It’s always good advice to beware of the so-called “too good to be true” offers no matter where you encounter them, especially on eBay. I’ve alerted eBay about these messages but to no avail. They said that they would look into them but since I still receive them it’s unlikely eBay did much about it.
As you’ll see in these four messages from what looks like legitimate accounts an obvious trend. I’ll add that these messages are for the same item I have listed on eBay and the messages cover about a two month period. The item lists for around $1,800.
I believe that the scammer(s) hijack legitimate accounts that haven’t been active in a while so as to appear to be legit offers. I’ve never responded to any of these and I’ll never do so. Please, never engage a scammer as they are capable of almost anything and may be able to glean something of importance from any conversation that you may exchange with them.
I once had an offer to mail a full-size piano to Nigeria!
