This is how quick scams on ebay work , open a bank account in a place where the banking law are lax OR use a stolen ID  THEN you post lots of auctions of the hot new fashion (bridnest Anthuriums ), then collect as much cash as fast as possible (think PAYPAL & money orders ) close said bank account before paypal gets wise & seizes the account (that takes weeks for paypal to get anything done ) spend cash . then start over agin with new names ,new banks ,new ebay ID’s & paypal accounts.. there was a Arioder doing this 2 years ago in FL but US banking  is fast on it’s feet these days , offshore accounts that another whole ball of wax



Worse part about this recent scam is some of the bidders are NOT from the Far East They are U.S. Ebayers  which in the long run will hurt the quality  Aroid ebay sellers here .  Complain all you want to Ebay sometimes it works but you STILL  need real  proof. A flood of emails will do the trick but only from the bidders . This is the U S A  innocent till proven guilty .until the auctions end & then people get screwed will the real action from Ebay will start . but as shown above if a seller is fast & ready…… the cash is already gone down the pockets of the scammers

Hi All,

Actually the complaint phone number to Ebay is (866)515-3229..... Ahem!

There is an email address too, but that rarely gets much in the way of results.

It is unfortunate that sellers insist on making quick cash at others expense.

There are a great of great buyers on Ebay that I have come to know as friends over the years and I hate to see them fall prey to a scam.
