Ebay # 131119665684
Seller...2014nygiants0

This is the same guy who had a fake Sinclair sign listed.
I've mentioned this air meter scam before, but wanted to bring it up again, just in case some of you were bidding on it.
I don't have any solid proof, as to what he's doing, but I was contacted by this seller before, stating that the winning bidder on a white Eco air meter didn't pay, and that he would accept my max. bid of $375.00.
He had the same air meter re-listed, when he told me this.

This guy has other seller names too and he changes cities just as often. Uses others to jack up the prices ( or maybe it's himself doing it). Relisted 2 meters a couple weeks ago 3 times! saying high bidder didn't pay. This was 5 minutes after listings ended. I reported him.....didn't do any good...yet.

Here he goes again. Think he could be a little more creative with his user name.

Next time I plan to go up that way I should message him through ebay and say I'd like to buy it in person just to see what the reply is

I have dealt with this guy thru CL. He had a gas pump listed in multiple cities along the east coast. When I asked him for a price on the pump, he gave me his number to call. I just wanted the price, so I had to go thru 3 emails to get his price. The next day he emails me again and tells me a price that was $200 higher than the day before. I reminded him of his previous price. He proceeded to cuss me out and told me to leave him alone.

A few days later I saw the same pump, along with others, on eBay with the seller being 2014nygiants0. I watched the auctions and was sure that shilling was taking place. The pumps "sold" for much more than they were worth and then reappeared shortly thereafter.

Jeffs, did you get a name? Since I live so close I have dealt with a few people from that area and was wondering if this guy was one of them.

No, I never got his name. Looking back at the emails we exchanged, his phone number is 973-908-2206.

That's a familiar number from this site that someone posted in a topic recently about some deception on Jan 22,2014..."I sent a 2 day postal money order,claims he is buying this stuff for a museum with all gas/oil stuff in N.J..His phone# is 973-908-2206 lives in the bayville."

973 is a North Jersey exchange, Bayville is in the Southern portion of the state. Most likely someone there would have a 609 exchange

It is probably a cell phone number though. Bought in North Jersey, used now in South Jersey.
People now seem to carry their number no matter where they live these days.
