RE: Usually hijacked accountws are 1 day auctions at insanely low Buy It Now prices

It ticks you off because you know that a few people can fall for it.
What I did to a guy a few years ago was this.He had an Mc275 for sale for 1900 BIN and free shipping of course.The item was listed in Ohio and I emailed the guy off ebay because he had his email listed like this last idiot did..Anyway,I told him I could pick it up and bring him cash because I don't live that far from Ohio.He had written me back and told me that there was a mistake in the add and that the amplifier is actually in England, being he was over there on business..He told me I could put the money in escrow to some fly by night company he had named and when I opened the box to inspect it to my satisfaction,I could then release the funds to him..I then traced his email to some place in Nevada,and being I didn't know exactly where it was, I told him that I was really a federal fraud investigator and that a Nevada State trooper would be over to pick him up for questioning..He didn't answer me back but within 20 minutes all his auctions were pulled.
