Tricking poor buyers.... Could you report this scam to eBay?

I just reported it. It's fraud to specifically say you're selling an Apple Macbook Air when you're selling an MSI windows system.

You would be surprised at how often these come up. I have seen dump people bid them up all the way to $800 or so!! :eek: Any time I come across them I report them.

Honestly though, when you are bidding on items check the facts the seller puts on there. If you are looking for a macbook air, you know the screen isnt 12.1" and you should know that it isnt white or I have also seen dark blue. :rolleyes: And any time it says windows xp as the os then that should be a dead give away lol!

technically what they are listing it down is fraud but take a look at this

Aren't people reporting them after they get them too? You'd think paypal would get tired of it... But then I see the seller on that one has a feedback of 0, so who knows....

fleabay is turning into such a rat hole, sadly.

If anyone is actually silly enough to buy it AND buy it from a seller with zero feedback... it's kind of hard to feel sorry for them. He doesn't even bother to use a photo without someone else's username on it.
