When you see this photo


Posted by various ebay "sellers" with zero feedback, it's a scam. Some will say email them at X address if you want to buy it now for $1000.

There are 2 such listings, exact same photos, on ebay right now. They are fraudulant scams, and as often as people report them and have them removed, they pop right back up.



Anyhoo, just a head's up for any new PR persons!

Thank you for the head's up :)

Not looking at buying but I got ebay scammed once and while PayPal/ebay did secure me a refund it felt bad all the same.

Nice to give the warning :)

ps Mine wasn't an email the seller, just an ordinary Buy-It-Now. Never deal off of ebay, you lose all protection!!! Never!

Only the Bernina ? Usually these guys have lots of TOLs to choose from.

The sad thing is that some people are gullible enough to believe someone would sell a Bernina 830 for $1000. It's like the Nigerian scams where some long lost heir to the family diamonds is trying to claim back their birthright from a corrupt regime and have chosen lucky you to assist them with their efforts. All they need is details to your bank account and voila! You're fleeced. Let's hope no-one is silly enough to go wow, it's only $1000. Shiny.

I saw a couple recently that were stock photos, and one that had 2 pics of the screens with the Bernina website up. Not screenshots, but pics of a monitor displaying the website. Not bargain prices either. Who would buy such an expensive item from a seller who can't even bother to photograph it?

I ran across this a few years ago with a different machine..they had about 6 pictures of machine. It started on Kijiji and ended up on Ebay. All they wanted was a money order sent. I asked for specific pictures/info they couldn't provide. The pics they had were stolen from a legit seller. So yes, buyer beware and thanks for the heads up.

I also recently saw an ebay posting with pics of both a 1030 and a 1020. The posting was to sell a 1030. So instead of pics of the ACTUAL machine, they just threw up pics they found on the web.
