eBay Motors Abusive Seller Hubcapjoes
eBay Motors has been touted by their number one fanboy Hubcapjoes as being one of the best places to shop online for vehicles and automotive parts but if you look into the past of this fanboy you’ll see that he is nothing more than a shady promoter working for eBay Inc as a paid spokesman. Hubcapjoes, and other eBay Inc employees use YouTube to promote new buyers to the site so they can be scammed. We recommend that if you’re selling your vehicles online please use an honest site like AutoTrader or do the deal yourself from Craigslist. You’ll save yourself a world of hurt to avoid car buying fraud on eBay.
