Yeah i just had a look. The 1 feedback for selling seems legit though. But 25? Seems abit strange!

It never worked.You think paypal are going to let him transfer that amount of money without questions.

the scam is to get the money in his account then spend it before paypal can do anything about it, its been going on for as long as i can remember

He has to transfer the money from his paypal account to his his bank account & I & I'm sure others have reported the listing & so no way in a million years paypal are just going to hand a seller with 16 feedbacks £7,500.

Unless he sends the £ to another Paypal account maybe? Or uses it to make a bogus "purchase" on a bogus website? You hear of loads of scammers getting away with scams via ebay/paypal ... there must be a way for them to move the money about.

Listing has been removed so username would be better.

When someone suspects fraud as I reported & I'm very sure others even the people who buy will report it just in case & so ebay/paypal will be freezing his account until he can provide proof he has these phones.

Username; airsupply69 no longer registered.

I reported it (I work as a fraud investigator for one of the mobile networks). It was obviously going to end badly. The guy had a feedback of 10 and had sold nothing for over 6 months. And the listing went up at 2:45 am.
If 'felt' completely wrong so I've watched it all week. He'd sold 66 of the 67 by the time I saw it and reported but, of course, nothing happened until it was far too late.

well seen as all his stocks are gone i would say the scam worked, if it didnt work no one would have purchased it? and paypal isnt a bank to go through these security checks they just simply handle funds and even if they do there are ways around this, just transfer in small amounts it works with banks also

They freeze your account as myself & others have had done.

If he's not sold anything before paypal hold the money now for 21day's or till feedback is left from buyer..

thats correct, i sold an iphone on there a while ago, they wont let you do anything with the money until you get positive feedback from the buyer, so this scam will not work

Which is why a lot of scammers are hijacking valid ebay accounts and using them.

There are still people who respond to those emails telling them to update their settings...
