A general warning as this is a new one on me - the scammers continue...

I bid on an AC1200 but a scammer put in a higher bid. I then received a message purporting to be from "Second Chance" offering me the enlarger at my bid price as the high bidder had "withdrawn"...

The "Second Chance" offer was in fact sent using eBay's "Contact Member" system, not "Second Chance" so at 1st sight it seems OK as it has all the correct eBay.com mail server addresses in the emal header. What the scammer can't change however is the "click on this button to reply" link which eBay adds to the end of the email - this of course points to a different eBay member than the original seller....

These people are getting annoying! I would have had a AC1200 plus bits for 285 without this scumbag.... I've notified eBay, the seller and the other people who bid in case the scammer contacted them too.

"Lets be careful out there"...

Cheers, Bob.
