Hey everyone, I was wondering how do you actually go about reporting these frauds? I clicked the report this auction and all it does is take me to a question and answer page. Do you have to email ebay about it? We should get as many people as we can reporting these people! It is the same name from the last time they just changed it. This sort of thing just angers me to no end.

Did anyone notice that the seller answered questions in the auction that it's a fraud and he didn't list the sign? The seller must have been fooled by a "phishing" email and gave up his password. That's the only way an account can be hijacked. However, apparently he can't seem to contact eBay to kill the auction and safeguard his account. I must say that eBay makes it a very difficult process. In addition, we've all seen that sometimes eBay doesn't even act on reports of fraud.

THANK YOU FOR REPORTING ME, NOW MAYBE SOMETHING WILL BE DONE BY EBAY...I CONTACTED THEM AND TOLD THEM THIS WAS A SCAM, AND I DID NOT LIST THIS ITEM.

GOOD DAY! (Even w/the bad PLAYERS such as this Westland BADIT)
Here's a thought not for sure if it's a known fact or just happened around the same time....HECK, it is fact cause it's only happen twice to me in 7 yrs. Both times it happened I had commented on a picture bandit stealing someones pics of signs.
My password had been hi-jacked & I had to change it. It happened w/this sign after I wrote "IT" a nasty letter. This might be a thought for others "If you write an email to these types of BANDITS CHANGE your password????
Just my thought not a proven fact

I'm paranoid by nature.....just changed my eBay password....good advice Indigasman!

Thanks for the info. I do wonder if this guy is a victim....either way....I don't want to be one...this is the kind of stuff that makes me hate eBay.

There's a couple more questionable Chevrolet signs on ebay now. There is a neon OK sign, the seller has been a member since 2005, but has zero feedback. Also, a 36" (?, I thought they were 42") Chevrolet Super Service sign from a guy with very low feedback. This one could be legit I guess but I am very leery.

Since the guy that got his ID hijacked is aware of the scam, why can't he just end the auction?

Re: "Since the guy that got his ID hijacked is aware of the scam, why can't he just end the auction?"

Most likely the person who hijacked the seller's eBay account through a "phishing" email subsequently CHANGED his password!! Therefore, he may be unable to kill the auction but can still answer emails. In my opinion, this whole deal doesn't quite add up. If it was my account, I'd CALL eBay on the phone to get it all straightened out ASAP.

I was the high bidder on the last time he had this this sign up for sale last week. I bid 100000.00 grand just so he wouldn't screw some someone else. i used a e-bay accont that my wife has and never uses, he wouldn't let me pick up the sign. he said had to ship it, and wanted a wire transfer of funds

This person could be a victim this round. I was selling gas-n -oil a few yrs. back & one day my site was hi-jacked. Had a $$Camera on it that I wasn't selling & didn't put there. Talked w/ebay & they could see I didn't sell that type of stuff & pulled it. Opps, that was the first time hi-jacked 3 times all together.

Ebays ALL about staying alert!
Knowing before you buy (to the best of a good gas-n-oil site like this one).Asking questions- letting others know your thoughts even if we might be wrong.
HERE"S another thing I've learned that I only know cause it's happened time in time out w/our fellow gas/oil guys: Buy a large item $$$-----go pick it up as soon as you can or ask for help here. These nuts are getting emails after sales & they're resaling these items.
****oh, bidding on private bid sells is the worst!!! If they can't at least show the winner at the end ....why should you trust that they're not a "BANDIT too.
After all this I still like using ebay even though these bandits have slowed my bidding down these days. Due to having to watch the items closer.

good job Mobil 100........

Pablo, i thought if somebody hijacked your account & changed your password, you can still answer the secret question for "forgotton password" & reset it, as you still do retain your email address.......something is odd here; is this the same seller as last time ??
