Buyer Says Scammers Use eBay Listings as Bait
Note from the Editor: We do not advocate visiting the site referenced in this letter. (The domain is registered using the address of the Intel Museum.) Also note the site was reported on the eBay boards in November.
Here is a new internet scam I just came across. They got me! Site is wellclosets.top
They appear to have taken eBay listings and put them on their site with impossibly low prices. I bought one, paid with a debit card and a few minutes later had an email from the bank about fraudulent charges.
There were two charges attempted from China, one successfully, one declined. Probably within minutes, or seconds, of when I submitted my info. At least some of their ads are directly from eBay.
They get the payment info, then use it elsewhere. No charges have appeared from Wellclosets.top.
Take a look at their site, they even have a category for eBay Motors listed! I reported it to eBay, also my bank. We will see what happens.
