Just found this on e-bay!

Is this the cheapest Danbury OR is it a scam?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-T2-DANBURY-BRAZILLIAN-BAY-WINDOW-CAMPER-VAN-5-BERTH-POWER-STEERING-LOW-MILES-/122037043153?

If it is real it would be a Bargain. But with sellers feedback of zero I am not sure.

Actually maybe the Seller wanted to put it up for bidding with a starting bid of £10K but listed it as classified by accident?

Might be worth someone contacting them.

Almost certain it's a scam. The seller has zero selling history and claims delivery and returns accepted. The chances are that the listing has been copied from someone else. @Tallulah reported these when there was a number of them last year.

Ive reported this to eBay TWICE!! And they haven't removed it...

Its really bad as someone will fall for it and place a deposit never to be seen again!

If its to good to be true it normally is!!

No doubt payment will be by Western Union due to a problem with their PayPal account!

I've sent a message to Buster Jack who will investigate and deal with eBay directly.

It's still on there. Ebay are very poor/slow at removing these scams. Just hope no ones fallen for it.

This is a copy of the original listing that the scam was copied from:

Original listing

eBay have all the details but are taking their time.

By the way, I bought my van via eBay. I did not part with any cash though until I was collecting.

eBay isn't the problem, it's just that it's available for anyone to use, including the bad guys.

We bought Eddie on eBay. I was very careful after hearing so many horror stories.
I think you have to remember that the seller can also have a hard time. There are plenty of stories out there of people who have been scammed by buyers who 'live abroad' or on oil rigs and offer to pay after delivery.
Like anything if it looks dodgy it probably is.

Such a long time ago now, but we bought our van on ebay too. Went all the way to Leeds (from Leicester) to drive first and check van over etc. Agreed price and then returned week later to 'do the deal' bit. A really good transaction.

Perhaps we should add a bit on here about buying Brazibays off ebay but I suppose there is loads of advice on how it should be done already.

I know people are ripped off left, right and centre in so many ways now. Ebay scams, phone scams etc. The people doing it are 'professionals.' They know every trick in the book and can be very convincing. I've a friend's mum who lost a six figure sum to a scam !!!

We bought Bumble via eBay; drove from home to Peterborough and drove another one (my first drive!) and then up to Sunderland where we drove Bumble the following day and bought her when we got back from the test drive.

We collected her that afternoon, having transferred the money.
