Default E-Bay Scam TD30KV Beware / Other Sites ... e-bay are useless

If anyone comes across this listing beware

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Drum-Kit-...19.m1438.l2649

It's also listed here
https://www.subito.it/strumenti-musi...-236275293.htm

Here
https://www.custojusto.pt/porto/inst...onica-25225398

and here
https://www.gumtree.ie/a-musical-ins...70911328012709

E-bay are TOTALLY F**^- useless as they make it so F**^- difficult to report a problem you give up .... they should be shot for that!

This item was also listed 2 / 3 days ago and disappeared out of my watch list so I guess it's been removed once already.

Scum!!!!

Easy to spot a scam ebay listing, there's a block of text that's actually just an image, so that details and emails can't be detected (except by viewing the image.)

The fact it's listed on 5 different sites in all different countries to start off with sets alarm bells ringing.

You send him an e-mail to the address at the bottom of the advert asking for the buy now price which he comes back with and when you say you're an hour away I'll come and see it and finalise the purchase there and then ... silence.

the same listing was also up there about 3 days ago and just disappeared ... as you say it's cheap (to lure you in) and if so why didn't it sell before and got removed from my watch list as well.

Seriously if you don' think that's suspicious I've got a load of stuff you can buy ... and it's all going cheap :-)

If it looks too good to be true guess what .....

I sent him an e-mail suggesting he may be a scammer and this was the endearing reply I received ...

What a lovely person .. his communication skills go above and beyond or is he just playing hard to get with the sale hoping the price may go up :-)

Bless his cotton socks heh.
