    Method of operation: He buys several things at a time. Currently about 3 or 4 from the same buyer. He waits until he receives the box of stuff. Next he reverses paypal charges after receiving items. In case in question he was shipped 4 items. He claimed when he opened the box there was only 1 item inside and gets ebay to give him your money from the 3 items he claims are missing.

    Just looked on Craigs list for a truck. Price was amazing. The truck will be shipped from
    Seattle Washington to me, Seller will pay shipping costs. I have to send money through
    Western Union to an E-bay rep in London. Is this too good to be true. Is this a
    scammer. Please let me know.

    Thank you.

  7. Chief said, on February 19, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    Yes, Alyce, it is a scam. No one ships vehicles for free. Ebay does not have “financial representatives” taking payments via Western Union. Ebay owns Paypal.
