cesspool (to use Doc's expression) the motors section has turned into (I mean the sales, feedback, frauds and scams, not the discussion board) and they just avoid it like the plague.
But, it would be refreshing to hear a topic about a buyer had the car pre-inspected and had a concern or problem with that process. The scams are getting more well known, the pre-inspection even less so.

You are right on the money!!
NOBODY in their right mind should buy a car on eBay motors, it is so rife with fraud.
All eBay is interested in is the is the fees it collects.
They could care less about the authenticity of the listing. They don't have, nor care about whether it is real or not.
How else can you explain the fraud on this site???.
The pinks address the "fluffy" issues, kind of like a Larry King interview".
Long live the Libs.!!!

H Luis was busy the last couple of
nights...and boy, does he have a deal on a car for you...I
mean...he has 27 DEALS!!!
resistance is futile...YOU WILL BE A-SCAM-ILATED!!!
Oh, and that last one is a 2006 Corvette Z06 THAT'S A 4X4?!! WHAT COMPANY DOES *THAT* CONVERSION??? H LUIS ENTERPRISES, THAT'S WHO!!!
So Pinks, while you're wasting your time sending me a nasty scathing email and deleting my post from 530am this morning talking about these scams because I mentioned them by seller name instead of item number, they have put up MORE scams and you're FALLING BEHIND!!!

|Just called up page 1 of passenger vehicles, and 30 listings are obvious scams. If the scam prevention team exists, they're not very good. Restating an opinion, once enough people get scammed, and everyone reads about it and stops buying, honest sellers like yourself will stop listing, and the eBay house of cards will come crumbling down.|

Hey Ebay , Ever hear of the Titanic.
They said that ship could not sink either and it did .
It is no wonder it is hard to sell a car on Ebay what with all the scams !!!
|europa3962 (44 )|
Why does Ebay make it so defficult to
report obvious scams. I spent more time trying to browse
the security areas looking for information
I found a bogus posting and took me 1/2 to tell someone and when I did they suggested in the future I send an email. I contacted the guy on the bogus listing thinking he had misstyped the price for the car. He has 78 feedbacks listed. This is similar to the Nigerian scam

I am new to ebay. My husband listed a Jeep and we were scammed by the high bidder, the same person had doen it to another Jeep seller, and now I have found out about two others with a similar story. A brand new ebayer bids the Jeep sky high, and cannot be contacted, does not respond to emails, and DUH!, does not pay. We complained extensively to ebay, and nothing was done about it, we just ate the cost of the listing. We have re-listed the Jeep with a warning to bidders, and if someone is new, or has negative feedback, we ask them to contact us PRIOR to bidding. If they do not comply, we kick them off. This really sucks. I think that there should be some kind of repercussion for the deadbeats, ebay does nothing about this (currently), hopefully this will change. Anybody have something to say about that?
