Default Are these the scam Hardies?

I know there has been a set of Hardies floating around on eBay for a while now, that is a scam. Is this them? Looks kinda sketchy...

Scam! Just look at the buying instructions to figure that out. He also will sell you a set of uilleann pipes and a bridge.

It gets reposted every couple of weeks with the same pictures every time. Ditto for 2 Uilleann pipes, same person. Just report it to ebay as unauthorized payment method if you see it.

You'd think, as many times as this has
been posted, AND reported, that eBay
would filter it and expel the scammer(s).

(I'm such an idealist.)

The same seller "foamforyou" just posted silver & ivory Hardies and two sets of uilleann pipes.

I report these listing to Ebay as soon as I see them, and I urge everyone to do the same. If Ebay consistently gets a pile of reports then maybe they'll do something.

BTW the way I report them is

"listing practices/avoiding Ebay fees/contact info on listing"

because the seller doesn't want people to bid, but contact him directly with the button on the listing, and do the transaction outside of Ebay.

But really these listings violate a number of things. Obviously the seller doesn't actually have any items but simply grabs images from other listings.

IMHO...eBay doesnít care and just gives lip service meant to assuage.

itís in business to make fees from sales...it would reduce that potential amount by cutting people off....and not positioned with a staff of experts to investigate/validate he said -she said scam claims.
