It says he took it out twice in the rain. The first time he got stuck at the mall so he got a winch for the second time but couldn't get it to work so he quit on it. Thats why its getting sold

Jerry Bransford I do a lot of stuff on eBay so I sent an email to their fraud people saying it looked like a scam auction. If they reply, I'll post up what they say.

Triple88a Lol i think he just added the 8600 buy now again lol. wtf
05-08-2008 09:42 AM
JeepersdoitDeeper It is a Scam in every sense of the word. If I had the time before work, I would report it to Ebay, but I'm headed out the door. I'll do it at lunch. DO NOT EMAIL him. DO NOT BID. Anytime you run across Hyperlinked text in an auction, especially linked to disposable email addresses, you can rest assured that it is a scam.

Triple88a i donno it seems like he was probably getting bombarted with the buy now so he switched it to make more money.
05-08-2008 01:37 AM
[TheYJGuy] Its up to $14,600 now.

If I had caught this with the BUY IT NOW at $8600, I'd have to turn into instant ninja and sneak into the bank vault and grab a fist full of Benjamins

StealthAWD Seller is presumably located in "Alton Park"..but no state? Looks like there is an Alton Park in PA. According to carfax, the jeep was purchased in Mississippi and sold in Feb 07 to a private buyer in Texas.

StealthAWD Yes, I just noticed that as well. Maybe I should get a cashiers check tomorrow and mail it to him - NOT!
05-07-2008 10:33 PM
Triple88a He seems to have removed the 8.6k buy now price he had up there earlier. Its up to almost 15k now.

StealthAWD Too bad it is a fake ebay that is the exact Rubi that I am looking to buy!

Nope they are not fake, they are just hidden (only first and last initials are visible) to protect bidders privacy. It's normal on ebay.

Triple88a 2much, look at the middle of the page, you will see it says 8600 buy it now price to email him...

Now that i check it it seems like its deleted.
05-07-2008 09:45 PM
2much I'm definately no ebay expert, but is it not possible that he has a reserve set, and its just hidden?
Anyway, its a sharp lookin jeep.

Triple88a Also notice the FREE SHIPPING. lol Who the hell ships a vehicle for free. I went to carmax when looking for a rig and they said to ship me a jeep from Ohio to Chicago (about 450 miles distance) would cost me about 500 bucks. And this rubi has a FREE SHIPPING? lol.

At last

Payment methods accepted

Cashier's Check (certified from US or Canadian bank) or money order

which cannot be returned or tracked once the person receives it

Cash (in person)

i wonder if he would really take cash in person..

Jerry Bransford Scam. Notice the guy uses a free Gmail email address which is nearly untraceable and he has zero feedback.

Scout I'm in at $ 5,100!!!
