Hi Folks;

I`ve been watching ebay closely; Among other sites & I came across "Two" TR6s that are "Real Sweet":

One is "Red" & the other "Yellow": The Sellers Feedback of ea. car is; (-1)!!

I`ve never seen anyone with a "Minus" Feedback before!!

Would it be possible that this is the same person selling both TRs?? I`ve emailed both Sellers & No Response so far??

Check it out; They`re Really Nice Cars!!

Hi There Ladies & Gents;

By the Way; How many folks that are on this Forum are "Ladies"??

Just heard back from the Guy with the "Yellow" TR6: He says he has no affiliation with the Guy selling the "Red" TR6:

He also says that he got stiffed by a buyer from "France" on a TR3; Would not send him $$$??? Thats the reason for the (-1) Feedback:

He also goes on to say; That he`s a "Very Reputable" Seller as he has sold "5" (Count them, Five) cars on ebay with no problems:

So; I asked him; Then why is your Feedback (-1)???

Incredible!! Russ /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/devilgrin.gif

Seems the scams are starting to out number the real cars these days. Some of the scams are pretty bold. I even found my own car being auctioned on ebay the other day. I mailed the guy and told him it was a sweet deal for me, because I wouldn't have to pay shipping. Didn't get a reply to that /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Wow, I don't feel so bad having my car listed, at least they didn't steal my ebay userid. What a mess! Glad you got it worked out though.

My car that they 'stole' was a Ferrari 308. The pictures were still on the web from a previous owner, and they found them and just cut and pasted the pictures and some text from the web page on the ebay listing.

This was about a month ago, so the listing is no longer there. I alerted ebay, and to their credit the listing was gone within 12 hours.
