 ebay Tractor pricing

I have been on ebay looking at Kubota tractors. I have come across sellers that have models in 25-35 hp range with backhoe and attachments,low hrs (39 in one case) that are getting no bids. I emailed one seller and he gave me info that he ships from Netherlands (one week free shipping on TNT),Uses a secure exchange of money approved by ebay.The seller reveiws are good but the fact they have such low prices($5,000) for buy now,the tractors are out of the US and are getting no bids scares me away.Has anyone had experience with this?

IMHO, if I can't test drive it, I won't buy it, period.

It's a scam. If the deal is too good to believe, it's a scam. (I had to repeat it.)

Things that make it obvious:

1. It's a private listing, bidders must be approved.
2. Don't use my ebay email, use this one instead.
3. There's a 'buy it now' price in the add, but the ebay 'buy it now' wasn't used.
4. You have to pay via wire transfer or something that can't be reversed.
5. It's a 3 day or 1 day listing, as they know it will be pulled by ebay in 12-48 hours.
6. All pictures are of tractors that have already sold on ebay.

Those emails everyone has gotten from 'ebay' asking for your personal information - well that's how they 'hijaak' the account. They're using someone else's account for the fraudulent listing. Hence the positive feedback.

Ebay has a major issue on their hands, as there are always numerous scam listings any time you look for tractors. (Who knows what it's like for other auctions.) To attempt to thwart would make it more work for a legit auction, so that would hurt ebay's sales. Until the scams cut into their profits, there's not much motivation for ebay to fix it - after all - if you fall for it - you lose.

anyone can sell you a $25,000 tractor for $5000 that does not exist. the shipping is free b/c nothing will be shipped. they all list prices like: 2500$us or $2500us.
they usually have a US location listed in the ad (where the hacked account came from). when you contact them they are abroad but work for a company (usually fedex) that will ship to your door for free. the scams are pretty easy to spot. they love kubota and john deere. it was pretty bad with four wheelers when i was shopping too. basicly any high dollar motorized item that does not typically require a title or registration.
do a web search using the words "ebay scam" and sit back and read for days.

If you want a tractor go find a good dealer someone you can trust and go to for help. You chances of finding a pot of gold on E-Bay is slim.

Just ran across one of those "too good to be true" listings on ebay. A guy from Denmark with tractor located in Texas wanted just $4600 for a BX24 with just 5 hours on it. I began emailing back and forth with the seller and caught him in several lies. Its just a reminder to be carefull and I agree that if I cant test drive it I wont buy it.

I think they stay under $5000 because the FBI will not investigate a crime under $5000. At least I think I read that somewhere, probably the phoney cashier check scam, that seems to have died down some now. I sell quite a bit on ebay but as Jason said, the clues are obvious. Usually the escrow service is a fraud and that is where the money disappears. I wonder how many $million these scumbags steal every year...

Ebay identity theft is very common. Too common. Construction equipment is especially vulnerable, especially with respect to tractors and skidsteers. You've gotten those e-mails before asking you to update your info? Some people actually falls for it and give up their info only to find that their good ID is used to create such scams. The most telling sign is that the auctions urge you not to contact them through the ebay mechanism because they are above their limit. Ultimately, you pay their $3995 buy it now price and get nothing in return. By the time you figure out it is a scam, they have taken the money and ran.

TNT is a valid shipper. So just go and check the price to ship 1500+ lbs. It will be about $9000 for UK to US for 5-7 day delivery.

There is no way that this deal is real.

Last week there was a Kubota for less than $50 in the UK. Come on, less than $50. It was a very new tractor. Yes they would ship it here but to elinimate not serious bidders you had to email them direclty. For less than $50 what bidder would not be serious? I would have bought three if it had been real.
