Has anyone bought from this seller on eBay?
« on: June 23, 2018, 02:20:12 PM »

This bloke lists his items in different locations, but I've seen none listed where his premises are.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/B-C-Briggs-Button-Accordion-with-spare-A-Bb-reed-blocks/382499570004?hash=item590ec04154:i:382499570004

I'm 99% sure that this is the Briggs that went for £16000+ a few months ago, and he has some really nice looking squeezeboxes for sale, or has he? Excellent feedback, but a very strange way of selling.

It shrieks SCAM to me.

PS

As a minimum it can be used to harvest identity details, it appears that the sale takes place outside of Ebay so no protection, the style resembles a lot of other scams and the link address is spoofed.
The correct address appears to be https://www.ebay.com/deals and the given address has nowt to with ebay. See: https://www.whois.com/whois/item-daily-deals.us

So buy a bargepole and don't touch him with it!

It’s clearly a fraudulent listing from a hijacked account. You should report it to eBay

It's the latest incarnation of the same scam I warned about in March, and a few times since: WARNING - new breed of eBay scammer

Only these days they're offering a fake "eBay Daily Deals" service that they want you to sign into - so they can steal your account and use that too! >:(

They seem to be listing mostly on Fridays and Saturdays, with thousands of the same items, and I've seen that Briggs come up at least half a dozen times in the last 24 hours - and reported it. ::)

And now it’s gone.  eBay are getting quicker at removing these frauds, but we should all report than as soon as we see them.  I usually check “sellers other items” and typically there are dozens of other fraudulent listings, so I usually report a few of them, hoping that eBay will take more notice of multiple reports.
