    Dodgy Listings?

    Any idea what this seller is up to? I've seen a multitude of classic American cars for sale
    from them over the past few months, always starting at 1p (!) and now they're putting
    ridiculous Buy It Now prices citing timewasters as the cause for the repeat listings!
    What IS the point of all this?!!

    You'd think Ebay would cotton on to this, there are 576 positives in the review but they're all for buying stuff, not selling. The few negatives are from buyers all saying "Con Artist"!

      They couldn't even be bothered to change the Buy IT Now prices when multi listing.
      Sellers other items are all either BIN £3600 or £5600.

      I'm not an early model specialist but £5600 seems a bargain for the one above.

      And all the items are listed within 3 minutes of each other, 13.04 to 13.07, that's an automated listing system of some sort especialy as there is no description and the text is identical in all of the listings (well all the ones I checked)

      So the seller suddenly decided they want to clear out all their stock / collection in one go?

      He's one of the Lambrettas advertised in 2016, brick wall looks familiar

        Itís the same on the ford Capri search, eBay seem to be getting faster at taking them down though.

          The point is some stupid idiot will pay a deposit without seeing the car and lose the deposit money.
          Not wanting to sound rude but you would have to be foolish to fall for it. Its not just Mustangs but Defenders are just as bad, you can have pages of fake adverts all posted at almost exactly the same time. Like Geoff says its about time Ebay put stop to it but I guess they can't be bothered.

              These listings are STILL showing up, in spite of me reporting every one of them over and over again!

              He's got several different accounts and all seem to have one photo of a car then the next is a dodgy
              photo of his contact details and the repeat price of £5600 no matter what's he's "selling". If you have a
              spare moment, please report this guy - I hate to think of anyone getting ripped off by someone as brazen
              as this.

                Same as you ,I've reported it on numerous occasions. EBay need to monitor mass listings.

                  Agreed. I look at eBay most days. Mustangs, jaguars, classic cars, convertibles, this "entrepreneur " goes for all of them and I happily report them as soon as I see them. Yes, they take them down quite quickly but I also agree that eBay should use some of their technological intelligence and put a stop to this practice. I fully believe they have the ability if not the will to do so.
                  . Cars, photos, wine. What else is there?

                    It a bit like the emails from Nigeria etc telling folk that they've inherited a fortune and to collect it all they
                    need do is submit their bank details and they'll do the rest! The trouble with this is, no matter how ridiculous
                    it might sound to you and I, there will be some poor soul out there who will think it's genuine and lose a fortune
                    to such scams. I know there's not likely to be too many senior citizens interested in a £5600 Dodge Challenger
                    , but someone out there who is entirely innocent, if somewhat naive, will fall for this kind of thing. It really makes
                    my blood boil!!!
