    cell phone scam on ebay

    Hi everyone,

    I was browsing through the pages and reading all about those scams from Romania. I also had an offer to buy some nice cell phones pretty cheaply. I had some email contact with the vendor. What made me suspicious is that he is registered in Itlaly but instructed me to forward the money via Western Union to Romania. I posted the email addres and name he gave me. Please let me know what you think.
    The name used this tme:
    [/B]First name: Doina Camelia
    last name: Baranescu
    address: Aleea Viitorului
    city: Dragasani
    country: Romania
    zipp/code: 245700
    email address:[email protected][/B]

    Thanks for replying and take care.

    I suspect that the above was partly aimed at me...

    I would ask you to kindly step down from what appears to be an attempt to patronise. As far as I am aware, we are all here to trade information and advice about these ongoing scams and educate individuals caught out by these scams and also each other, not to score points.

    Thanks.

    he said that a nokia n70 can be cost 180euro. I stupidly accept. I send money with western union. he ask me more amd more money for a strange mistake. he send to me 12 phones instead of 1.
    just to conclude, he stole me money and I've never see the items.
    I behave like a stupid of course, but I would like that other people will not fall as I did

    eBay Fraud attempt in progress

    Hello, I know this is an older thread, but it will be one that probably will never die.

    I listed a ATV for sale on eBay motors with a buy it now price of $1000. Within 8 hours of listing this ATV for sale, somebody used the buy it now for $1000 on 9/15.

    That right there seemed weird to me as there were other 50cc ATV's for sale and they were not going up near $1000.

    The eBay purchaser garrylapse5 (No longer ebay registered) contacted me and he wanted to send me extra money on the cashiers check so I could pay his shipper direct.

    I got the check in the mail yesterday 9/20. It was mailed from England via Air Mail. It was in the amount of $3800. Hmm... this is looking really bad now.

    The check looked funny, so instead of depositing it via ATM, I went into the bank today and told them that I am concerned about this check. Sure enough they confiremd that it was a fake. They confiscated the check right there.

    Now, this low life scum bag is still contacting me via email. They are requesting that in a couple days when the check 'clears' that I can Western Union the $2800 shipping fee to some account. (Waiting for the details.)

    I want to get this scum bag, so they can't steal money from anybody else.

    Who should I contact and how do I get this process going?
    Thanks,
    Larry

    The use of ebay and paypal include agreement to legally abiding contracts, but only in the countries listed in the clauses I believe.

    I'm suing someone for fraud right now, but they are in the states with me.

    I have a great case, and great organizations on my side.
    There are reps from ebay and paypal involved, I'm sure if you contacted Ebay they will help you.

    I was recently on AutoTrader.ca and noticed this 2002 BMW M3 for $6800. That being an amazing deal, I got in contact with the person and sure enough she said she moved to London and can't find a buyer so was hoping to find one back in Canada. She also said that it being a left hand drive car was useless to her cause she was in London. I thought that was a little odd so throughout our correspondence I asked her for an address and she said:
    119 Millfield Avenue
    London,England
    E17 5HN,United Kingdom
    Now, I've noticed this was the address to a Daniel Levinson who everyone keeps talking about on here. This person's name though was Janet Morck ([email protected]). She did, however give me the correct VIN for the car in question. But I see now without a doubt that this was probably a scam. Good thing I did this research or I would have been out $6800.

    Defrauded Computer Geek

    I purchased a "New In Box Silver Toshiba Satellite Laptop" from a "tonishuster" on eBay for over $700.00. When I finally got the box, after numerous unanswered emails and filing a claim with Paypal, there was no computer in the box. There was only an old, torn telephone book. I am thinking of filing in small claims court but I live in Colorado and she lives in California. What can I do? I checked all of her positive comments on eBay before bidding but apparently this seller has a history of defrauding buyers with the old telephone book trick.
