I've bought and sold many, many items on Ebay with 99% good results. One or two items arrived damaged, but this was the fault of the shipper (UPS) and not the seller. One buyer never sent me his payment, but I never shipped him the item, so I lost maybe 25 cents to Ebay for running the ad. The other 150 or so transactions I have done all worked out great.

One of the women I clean for told me friends of hers had a stroller stolen off their front porch. They went to EBay to find another one, and found somebody trying to sell their stroller.
My one an only EBay purchase was a yard of fake fur. I wasn't sure, and they were not clear, if I had bid $13 for a yard of fake fur, 13 per yard for 100 yards of fake fur, or $13 for 100 yards of fake fur.   It turned out I'd paid $13 for 1 yard, hardly a bargain. EBay left me decidedly unimpressed.

Related scams are often reported and followed up on mandolin cafe.Brave posters there incur the wrath of ebay by bidding the item up to a price capable of putting off the niave and then bombarding the seller with emails requesting serial numbers pictures etc. to try to get them to withdraw the auction. On the whole it seems to work although some people have had temporary exclusions from ebay.

"If it's too good to be true.... then it isn't true." What's so hard to understand about that? Ain't nobody givin' nuthin' away and if they're making it sound like they are just click on that little "X" in the upper right-hand corner and save yourself some grief.

Anyone who posts anything for sale on the Web with an unspoken underlying message of "I'm an idiot and don't know what I have here and you can probably get it for a song" is a scammer and you ain't gettin' nuthin'.

Jesus!! Of course, it makes sense that the criminals would use E-bay to run horrible scams on the innocent and stupid. The part that I find unthinkable, and unconscionable, is using a vintage Martin! What base treachery!!

Yes. That's the point. They just lifted the pictures and text off the Elderly add, and set up a add for an instrument they don't have and have no intention of delivering. Note the payement requirement - "wire transfer only." They get that wire transfer and they don't exist anymore.

Interesting thing is that most of these scams come out of Pacific rim countries, and this is within the US - although that may be just a front address for someone actually in another country.

It's a jucking fungle out there.

I don't get it...a fixed price instrument presumed held at Elderly is being auctioned on EBay with no reserve, as though the seller on EBay held it. Did they steal it??

Compare This eBay listing to this item listed by Elderly.

Note that, on the photo of the back on the eBay listing, they cropped it to remove the "Elderly" sign, but they didn't get all of the shadow of the sign.

Takes courage to survive in this world.

Peter.
