Recently there was a very rare Singer Featherweight for auction on ebay; the photos had been stolen from one of our own member's legit auction. The "seller" had 0 feedback, had the price listed in GBP, but location as, IIRC, Ozark, AL.

Currently there is a listing for a Bernina 830E on ebay; same use of GBP, same seller location, same 0 feedback.

This may be someone different and totally legit...but it may not. If I'm maligning the seller, my apologies.

Just received confirmation; this is the same seller who stole the Featherweight photos and had their auction pulled by ebay.

Yeah, this listing reeked of scam. Thanks for warning everyone.

Wonder why they do that GBP thing?

Did you report it through eBay? They've removed anything I've reported as a scam pretty quick.

I did, but they don't give much in the way of options, and I wasn't able to reference this listing to the fraudulant FW listing.

Lynne,

Thanks for the warning. I am looking for a FW. Can you reference the member site so I can check in a place that isn't trying to rip people off.

Thank you,

It is very difficult to get scammed by anyone on ebay if you use paypal. Both ebay and paypal pretty much guarantee a buyer their money back, sometimes even if there is no problem. Lots of buyers are getting things for free on ebay that way, and leaving a legitimate seller out the money and the item. Scams go both ways but ebay will always protect the buyer.

So, if someone did send them the money for this machine and they do not get it, you can bet they will not be out the money, unless they did something stupid like send a check or cash.

It's really too bad though that there are people doing this on ebay and making it really hard for the honest sellers.

Oh yes, this seller did steal the pictures from someone else, Here That should make it easier to report, but probably too late now that the listing has ended, IDK.

It's a very nice money laundering scheme if I put on my suspicious hat.
