Last e-mail from e-Bay

Our records show that you were a bidder on this item. We recently removed this listing and have suspended the seller's trading privileges. Due to privacy concerns we will not be able to share further details related to this seller.
If someone claiming to be the seller asks you to complete a transaction outside of eBay, we strongly recommend that you ignore the request. Transactions for items listed on eBay that are completed outside of the eBay marketplace are not covered by the Buyer Protection services offered by eBay and can be highly indicative of fraud.
If you have not sent payment to the seller, we urge you to not proceed with the transaction.

After numerous complaints ..  Finally e-bay took action on this seller.. But I’m sure he will show up again some where .. maybe selling a Turbo for a Toyota?

Hope we can put this SCAM to rest ..

Yes that is an old AND ON GOING SCAM
They are aware of this one and promised to not run the ad anymore ???
I have been burnt by E-Bay myself, they really need to get their act together,
the seller bids against you, you win an auction get e-mail saying that, and then a minute later you check and someone else is listed as the winner (ya the frucking seller because he didn't get his price) There are A LOT of problems on E-Bay that need immediate fixing


Rule #1, never ever ever buy or send money outside the US
NO ONE CAN HELP YOU, and 99.9% of the time, IT IS A SCAM
