Thanks Vince.
1600 vehicles for sale at silly prices. This from a seller with an ebay score of about 80.
Instructions say do not bid or buy until you have contacted seller by email. I wonder what will happen if you do email them. I will not be finding out.

The ACTUAL; owner of the ebay account is not a rogue. You do not suddenly become a crook overnight with 80 feedback at 100% positive, UNLESS your account is taken over by a scammer. If you correspond with the account via ebay, in a while you will get a message from ebay stating the same and that ebay are in the process of returning the account the the rightful owner.

I always report half a dozen of them when they appear. Usually Ebay clear them off within a few hours, but yesterdays hung around for longer than that, In fact, the djmarcus ones are still there this morning.
