Just wondering, what tipped you off that this was a scam?
Another user actually spotted this one. I just checked into it, and there are quite a few give-aways. I don't want to publish all of them here for scammers to read.
Not having access to IPs and stuff like that here are some things that should have made you a bit suspicious:
The first is that this was posted on the same day the user registered. Not per se a scam but always a reason to go: "Hmmm?"
The subject line is in all caps and has been cut off. That's because my subject lines are limited in length. You will not realize that if you just copy and paste the subject from somewhere else. If you were typing that you'd realize that it stopped accepting characters.
Read the actual subject line. Sounds like something a skydiver would write?
More importantly though (and this is harder to know unless you saw the ad on eBay), when it was posted there, the user claimed to be in the US. Now, from the ad and the profile, he lives in the UK. A quick look at the IP address he used to register and post the ad from, and looking at the country that IP belongs to made it even more bizarre.
The ad looks legit because it was copied from a legitimate ad on eBay. You have to spot the scam mostly through other means. I rely heavily on you guys to let me know when you smell a rat.
