eBay Car Scam

March 4th, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

Internet muscle-car scam led to robbery of would-be buyers

There’s a lot of ways to make money online. Sell your stuff, host ads on your site, create a new tech company and sell it down the road, the list goes on and on. A lot of people take advantage of the trust relationships that internet commerce depends on (such as eBay). Like this guy, who posted muscle cars for sale on eBay then robbed the winners when they showed up to purchase the non-existant cars.

Of course, in this instance, the guy probably would’ve had a better chance if he hadn’t given his victims his real address in the auction.
