    I just wanted to know if they got a refund, in part or in full, because it was an absolute lemon.
    The seller (a neighbor of mine) lied through his teeth in the description, and the guy who bought it didn't know any better unfortunately.

    There were many things wrong with it, including a rooted engine, and it sold for $1900!

    Who says I am going to go vigilante?
    I wanted to try and contact the guy to try and help him through his (expected) problems, as I have a steadily growing pile of spares. I am also looking for locals to bash with.

    just because it is buyer beware does not give someone the right to lie through their teeth and rip someone off to the tune $1,900!!

    That's a pretty harsh attitude! What is the problem about trying to be nice to others? What goes around comes around...

    Hmmm we had a guy turn up to our working bea the other weekend who had just brought a 5th scale off Ebay, with all sorts of problems, radios not working, wouldn't idle, hard to start, stuff like that.

    I didn't pay much attention to what it actually was though. (got no real interest in off road)

    I say give us the link to the sale and someone may recognize it.

    I think this scam is absolutely shocking. If that was me that had baught the baja with that false information, I'd be ringing up the higher authorities to get him in the ****.

    Did you ever confront him while or before the auction took place??

    Yeah I did - He just sort of shrugged it off.
    I actually tried to open a fake account and win it myself, but did it too late.

    dude, if you haven't noticed here is AUSRC

    we are not affililated to fleaBay & have no connection with them

    eBay have their feedback system, some sort of community forums
    there too last time i looked... why start witchhunt here?

    if OP wanted to "help ppl not get ripped" & ergo sabotage his
    friend's auction, he could've posted BEFORE the auction ended huh?
    think about that

    I have been scanning the introductions thread for new guys for a couple of weeks, with no luck, so I tried posting up here, in the hope the buyer would see it.

    Now genius, how would I know how much it was going to sell for before the auction ended? How did I know it would sell for way too much?


    Stop trolling this thread tool.

    In all fairness, Zoomer is not trolling, He is a Moderator, and part of his position requires him to keep an eye on posts and threads to ensure that rules are followed and content remain not only friendly and informative, but to also keep it clean, he certainly doesnt need to be called names, and deserves a little Respect.

    meh, ever considered perhaps, for whatever unknown reason - buyer is happy?

    http://offer.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAP..._None_ViewLink

    ^^^ fact from the story... winning bidder put in winning bid 5hrs before end & didn't get outbid

    Did he pay too much? ... maybe he really liked green + orange, who's to say?
    Do sellers polish turds & get them gleaming shiny before advertising for sale?
    (heck try see your nearest used car yard)


    Are you even sure the nooby-fleaBayer (1 feedback) even PAID UP?!


    oh hang on... whaddya know... the Baja was RELISTED 2 wks later!!
    http://offer.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAP...m=110507495677
    and that auction was bid up to ~$900 before it was canned by seller

    which would suggest original $1900 sale DID NOT FOLLOW THRU


    newsflash: Your poor ripped off nooby buyer is also the Easter Bunny.
