Email Messages from the eBay Hijackers to Bidders


The Nekkid Truth and Team Whack a Hack have decided to start posting messages that we receive from those that help contribute to our blog. These sample email messages are written to bidders that contact the email addresses in the too good to be true listings on eBay.

Feel free to forward the email messages you receive from these thieves to the blog email address and we will post them. We will protect the identity of the bidders, but not the thieves.

Read the lies from the thieves and how they try to convince innocent buyers that they are legitimate.

Hi, the phone is new in box, unlocked, works in any network and comes with all the accesories and 1 year international warranty provided by factory. I am willing to sell this item for 250 USD you will not pay any custom taxes because I will ship to you as GIFT and i will pay the shipping and handling fees.

I will use UPS 2days air service (with insurance and 15 days return policy) as shipping service so that you may receive the package in less than 72 hours.

Payment: I want to use eBay like a third party to complete this transaction: I usually use PayPal but for the moment i`m expanding my account and i can`t send or receive any money So for this reason ebay let me use western union.

For our protection we will do this deal trough ebay square trade company and our transaction will be supervised by ebay safe harbour team. You will be 100% protected against description error and fraud. I never make any deal outside ebay. In case you don't get what you are paying for, you get a full refund from eBay. I have deposited about $4,000 as purchase protection in an eBay managed account. I am not able to withdraw any money from this account while there are any possible refund requests (60 days since the last transaction).

if it`s ok e-mail me back and i give you the detailes fo the transaction. thanks i wait

Re: dtscseller@googlemail.com

Hi,

I bid on an item on eBay but I'm really not sure about this seller (dtscseller@googlemail.com).... I found his eMail address on your web site... So I ask him if it's tring to FRAUD me and he said:


no sir. this transaction is secured by ebay. you are 100% safe. if something goes wrong ebay will refund you. please reply.

So I talked to him about your web site, his answer was:

that website is for ruining other seller's business. never trust that kind of websites. ebay sent you an email and told you to make the payment. i think that to make this transaction you have to make the payment. i understand your concerns but you have to trust me that i have made a lot of transactions on ebay. please reply.

He asked me to pay it on WesternUnion and he gave me his name (feak or not? Richard Martins) and a street address to London, Uk to ship the WesternUnion check.

Do you have an history or more information about this guys?

I'm trying to have more detail about him it's why I continue to talk with him!

The payment method i'm able to use at this moment is western union. eBay offers purchase protection plans for these situations. They will decide how you pay me so you can be insured for the entire value of this purchase. In case you don't get what you are paying for, you get a full refund from eBay. I have deposited about $11,000 as purchase protection in an eBay managed account. I am not able to withdraw any money from this account while there are any possible refund requests (60 days since the last transaction)I need you full name and shipping address now I will contact eBay and they will get back to us when the needed verifications are done and you got the purchase protection. This may take a few hours, so please be patient. You will be able to verify the validity of your purchase protection after you have qualified for it.

HI
First I want to tell you that my item is a brand new, unopened box all accessories included and also an international warranty. The invoice will come at the same time with the package. My price is the best you could get: 500 usd/unit, including the shipping and insurance taxes. We will pay them because the package will be delivered from Europe. As delivery service we use UPS2days air service or overnight (with insurance and 15 days return policy), because it's the faster. And if you will have a quick payment, we must also have a quick delivery. So that's why we use as a payment method Western Union money transfer, the fastest and also very secure way of sending money. So, if you agree with my terms I'm sure that we can close the deal as soon as possible. Waiting your quick answer right now,

THANK YOU

My item is brand new, unopened box all accessories included and also an international warranty. First I am going to tell you some things I think you should know before ending this deal. I travel a lot and now I am in Eastern Europe. The item is going to be shipped from europe also. Now, I can ship through UPS air next day delivery. I will pay for all taxes. If you wish you can also send me your full shipping info so I can make a reservation on your name . The price of the item is 600 usd (as I said earlier with shipping and insurance taxes included). I need some money as fast as possible so I am offering a 10 % discount if we end the deal in 24 hours. Here I am stuck to western union wire transfer.I can't use paypal because it's not available yet. Just because of this I set up an insurance with ebay which guaranties 100 % of this deal. If you wish I can contact eBay right away and have them send you an invoice with my insurance. If you agree on my terms I am sure we can close the deal right now. Please reply after you think it over.

Best regards.
