Scam Alert 1965 Irish Green SC on ebay

#1 Post by Eric Lenius » Thu Jun 21, 2018 9:31 am

Hey all,

This listing on ebay is a scam. The car is sitting in the parking lot here at work. In Washington State. Last time I checked, I was not selling it. The pics were lifted from the advertisement from August 2016.

I saw it this AM after being made aware of it by a friend and assumed it was a scam. Thanks for confirming.

Did you turn it into Ebay as a fraud, Eric? I had the same thing happen to me (and my car came from your region) but it wasn't advertised on Ebay.

If possible watermark the images of your cars when you post them on the internet. Since doing this I have not had this happen with my images/cars since.
