Hello one and all :)

I was browsing ebay as you do and came across an advert for a laptop, price seemed a touch good to be true and in the advert the seller said :-

Please email me to continue with the sale...obvious warning signs right away.. ( dodgy bypassing ebay protections)

His feedback is odd..

Opinions ?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/nolingam/m.h ... 7675.l2562

This is the response I got when I emailed him:

It's a scam. That is not how escrow works through eBay. They're using a fake VAT number and spectra-spedition.com is brand new and privately registered for 1 year only:
