    Hi All,

    We are more or less all aware of the ole 'I work away' - 'Im going through a divorce' - 'Im on a Oil Rig'... Please pay the shipping company and the car/bus etc will be shipped to you.....

    Well I bid on a pair of splitty's on eBay.. I didnt win, I was the first bidder and the cars sold for $7k. I just received an email from the seller offering them to me at my bid price.. All seemed genuine... I enquired...

    Then I got the whole "Im in the UK friend, we must use shippings companys friend" Blah Blah Blah...

    So what I want to know is:

    Is the seller a member on here? as his account has been hacked on eBay..
    Did someone here buy them? (just out of interest...)

    Here is the link to the sale on eBay

    Thanks

    John

    I have reported a similar listing of these items once before, and just did it again, don't hold out much hope of them doing anything though.

    If it seems too good to be true it probably is.....
