read my comments on ebay tickets
August-9th-2006, 11:55 AM
The guy selling these tickets e-mailed me!!!!
I saw the auction last week and first e-mailed him to see if he left "0" out of the price...$10,000 instead of $1,000
He got back to me yesterday saying his boss owned the tickets and would be unable to attend the game and then rambled off about using "square trade" and Western Union to deposit the money...blah, blah, blah...
I told him that this was too good to be true and that there is no way anyone, not even a Cowboys fan would sell those tickets for $25 each per game, since market value would be in the neighborhood og $500 each per game.
I'm new to eBay but sniffed this one out immediately.
I also got word from the winnng bidder on that auction for 2 upper level season tickets for $761...he said he got notified right after the auction that it was a scam...I actually got a "snd chance" offer from the seller but declined once I figured out that, it too was a scam.
Be careful my fellow ES/eBayers

Here is the e-mail I got from this guy...be careful...
The total price for 4 Washington Redskins FULL SEASON TICKETS ! SECTION 101 located in SECTION 101 ROW 1 IS $ 1000. The tickets will be released and shipped in August.
I sell them for my boss. He is from USA. Right now we are located in LONDON, UK
with some business problems and my boss will not arrive in time that's why I'm selling
the tickets for him. He bought them trough his company so don't worry the tickets are
genuine. Beside this we will use a safe scheme.
We will use Square Trade to handle this. They will act like a 3rd party in this deal like
We will use Western Union as a method of payment and Fed Ex as a shipping method.
Here are in few words the deal steps:
Buyer and seller agree on the transaction terms and a selling price. Seller contacts eBay's
Square Trade Center with the transaction details; eBay's Square Trade Center accepts the
transaction and offers purchase protection to the buyer (if the transaction is declined, no
further action is required from either the buyer or the seller);
The buyer deposit the payment at a Western Union office.
After the payment is deposited, the eBay's Square Trade Center will released the notification that the transfer details are received. After buyer receives the merchandise has five days to inspect it.
If it is complete and as described, the buyer should accept the merchandise.
If he refuses the merchandise, the buyer must ship the merchandise back to the seller within three business days. After the inspection period is over, the buyer must contact eBay's Square Trade Center with the result of the inspection. If the buyer refuses the merchandise, the money from Western Union is retired after the tracking number for the returned shipment is verified.
If you decide to keep the merchandise you will provide the transfer details to the seller in order to pick his money.
Attention: Sending the payment by any other method will void this transaction and your right to refund.
The payment details are confidential and will not be released under any circumstances.
Square Trade security measures are constantly reviewed and modified given involving circumstances globally, drawing on both internal assessments and the support of government agencies.
Their constant priority is for the safety of their people, their customers, and public. Square Trade always tries to fulfill its customers' need.
If you agree with my terms please drop me your full name and address so we can start the deal.
ATTENTION: IN CONCLUSION THE MONEY STAY AT WU UNTIL THE BUYER RECEIVE THE TICKETS ARE IT IS SATISFIED ABOUT THEM.
Shipping will be done trough Fed Ex overnight delivery after tickets are released in August. It will take about 24 hours to reach your location.
IF YOU WANT TO PURCHASE THEM EMAIL ME BACK WITH:
YOUR FULL NAME:.......
I WILL NEED THESE DETAILS FOR SQUARE TRADE SO THEY CAN CONTACT YOU
