Caller: Scam seller
There is a scam seller on ebay who keeps offering thousand dollar plus items with same photos but a different number in a picture on the ad. I text them and they phone back. A couple of weeks back it was supposed to be a number in Adelaide 0472 503 525 and the ad got pulled. This week it is the third time the item is supposed to be in Sydney and the number is 0477 191 087. How can these people get away with these scams?
The scammer posted vintage hifi items on eBay. The location stated Nedlands WA. He replied to a txt message I had sent him and he claimed that he made a mistake about the location and the actual location was Bunbury WA which is a few hundred km away from Nedlands. Alarm bells went off and I watched the item on eBay....he never changed the location. I reported the ad to eBay and it is no longer posted. Scam ebay seller. $1000 offers 'accepted' for a $2000 item. If it's too good to be true, it probably is EBay scammer. I blame Telstra and Optus. They sell bulk phone numbers to scammers that constantly rip people off and they know they are scammers.

Similar problem. Sent his commonwealth bank details. Only thing you can do is report to your bank requesting a chargeback and raise a report on scam watch and cyber.gov.au/report at least the police will be aware of it then
This same number currently has some vintage stereo items listed on eBay saying they are in Perth.
I knew it looked dodgy straight away.

Avoid! This is a scam.
Talk to your bank. They could help a lot more than anyone on this website. Caller: Ross Salvato
