Cheap Esprit's on ebay


Recommended Posts

I've done a quick search to see if it's been discussed previously but no results.

Does anyone understand what's going on with the cheap Esprits which keep appearing in batches on ebay?

They usually appear in groups of four and are often the same old pictures gathered off google.

It's not limited to Esprits either. Looking through other classic car marque listings, the disease is there too.

Prices are usually in the £2500 to £5800 range and ebay usually remove them in a day or two.

Been seeing them appear for months now so I'm curious if anyone understands what the bogus sellers objectives are.

Andy.

Yes. Usually minimal images but promise more if you email them.

In the past had some elaborate story about selling for a deceased relative but they live a distance away so no viewing possible.

Ask for payment but if you are not happy with delivered vehicle, they will return at cost to them. Your money is meant to be safe and guaranteed but obviously it's not.

I spent a fun time a few years ago reporting these sellers, they often have many listings.

Thanks Simon. Makes perfect sense.
