Another fake Mobil Pegasus listing. Mods please do not move or remove this, more people need to see this listing and know about this scam.

So much for not moving, didn't even send me a message either! I guess In a few weeks when someone posts they got scammed I'll just say, I tried to warn you!

This topic has been beat to death here on oldgas. Yet these horses keep showing up on ebay. No amount of posts "warning" about these is going to stop the sale of them. You are wasting your time.


FREEDOM oil items wanted.

WRONG
This is NOT a T-53 Pay attention!
Only thing wrong about this auction is IF it doesn't sell for $2500, seller Cancels Auction & it will be RE-LISTED AGAIN.

Sorry but when you blow the whistle, you want to make sure you're right! This is definitely an original porcelain "cookie cutter" and a pretty nice one at that! If I lived within driving distance, I'd already be on my way to pick it up!

There are obviously those who do not know about this scam, as seen from these posts. It's the $2500 BIN email me part. The seller keeps changing user IDs and the font of the part of the BIN is just like a Craigslist scam for a $15,000 car for $1900. I haven't emailed the guy nor do I want to. If you do I'm 100% sure he will say send payment to India or somewhere like that! He steals legitimate photos and descriptions and inserts his BS!

READ THE DESCRIPTION TO SEE HOW MUCH OF A SCAM THIS IS! IT SPELLS IT OUT FOR YOU PLAIN AS DAY HES COPYING AND PASTING. "NO DEALS CUT OUTSIDE OF EBAY" "RESERVE IS FIRM"

How can you be 100 % sure if you haven't even talked to him?
