This "Second Chance Offer" is not showing up in "My Ebay."
I'm almost sure it’s a scam.

They’ll probably gratefully accept any offer you make as long as you can send an immediate deposit – or full payment. He needs the money right now to avoid some personal catastrophe – and he’s willing to take any loss to get it! Fill in your own script.

Thieving bass-turds.



I sent the real seller a message through Ebay asking what happened (just in case! ).

Whatever you do JED's - DON'T do anything with this email including respond (it's just a waste of your time) if it doesn't appear in your "My Ebay"...It's DEFINITELY a scam. Seems to be happening more and more lately.

Yes , really . I feel that a well looked-after , low mileage CSVT deserves a better resale than I've seen some sell for in the past . Maybe someday soon my wish will come true . Like I said , they deserve better .

The "Second Chance" offers are definitely a spoof. I have some 69 Thunderbird items for sale and had a question about shipping a set of hubcaps to Finland (?!). They sent me the first fake "second chance" right after I answered. I think that’s how they got my email address.

Turns out this is a common tactic.

I hate that they have my email address. The wordage on the fake offers gets more and more urgent each time...

im sorry but I cant agree with this... chances are if im buying a 6 or 7 year old car, im not buying it to have high resale.

Now if I were buying say... a brand new Honda Civic in 4 or 5 years I would expect for the resale to hold very well on it. I would never pay a hell of a lot of money for a bone stock 2000 or older CSVT, as much as I would love to have one.

Well - you're obviously looking at this from the wrong side of the fence . I am the (first/only) owner of a low mileage , near mint CSVT - my next step would not be to BUY one , but to SELL one . It would be in MY best interest for them to sell at a HIGH price . IMHO , the cars are a damn sexy , very capable , very low production unit that deserves better than to be lumped with the thoughts of being a beat-down POS rental car . I feel some day it will get it's due .
