    eBay Scams Be Careful!

    Advertisement



    Hello All,

    Be very careful when bidding on a new blackberry on ebay. I just reported a scam with only 5 hours left, and it was shut down. Somebody could have lost a lot of money.

    Things to watch out for...

    -No need to bid just email me at _____@yahoo.com

    -All of the sellers feedbacks are for petty items

    -Even if the seller has perfect feedback, only use the contact seller button, no matter what they say is wrong with that. many sellers steal accounts and do not want you contacting the real owner of the account, so they want you to email them through ebay but via an email account that they have listed on the aution. DO NOT TRUST THIS.

    Another thing is, most people already know not to trust ebay security center emails, they are usually fakes, however... there is a new scam, they send a question about an item, and that leads you to a spyware site. Be very careful that all ebay sites you visit begin with www.signin.ebay.com......

    BE CAREFUL!

    Also, anytime you get an email that has a link from eBay or even Pay Pal, just take the time to open up a separate browser for that page. Then use the normal login. DON'T login via link in email. If you do get a suspicious email from eBay or Pay Pal, you can always forward them to spoof@ebay.com (for eBay) or spoof@paypal.com (for paypal).

    Are the internal parts of the 7105t interchangeable with other 7100 models i.e can you change the actual housings?

    i saw a listing on ebay, it was a one day listing which is gone now for a bb 8707. what a joke the price was started at $800. lucky no one bid on it they probably would have been disappointed
