This month is eBayMotorsSucks.com’s 10th year online anniversary

Educating the consumer about eBay Motors and Other Venues Internet Car Scams since 2004!

 
PRLog - Mar. 11, 2014 - SAN JOSE, Calif. -- It is my belief that if eBay would have taken a stand against fraud back in the beginning it wouldn’t have reached biblical proportions.

It would have been easy enough to email a monthly community newsletter to the members alerting them of new threats to the community.

But nope.. Then CEO Meg Whitman was busy building eBay up and creating new services etc. While stuffing her pockets full of $$!

The birth of Internet Car Scams was conceived on eBay Motors around 2003, and has since spread to other websites and venues. Fraudsters are even advertising in print publications. No doubt with someones stolen credit card.

Fraudsters started hijacking eBay sellers accounts and offering unbelievably good deals on non existent cars. They also registered new accounts, but the preferred method was to hijack a high feedback sellers account to reassure the buyer the deal was legitimate and the buyer could trust the seller.

You see back in the beginning eBay was founded by Pierre Omidyar under the simple concept that everyone had something good to offer. Trust and Community was the cornerstone of eBay’s growing empire. But scams and fraud soon started chipping away at that cornerstone of trust that Pierre created.

This website was born in 2004 as a method to reach out and educate the consumer that such an unbelievably low price was a scam. Buyers were literally getting slaughtered by fraudsters left and right.
