Fraudsters Go Underground Disguise eBay Scams

Are Motor Vehicle Phishing Scams Still On eBay Motors

Suspeced eBay Phishing Car Scams 11/28/2014

eBay seems to be moving away from their eBay Motors Brand, and are changing their vehicle listing format to resemble eBay core. When looking at cars on the site, nowhere is the wording “eBay Motors.” Just last week it was discovered their eBay Motors Facebook business page had vanished. It’s my personal opinion that early scams and seller misrepresentation that went uncorrected for over 10 years has cooked eBay’s golden goose but good. They refuse to verify vehicle sellers before a listing goes live. If you didn’t know it, there…

10 Years Watching eBay Car Scams & Auction Fraud

Medved eBay Auction Chart 03/05/2007

Summary of 10 years watching eBay Auction Fraud and Used Car Scams. Buyers and Sellers were conned out of their money by slick talking fraudsters and bad sellers. These observations destroyed buyer and seller trust and well established community values. It is Doc’s belief, had Meg Whitman taken a stand against fraud and misrepresentation back in eBay’s early days, they could have nipped their auction fraud problem in the bud. But obviously corporate insiders were more interested in stuffing their pockets full of cash. Rather than working on long-term-goals that…
