Just got scammed on ebay on a 56 f-100. Sent $8,500.00 to an account in Ca. Went on ebay sight under my account, they said the truck never existed on ebay. Even the trucking co. was fake. sqz-transport.net,the truck was in racing junk also under fardakit40. :evil: :evil: :evil: Can anyone help? The only name I have is Robert Simon from Eugene ,OR 97402 This gets better and better, took 2 hours to actually talk with a real person, they said it was not ebay but a duplicate sight with my account, figure this out. :?: :?: :?: Wanna talk to a real person on ebay 1-800-701-3229 and use any 6 numbers then press #

RJ Ad # , who was the actual person you sent your money to, phone #. And any other info you have will help, How did you buy from an ebay auction that never existed?

Also why in the world would you send 8500 bucks to someone for something you have never seen ? I dont care if they say payment is due within 48 hours or not. I would never send more then 100 bucks to cover thier costs, until I got to see it in person. If they dont like that then its time to walk away from the deal.

Again we need the RJ ad # and any other info you have. Its kinda hard to hang someone without the rope !

Did you ever talk to this person on the phone before sending the money? I would hope so and get as much personal info as possible just to cover your butt a little.
How did you make payment? Depending how might make it easier to get it back.
