Post Suspected scammer on 121bid.com...
Here is the email I have just sent to 121bid admin:

Hi Eddie, sorry to bother you again!
I have purchased 10 Satnavs from the seller designer2007, as I am not going to send over £1400 to a stranger with absolutely no track record on here I sent a message back asking when I could pick them up. He has sent back a message saying that he did not offer pick up and that he "can now only accept UK Bank Transfer via credit / debit card inside 5 days of auction ending, due to too many scams on the internet via paypal." I have no intention of sending any money to him as I now firmly believe him to be a scammer. Ten minutes of detective work have revealed that: He is not on the electoral roll, he is not in the telephone directory, and his address is not recognised via Royal Mail!
As I am sure you will agree the whole thing stinks and I would appreciate your advice. Regards, Alex


Replied back to the suspected scammer:

Hi Mr Buckley,
Unfortunately company policy does not allow me to send that amount of money to a seller such as yourself with no track record on this site. I am sure you will agree that it is much safer for all of us if we come and pick up the items and give you cash into your hand having inspected the goods in person. As we are making deliveries in that area tomorrow I hope you will not mind if we drop in some time in the afternoon.
Kind regards, Alex


We will see what happens. 121bid, unlike Ebay, take scams very seriously!

Sounds like a scam to me mate, at least you have the brains not to get caught out!

Hehe... I knew as soon as I saw it that it was too good to be true!

Like many of us on here by now, I can smell a scam from a street away! :twisted:
Check out his other items if you want a laugh, and his "about me" page, classic!

Earlier on he had another auction for a raffle to win his villa somewhere or other, at £125 a ticket.... its gone now, maybe pulled?

Yep, he has been suspended, mainly on the strength of not wanting people to pick up the items from his home address.

He did send me another message saying that this was because he got stuff sent direct from his supplier. Nothing about that on the auction!
I only buy from people who have the goods in their possession, not "Dropshippers" anyway!

Eddie on 121bid did run through the very stringent checks that they make on new members, apparently the guy did check out ok!
But we both still agreed he was suspicious.

Better to be safe than sorry. In the words of The Who "We won't get fooled again"!

Was that on 121bid? I think I saw the same one but did not get round to reporting it.

Well done you!

I have just found out that if you search for Cialis, it comes up with three pages of items, mostly classic Mini parts!
Just worked out it is because it picks the word out of speCIALISts!! :.:
