You'd think someone supposedly from England could speak, you know, *English*.

I bid on a Yamaha GP1300R waverunner last week on e-bay, It ended up not meeting reserve, I received 3 second chance offer for my last bid, fell for the first one and told the guy I wanted to drive out to Western NY to see it,,, turns out he is " out of country " right now but will arrange free shipping included...
Same experience as you this week Chris. I was bidding on snowmobiles this week and got several 2nd chance offers the next day. Actually 5 total scams within 3 days. I turned them into the ebay spoof system but i am sure they do not pursue it very far. I would like to hang these axxxxxxx by their privates. I actually contacted the original seller and he said he has had 3 people call him in the last year or so asking where their purchased item was because they sent money only to find out his ligitimate buyer from ebay already picked up the item he sold and the individual calling him had been scammed(one for over 5k). This is sad that this is what the world is coming to. hammer
