Over here in the lanz of OZ we have seen a very interesting ebay scam appear.

Scammers advertise for employees to 'list' items for them on ebay. Scammers provide listing details and get the sellers to change their bank account details to scammers.

Now listings are run at reasonable discounts, money is collected by the listing person, passed onto the scammers and no items are ever sent.

Now, lots of unhappy ebay members, open disputes and the seller is banished from ebay and money refunded (paypal). However the brains behind it dissapear and it is rinse and repeat.

This scam is very well organised, nice fake websites, legitimate looking Australian shell companies, nice fakemonials and they go to the trouble of faking/manipulating buyer feedback. Last one I saw even changed user names to reflect the company name so to look even more legit.

Listings are not proper listings, lots of image files instead of actual words (aviod a keyword search anyone?)

Good(ish) things about this scam - local people involed, local companies set up and local bank accounts. Shocked

Overstock solutions?

I wonder if Overstock.com would be interested in this, as this site is famous worldwide, and would be interested in scammers using their trademark and name to defraud people.
