Hi all,

Just thought I notify you guys about the Bartech Focus system on Ebay number 330310683521
Deal direct with Ken if you are bidding and NOT some guy called Alen Rustagi

I have been scammed off my few months long savings because 'Alen' managed to hack the ebay account and used it to get my money.

So please bid with caution and I hope this thread has been useful. Thanks

Warm Regards

Joel 'Now Broke' San Juan

**if by any chance you should know a Alen Rustagi who lives in UK pls notify me, will appreciate your kind help**

Wow dude, that sucks. Sorry for you, real sorry. I just kicked a scammer a few weeks ago. He was selling a baerbell arm for 1500 dollar, yeah right. I reported him on time and he got removed. Always, ALWAYS ask technical questions about the item. Most scammers have no idea what the are selling. I asked him if the hydrolics in the arm where leaking, and he responded that he checked the arm and didnt see any hydrolic oil. I knew enough.

Best and thx for the warning

Someone kinda hacked into the owners account and set up something called a spoof account. The mail which is 'approved' by ebay looks very authentic only for a few tell tale signs that I figured out only after the whole incident. anyway he even set up a payment method into his own account. till now, the real owner and I have no idea how he did it but the police say it traces back to an internet cafe in UK.

the item does exist but the bank account to credit somehow got re-routed.

ebay is investigating, not sure what's the outcome yet.

In any case its a hard lesson I hope you guys don't encounter.

Regards
J.
