I know that this stuff is mainly meant for the forum, but I wanted to make sure that as many people read it as possible! My friend was bidding on a chopper on Ebay. He won the bid (for 20 grand). VERY shortly after bidding was up, he received an email w/ payment and shipping options, etc... He decieded to pay by money transfer, so he was given an account #, etc... and he made the payment for the bike. Turns out he got screwed /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif The auction was totally legit. The person who contacted him w/ the account info, etc... was not the person selling the bike. They copied the escrow account page EXACTLY, except that they put a - in the name between 2 words. He transfered the $$, they withdrew it, closed the account and ran. He is out 20K, has no bike, Ebay and the FBI are both involved but told him don't hold your breath for getting your cash back because these guys that did this are GOOD! F*CKERS! At least the guy that was selling the bike was understanding and isn't still trying to stick him w/ it after he was screwed. He may have not done things the smart way w/ the transaction, etc... but I just wanted to let people know that there is somebody out there that is raping people in their leather cheerio on Ebay, because according to Ebay and the FBI this has been happening ALOT.
