 Kubota Scam is world wide

It's not just Kubotas, and not just tractors. Scams are everywhere on eBay and they just doesn't care as long as they get their fees. Shill bidding, stolen photos, hijacked accounts, deeply flawed feedback mechanism, eBay has it all. If someone came up with an alternative site that was aggressive toward scammers and had more reasonable fees they'd clean eBays clock.

Like others, I just browse ebay to see what is going on and noticed this item has issues, 170015269966 because these machines well for a lot more than $2700 price and that includes all shipping.

 Kubota Scam is world wide

There is a few tell-tale signs on any scam ad like this.

First is they use snappy graphics instead of eBay's regular sales page. This isn't to catch your attention, it is to avoid automatic scanning software which will quickly draw unwanted attention to the ad because of an email address included in the copy.

The second is the very slight grammatical and spelling errors. Nobody goes to the effort to make such a fancy page, and doesn't check for the basic spelling, etc., to be correct. Nobody who's first language is English that is.

A quick peek at the ad reveals the hidden data. Anybody need a chuckle? This guy is a regular old Nigerian version of Mr. Hainey!! Remember Green Acres?? LMAO!!

This guy has more email addresses than you could believe!!

Best of luck.

best bet is if you can't drive there to pick it up and pay cash then don't buy it. Some people deserve to get burnt out of $$$$ for being too stupid. Momma always said if it looks too good to be true it probably is unless you drive there and pay cash after you load it in the back of your chevy!

Ebay (and the rest of the internet for that matter) is truely the modern day equivalent of the Wild West. The only one looking after you is YOURSELF. Be careful, be smart, protect yourself and you won't get burned. Freedom has its price!
