Ebay Scam Alert

Recommended Posts

I was surprised to see this listing on ebay yesterday for a "1939 Plymouth Woody" for at least two reasons:

a.   It's obviously a 1940 and

b.    It belongs to me (and is NOT for sale)


I contacted ebay and a knowledgeable friend. Scammers will download photos from the web (these were taken by the company that sold me the car) and create a fake profile.  In this case, the VIN was off by only one digit.    They run an "auction," get the "winner" to send a deposit and then disappear.   https://www.ebay.com/itm/1939-Plymouth-Woody/123867523518?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&fbclid=IwAR2um_78btVrd1GsiiOy14QrjD2lRQmG_1A662Hrd7LvDVi6fztwHqcZ--s

Kevin,

 

This also happened to me about 4 years ago.

 

They listed a woodie I had listed about 7 years ago.

 

The same exact ad just a different contact and the price was $ 2,500.00 for a restored wagon.  She claimed that her husband had pasted and that she just did not want to see the car anymore??

 

Mike
