They are both from different sellers, but have the same photo for the second picture. The photo has the ebay protection sign and says "This is a quick sale so hit me with offers" and has an email address to contact them directly. In other words, it's a scam.
I know it's all pretty pointless, because the scammers'll probably put up another hundred listings... But an older retired relative has just been scammed in this way, and I'm really cross, so I had a hunt this morning to report any I could see, and have been really disappointed in how slow it is.
Surely the removal is due to someone complaining, and ebay looking and seeing that what the complainant says is true? You only have to see the ad to see it's fraudulent. But sadly people are still conned.
I bought some "genuine Apple iphone charging cables" this week - price was ridiculous (£2.99 for 3 but hey, it said genuine!). they arrived very promptly but clearly aren't genuine - very cheap materials, & wire coating is the wrong colour.
I requested a return "not as described" at about 6pm Friday & by 10pm Friday the item had been removed by ebay.
Today I've had an email from seller claiming that they are "Apple mfi certified cables" & asking if I've had any problems but I'm not even going to try them!
Why would you even want to buy 'apparently' 3 genuine iPhone cables for that price? Going form the price it's obvious they aren't genuine! When a genuine one starts from around £15.00 in the Apple Store. Some things are just too good to be true and the reason is mainly because it is too good to be true! Stick to the genuine ones. The fakes are so dangerous. You can't put a price on safety & life. I'll stick to paying a little more knowing that it's genuine.
OP i believe what you saying to be true actually. There was a documentary on it not so long ago called eBay scammers on ITV. They list vehicles etc, things that can't be posted and get you to do the transaction out of eBay, but you think your sending it within eBay due to the good spoof emails they send. The day arrives for drop off of item/or collection and you never get it. You can't claim your money back either from the bank. It's awful. But its happening more & more. See if you can watch it on catch or or something
Since Monday, I've been following this particular scammer. Every day, they put up three or four ads under the ride-on mower section, each one under a different account, presumably hacked. Every day I've been reporting them, and every day it takes two or three hours to be removed.
Sometimes, they get bids, so this gives the scammer plenty of time to contact the bidders.
