200e module scam on ebay

Author 200e module scam on ebay

Someone has been trying to pull this scam for months now... just figured it was worthy of posting a warning. Someone on this forum owns the items pictured, and whoever is doing this has been using that same picture for tons of auctions.

Yea, same one. The guy didn't even bother to modify the title or lack of description. He's like the synthcase.com of ebay scammers.

next time it shows up, click on "other items from this seller", and you'll see dozens of just added auctions with the same "contact me" jpeg. My thinking is that someone (or maybe even several people) have a program/script that bombs ebay with a ton of these scam auctions every time they manage to get another hacked account.

They probably don't even know what a buchla is. At some point they just scraped a ton of auctions that had a buy-it-now over a certain value, and now just relist the exact auction text, just inserting the "contact me" jpeg.

Why hasn't ebay shut them down ? Whoever is behind it isn't stupid. The throwaway contact details, and even the server hosting the jpeg changes every time. (and they use a jpeg so that ebay can't add pattern matches searching for the suspicious text).

This has been going on for at least 3 years now. One of the aucs they'd always re-use was a 2600. Then a JP-8. Now Buchla. Someone else's account get's hijacked/phished and all the same old scam auctions start up again... You'd think ebay could auto-kill them at this point since they're so easy to detect...
