RX-3 Scam on ebay
« on: October 01, 2019, 03:30:32 PM »
Hi folks, I still stalk here but living in the US now rarely post. I couldn't share a post I made to the FB group thus posting here, I'm sure many of you have seen this and I've discussed it with rotary friends in the UK. This is a scam, I did a bunch of investigation the short of it is among many other easy to spot red flags the BoL provided to a fan in the UK is fake.


Rotary friends this listing on Ebay.co.uk is a scam:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mazda-RX-3-4-Speed/383173420043

The car sold on BaT in the US 6 months ago for 30k USD, there is no way it's selling in the UK for 12.5K GBP! There are many many other red flags including the BoL the seller sent a friend, I contacted the shipping company who confirmed a) they don't ship out of NA b) the BoL is falsified.

I've asked Ebay twice to remove the listing but nothing... #ebay #ebay.co.uk
