  • Fraudulent E-bayer (mp3'er?)

    So I get this random E-mail from a guy wanting to know more about "my carputer for sale on E-bay." This comes as a shock to me because I never even considered selling my carputer! After a little bit of searching I find this crook using MY install photos to sell his item. He even is so brash that he claims the photo is of the system "running in his car". Here's the ad and my photo is in there as of the moment I'm writing this post. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1 Edit: he changed the picture, but read further down to see what it used to look like and what I changed it to look like before he fixed the picture.

    So being a good little detective I dig a little deeper. I find out the crook has used ANOTHER photo you will all recognize from the mp3car website. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=5786853806 Edit: He deleted ppgt94's photo from his website. He was also claiming PPGT94's system was running in his car.

    Digging even further, I find his website! http://www.antipromotions.com/page2.htm Edit: A lot changed overnight. He took his entire website down after reading through all these posts. I forwarded him the link to the thread via E-bay E-mail.

    If anyone knows who is behind this, I'd love the chance to discuss this matter with him in a dark alley. If the REAL owners of the pictures of those installs want to come forward, I'm sure they too would have some choice words to share.

        Also check out his other sales, seems like scamming is a full time job for him.
        I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

          Hold on a sec - let's see how long this lasts... I'm changing the photo in his ad since he was dumb enough to direct link it from my site.

                You sir, are a genius. You otta make it like kind of like the originial, so he won't notice right away, or else make it point to this post. Like "Go here to find out why you shouldn't buy this: "

                That's funny though.

                        Now he has also changed the descriptor. He is no longer saying this is the system running in HIS car, he simply states it the system running in "a car". FARGING BASTAGE!

                          I reported him to Ebay and mp3car. But you should've seen the picture that ran on his page for a few minutes. It was a picture of a car on fire with a message at the bottom telling everyone to not buy from him. DAMN THAT WAS FUN! Now I wish I hadn't reported it or tipped him off just so we could see how long it would have stayed up there.

                              Oh sure! I'm sure that's the case. The fraud came into play where he was posting a pic of my car and claiming it was his own. He's completely changed the page now. DAMN!
