Here Is A SCAM
Website Set Up To Mimic
Someone Spent A Lot Of Time Professionally Setting
This Fake Escrow Site Up!
A Poster On The
eBay Motors Discussion Board Said It Was First Set Up Under
www.securetrade-auctions.com But Was Shut Down! So The Scammers Just
Used The .NET Version And Put It Up Again!
One eBay Member Has Already Admitted Being Taken By
This Scam Site! eBay should be warning their members of fraud like this that
is running rampart on their website.
eBay was founded on trust and community values, I just do not understand the
logic behind denying fraud like this exists. Meanwhile Meg Whitman and
Pierre Omidyar are stuffing their pockets full of cash!
This Really Sucks!!
This SCAM SITE
Is Still Up And Scamming!! WTH Is Going On?? Don't Anybody Care?
SUSPENDED One Member For Posting The Sites Who Is Info On Their
SecureTrade-Auctions.net Thread on EBM
I would have worked hard to get the site shut down, but am upset
with eBay right now, for suspending my account after I posted
the Motorcycle scams & the registration info about that secure
trade auction site. I'm sure you noticed the posts pulled under
this id. This is just my posting id. I'm finally just letting go
of trying to help, like you say, nobody cares. Am sorry to read
that a poster on the thread lost money to the site. I'll be back
next Monday when my suspension is up, but a much quieter user. I
can't post with either of my ids, or risk indefinite suspension.
Can anyone PLEASE, PLEASE help me?????? I have
foolishly fallen for this scam and now I don't know what to do!!!!
I am sick inside because i am such an idiot.
I am in depserate need.
Yes, I did get taken. Very foolish. I purschased
a car on e-bay three years ago and had no trouble and it was quick
and easy. I just thought all sellers had to be registered or some
such thing. I should have investigated further. I see Secure trade
is back up and looks very real. Personally I will not buy another
vehicle over the internet. Too many people are too good at being con
artists. Even though I was foolish, foolish is not a crime but
internet fraud is.
I came real close to loosing $5500.00 to this site.
The sting started with a car listed on Ebay. They told you to
email the seller because his box on Ebay was full.
I emailed ([email protected]) AKA Ron Porter who had moved to
Italy and started a business had could not register the car, a
Toyota Prius, in Italy because of the different standards. The
price for a quick sell was almost half of the NADA value.
He said he uses Secure Trade as a third party to hold the
deposit until the car was delivered and I would contact Secure
Trade to release the deposit. Of course Secure Trade sent me the
information and their agent in Italy to send the deposit to.
(Philip Galiani) Both the seller and Secure Trade tells you that
WU may call you after you have made the transfer and to tell WU
it is of personal nature and not business to avoid a duty on the
money you are sending. After you make the WU transfer they
instruct you to email the WU MTCN number to them so they can
confirm the deposit has been made and the seller can start with
shipping. They also want you to fax them a copy of the WU
receipt (314-272-7472). This is a US phone number and maybe the
phone company could do something about phone fraud.
