Maybe think Georgia, Central Asia and russian mafia subcontracting out home visits to their US cousins.

I put in ambit bids on a couple of cheap Vinten tripods putatively located in Zestafari Georgia after letting them go towards their expiry times.

I was going to ask for some very difficult identity hoops for the vendor to slip through, however Ebay stepped in and suspended his accounts before it got to that, so 10 out of 10 for their vigilence.

There is also a vendor who offers Noct Nikkors and has a gmail.com address who solicits direct email contacts who rarely lasts more than a half-day before he is whacked off the site.

So buyer beware is a topic alive and well and to be wisely heeded.

This stuff is great. "wanting to sell on ebay once I get back"

Quote:
The delivery time will take max 3 business days. As i said in my first email i will explain how iSOLD it works because i want you to be clear on every aspect of this transaction. They are the number one selling service on eBay. You simply drop an item to one of their stores,you find a buyer and they will take care of the rest. When i left on my honeymoon i left 12 items for sale in their custody. Don`t ask at what store, or where the item is exactly because i don`t know...as long as they are handling the shipping and handling i don`t care where they are. I forgot to mention that the shipping is included in the price of sale. They offered me a discount on shipping because i am selling a large number of items and i can afford that.
So basically they have the item insured and ready for shipping. As soon as i will have your shipping details i will send it to them and they will start the transaction. They will email you with an invoice and payment instructions. You will have to send the payment to one of their agents by following the payment instructions. Then you will send the payment details to them, they will validate the transaction and will start the shipping ASAP. If you will have questions you can ask them directly.
Unfortunately the pick up is not possible because this is an urgent sale (like i said before i intended to sell this on eBay when i should have returned from my honeymoon but due to some recent problems back home i am forced to sell it now). iSOLD It suggested to offer a return policy because my offers would substantially increase so i am offering a 10 day guarantee. This eliminates the pick up option but you will have the time to inspect it and decide if you want it or not. If for any reason you decide not to keep it, they will give you a full refund and will return the item on my expense.
So if you agree with this terms and decide to proceed, then i will need your full name and shipping address in order to start the transaction.

I don't understand how these scams can actually work. Shouldn't there be an address or something that the money is sent to? Why can't they trace these addresses?

inquiring minds want to know...

I have received your information and i will forward them to iSOLD It right now and they will contact you with the payment instructions and your invoice so please let me know when have they contacted you so i will know that everything is in order.
It might take a while because of the high number of transactions but don`t worry because they will contact you.

The messages are being send from an IP address originating in Washington DC... they are setup to look like legitimate email's from isoldit but they are absolutely not legitimate.

Basically he is requesting that I send payment via "moneygram". This is like using western union. He'll get his money... if I were dumb enough to send it.

Our customer require the payment to be done through MoneyGram money transfer service.
