What is wrong with this ebay auction? 69 Camaro Yenko Clone
« on: January 24, 2006, 07:34:30 PM »
This appears to be a scam to me.  The guys got a good rating, but it looks like it was artifically built up that way with a bunch of cheap auctions.  The private bidders only seems odd too.  I am probably going to stay away unless I can get the seller to allow me to go see the car before bidding.  Any thoughts from you guys out there?

It is a scam; they probably cloned the i.d. of a legitimate E-Bay seller.  E-Bay will catch it any minute and delist it.

2-3 weeks ago I came across the ZL-1 that Heartbeat city has offered for 1,000,000+ on ebay, put up by someone else in the same price range as this Yenko clone. I recognized it by the same pictures Heartbeat had used, just not near all of them. It was pulled pretty quickly.

The dead give away on these auctions is the rediculously low "buy it now" prices and they always want you to e-mail them privately before you bid. Once you contact them they will ask for a deposit through Western Union or some way similar so you can not track them or get a refund. Stay clear of these clowns. I don't know how they pirate the legit ID's and feedback ratings, but I  had a person contact me who actually owned an ID telling me that a 67 Rally Sport I was after was not even their car. I was lucky and figured it out and reported it to ebay. Ebay will take it down and hopefully before someone gets burned.

One of the replica car dealers in New Jersey recently had a big article on their web site, where someone had pirated their ad on a car.  It was a really clever fraud.  Apparently several people lost large sums of money sending cashier's checks to a P.O. Box.  Needless to say, the "feds" pounced on it.
If it's too good to be true...
