Has anybody used this for a purchase on ebay........Can anyone tell me wether this is safe as houses or should i stear clear..............a quick snippet from a email..........
These are the steps :
I am to forward the item number and seller/buyer details (full name, address) to ebay.
The escrow agency issues an invoice for this transaction. Then you make a bank transfer to an
eBay escrow account with the amount. After that we meet in London and you make all the inspections
and checks on the car. Then, the eBay agent will expect confirmation from you. If you give
the green light, the money will be transfered into my account and the transaction will be finalised.
If you are unhappy with the car, the agent will reimburse the full amount into your account.
If you are happy with the car, you still have one week in which your can change your mind and have your money back
Does this sound right.................

Thanks

I wouldnt touch it. Pay for a bankers draft or do an imediate transfer via the bank (chaps, about £25) this is safe as houses. Trust me, I was the manager of a building society. Stay with what you know

Escrow is purely for scamming. Avoid it at all costs

No doubt!

No obvious giveaways on this one for a change...... except the fact its dirt cheap:p

Don't do it, If you really must give your money away give it to me:thumbsup:

Ill give you a car that's worth about half that. But at least you'll have a car to show for it:whistling:
