Uh yeah...

His reserve wasn't met at $25K+ why would he sell it to you for 16?

I just got a second chance buy on this IRide at $16000.00. It is the owner who is offering the second chance buy. It just sounds really cheap. Any ideas

Sounds sketchy.. But on the chance that this is lagit, its a great deal and you should buy it!!

newone, Your from TN and the seller shows TN as well. IN the picture you can see the name of the dealership. If your really interested you should make a road trip and inspect it for yourself. If its legit, the seller will deal with you inperson there vs. giving a % to Ebay. Just a thought.

Just to clarify - the email that newone reveived IS a SCAM

The sale of the Malibu is not a scam, it looks like a dealership was selling it and the reserve was not met so they relisted it. Normal and expected process.

Second Chance Offers are offered through ebay, however this is a very easy way for scammer to prey on ebayers. There are a lot of good deals on ebay but when stuff just doesn't add up it's probably a scam. Why would a guy list a boat and have a good bid of over $25K (reserve not met) and then turn around and offer it to you for $16K - answer: He wouldn't! But the scammers would all day long! It it's too good to be true then guess what? SCAM!

On a side note, log into your "My eBay" account and see if you have the same message there or if the guy just sent you an email. Most of the time the scams are done through email addresses only. If it was truly an offer from ebay then it would go through your ebay account and ebay messages. If it just shows up as an email then that's your first clue. Also never respond to those. Many of them try to get you to "log in" on their official looking form - well once you do they then have your password and take over your account and often log into your account and change your password so you can't access your account or even tell ebay what is going on easily. In the mean time they are listing all sorts of scams with your account! Ah... it never ends.
