Ebay users plz be aware of scam?

Hi i just want to make people aware of this scam, someone posted a ps3 250gb deal here, which was for £139.50 after clicking on the link (which was on ebay) the item was not an actual ps3 console it was a picture which people don't realise, hence the seller sold 15 so be aware.
BTw the seller even stated in his description whether buying from a smaller seller or power seller look for 100% positive feedback so i dont know what these people were thinking when they made a purchase because he doesn't have any feedback (now its -1), ive seen many type of these scams, once with the iphone so just giving a heads up to people :D

btw the item no. for the ps3 on ebay is : 250667680341

'Hi and welcome to my listing of a picture of a brand new 250gb slimline Sony Playstation 3'

Feedback -1 - you've got to be pretty dumb to buy from this joker!

15 idiot's, so much for ; Education....education.
#4
Lets all send him questons regarding his item, such as does it come boxed, is it new etc see what he replies to us all and post here
#5
ebay will give anyone their money back for this. Besides when you receive the item just say you received a picture of an xbox and want your money back.

Simple solution really
#6
couple of people bought 3.........not 15 people bought them.....speaking of idiots!!!! education eduction........


he will be shut down before he gets his money and if i remember rightly judge judy had 1 of these idiots on her show and was punished for misleading people dispte saying the lising was only for picture
#7
haha only a tool would buy this.

It reminds me of back in the day when people were selling original playstations around launch time of the ps3 but putting commas in wrong places

playstation, 3 + 5 games + 2 controllers! £350

Simple solution really

maybe, maybe not as seller has correctly advertised a picture is the item for sale.

point of argument could be that it was listed under PS3s

seen this loads of times

e.g. XBOX 360 BOX

ok if you believe charging people £140 for a picture of a ps3 is not attempting to mislead people then fair enough........

As i said, just to be on the safe side someone who bought this could report it as the wrong item received and claim a refund. Its easy to say that this was a picture of an xbox 360 rather than a ps3.

Ebay will then say send the picture back and you will get money back.

another one sold
#21
i was just going to say allow calling idiots to the people who purchased it because it is unknown to the untrained eye i.e some people who have not come across these scams do not realise, and some of you wouldn't of as well before reading this post but for the guy who made the number to be 16 sold is just stupid, didn't he realise the feedback score and read it.

I was about to agree with you until I looked at the item - the title is

Sony Playstation 3 Slim 250gb Brand New PROMOTION

doesn't mention picture at all.

In my opinion it is fraud.

so you buy an item just based on the title?

its clear cut imo you could easily sell a car or something and put golf gti 06 plate as the title, then give all the info in the main part, i.e if it was faulty needed work doing to it etc would that be fraud seeing as it doesnt say faulty in the title?

no, but then i wouldn't expect to get a photo of a car if the title described a car

Does anyone know if the people who have bought it have paid. They might be new ebayers or people just having a laugh and buying the picture for a joke don't forget seller cant leave them a negative.

If you look at the person who bought it today at 1026 he left the negative at 1056 so anyone can buy it and keep leaving him negatives
#34
What a suprise:

HI, no, sorry its delivery only. Regards

LOL what a plum !

Gotta love the return policy

Return policy : If you're not happy with your picture then feel free to return it.

The feedback said it was a photo, he said to ignore it as its genuine. Genuine what? Photo?

ive been a victim before in a simular case, the seller (on ebay) had 400+ positive feedbacks (most of which were older than 6 months). He was selling Laptops and different game consoles, all about 30-40% cheaper than what you find in shops.
Everything seems fine, the only bit of suspicion was he only accepted bank transfers, i stupidly thought why not, after all he had about 10-15 recent feedbacks all saying "item recieved" and about 100 items were already sold from various listings he had.

here is his profile, obviously no longer active

http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=wrobs2002&ftab=AllFeedback

after a few months of calling TSB bank, ebay and keeping contact with the many other ebayers that also got scammed, i found that there was most likely more than 1 person behind the fraud; as the fraud must have had a friend working at TSB Bank to create for him an account under a false name, also he must have brought an account from someone who had 400+ feedbacks.
