- Persistent eBay scammer – V10 carbon
I like these threads as useful what to look out for now on this one I guess lack of a start price is a bit odd but 6year old or so ebay account with 800 transactions – ok so look at the detail selling several bikes none with a start price – all photos in different locations but never buys bike parts
so if hadn’t posted several bikes and been a bit more plausible on reason for sale how do you spot it?

Looks like they have hacked another account. The V10 now has 30 bids and is at £1000!Posted 4 years ago
Same style listing for another mtb currently at £210 has been reported.
The thing with hacked accounts is all the feedback and history is legit. However, you need to read the listing and look at the delivery cost before you get scammed.
This is the bit that should set the alarm bells ringing:
“PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT SIZE ARE YOU INTERESTED TO BUY AND YOUR LOCATION SO WE CHECK IF WE CAN DELIVERY THE ITEM TO YOUR LOCATION .FOR A FASTER ANSWER PLEASE CLICK HERE . WE GOING ANSWER ANSWER YOU BACK IN 10 MINUTES JUST SEND YOUR QUESTIONS HERE”

I would imagine the scam is that they ask you to send the money via Western Union after claiming there is some kind of “problem” with their PayPal account.
The contact links in the listing are there to get you outside of eBay before you “win” the auction.
There are no bikes, just pictures from the internet and hacked eBay accounts.
Maybe someone should ask the seller how they intend to ship the bike, at a cost of £3 from:
