This fella is up to mischief.

6.2 k for this car... HHmm. Look at all his other new listings for very cheap vehicles. Most with the same price and no other details other than a dodgy email to contact on.

Im afraid someone will be fleeced before he is caught.. Im reporting for suspicious behaviour.

Agree - very suspect. However it might not be the guy who owns the ebay account - likely his account has been hacked and the fraudster is fishing for email contacts to fleece them out of money. This particular Mog has been featured several times before on ebay by criminals attempting a fast buck.

This advert keeps popping up and has done for over a year

Whoever it is hacks other people’s EBay accounts and puts loads of cars listed at cheap prices with the second image being an email address to try to entice some unsuspecting person to part with money

It’s a fraudulent listing and every time it’s popped up (I have a saved search for Morgans) I’ve reported it to EBay and it gets taken down after an hour or day or two

EBay keep removing them but probably rely on people reporting it as I’m guessing EBay is so huge it’s difficult to police without very clever software and vigilant buyers

Happens regularly, always gives minimal info and a contact email. Over 2000 listings all at ridiculously low prices, some already have bids.

All he's looking for is someone to place a holding deposit via bank transfer.

It'll get taken down soon but will pop back up in a day or two under a different user account.

Sad!

Isn't it beholden on ebay to investigate or ban this person ? Doen't do ebays reputation any favours ?

Says he has 100% positive feedback , so who is giving the feedback , himself ?

Stolen identities would explain how these items keep reappearing. I had been wondering whether the seller was creating identities and fake histories.

These Scrotes sometimes sell a load of low value stuff to gain some positive feedback before hitting their ebay account with some big stuff. They rely on the naivety and / or greed of people to pop a holding amount or even the full amount for the item and then disappear. First time ive seen it with the Mogs but when I was into motorhoming that is another vehicle you will often see at to good to be true prices. An old workmate of mines dad paid 9k for a motorhome UPFRONT for a van he was 'going to collect' the following weekend. Of course the van never existed and as soon as cash was transferred the rotter disappeared. You will see the same with other high value items. Watches are another prime target. Lots of positive feedback for low value items then suddenly bam, a Vintage Rolex Sub appears.

If you look closely the core business is selling used coffee sacks with positive feedback. None on any vehicle sales which does suggest account has been hacked.
