I sold a car on eBay recently, the winning bidder came and picked up the car on Sunday, payed cash and all was good.
Had this e-mail from him today.
" hi matt some woman keeps emailing me for your details, she says she recieved a second chance offer from you of £550 & she states she paid you via paypal, i havent given any of your details & i told her to contact ebay as its nothing to do with me, thanks again jason"
It's all news to me, and I definitely haven't made a 2nd chance offer.
A woman did bid £550 on the car, so it sounds like someone has accessed the bids on my car, and contacted the other bidders with a fake 2nd chance offer.
I've asked the buyer of my car for her details, and I will get in touch with her to see what has happened.
Is this a known scam ?
Cheers for any advice
