    Thanks for all the info, but as someone who has spent time every day for weeks looking for my campervan on ebay. It has become clear to me by my own searches ,reading posts on the ebay forum and even ebay’s own warnings, that every day often more than once, listings appear in the campervan and motorhome sections that are obviously from scammers.
    Usually quite a few at exactly the same time, vans that have low mileage and are just priced too low to believe.
    You are asked to put a deposit, supposedly returnable to secure this van, and no it’s not possible to come and view the van first.
    If you check the sellers other items and feedback, the usual thing is lots of nice cars, motorhomes, etc at great prices. But feedback showing just a few non motoring items sold a long time ago .
    Ebay does try to take them down each day but often they can be there for a day or 2.
    Just thought I’d share, now on with my search ! M.
