Possible Sandcrawler Fraud

Post links to your own or other people's Ebay auctions. It is fine to discuss live auctions, but DO NOT post links to closed auctions for at least 7 days after the listing ends. See sales forum rules for details.

The top link looks like the listing has been pulled so I’d say you were correct

It was basically a carbin copy of the original listing, but in English. Scumbag! Well spotted, sir :D It was on a 24-hour auction, which could of easily duped many people. How secure is the new eBay payment system, I wonder? Paying into someone's bank account might cause problems with getting your money back.

There's a whole load of stuff being listed through that account, probably hacked, watches, guitars, iMacs, high end bikes as well as a children's playground and two fork lift trucks! plus another couple of other Star Wars items.

I've just checked out his feedback :? Lord have mercy, seems as though people have lost thousands! Let's hope they get their money back. Must be a very stressful situation for those involved. So this new eBay bank transfer thing; I'd imagine the funds are held in a eBay bank account first before being forwarded on to the seller? I can't see eBay missing out on rewarding themselves financially with interest using our money. So, refunding people should be pretty straight forward :roll:

Lets hope so. What I can't understand is why people would bid that sort of money when someone has such bad feedback.
