SEVIER COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) — eBay is considered a safe place to order and sell a variety of products, but scammers are taking advantage of the online marketplace. Unsuspecting customers don’t learn about their loss until it’s too late, and when they try to contact the seller, the online site has been taken down.

Despite numerous attempts to get a refund, or the car hoist they ordered delivered, Lyn Meadows has been unsuccessful. It’s not every day that someone orders a hoist that can lift 10,000 pounds, but a check of consumer sites across the country shows others have fallen victim to this scam.

Meadows showed us her husband’s garage where he remodels older cars. He’s a welder and was planning to place a car lift within the garage, but it never arrived.

They ordered the lift through eBay from an online site on January 10, using a credit card through their PayPal account.

On January 14, an email was sent confirming the car lift has been delivered, but it wasn’t there. Meadows says, “We called FedEx and had a message left saying the item was delivered to a place in Sevierville and that wasn’t our house.”

The item sent by FedEx was delivered to this office building in Sevierville. Neither Meadows nor her husband have ever

This 1967 Pontiac Firebird Was Stored Outside for Too Long, And You Can Guess the Rest …

The 1967 Firebird was available with a choice of several six-cylinder and V8 units, all in an attempt to target an audience as large as possible by offering an engine for pretty much anyone who wanted to get a Pontiac. The base model was therefore the Firebird OHC, which came equipped with a 230 (3.8-liter) six-cylinder developing 165 horsepower. A four-barrel version of this unit was installed on the Firebird Sprint, this time producing 215 horsepower. Those who wanted more performance obviously opted for a V8 unit, and the first on the list was the 326 (5.3-liter) with 250 horsepower and installed on the model called intuitively the Firebird 326. Once again, Pontiac also offered a 4-barrel version, this time called Firebird H.O. and benefitting from a total output of 285 horsepower. But the crème de la crème for the model year 1967 was the Firebird 400, which was fitted…

For $37000, You Can Ride This Rare Red-Painted DeLorean All The Way Back To The Future

The DMC DeLorean, which was immortalized by the Back to the Future movie franchise, was famous for the Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed brushed stainless steel bodywork, but a red-painted one is currently listed for sale on eBay with a price tag of £27,500 ($37,563). Even though the DeLoreans left the factory with unpainted brushed steel body panels, it is believed there are four or five gold-plated examples, one painted in red, one in yellow, and one in black. Besides those models, we can’t be sure if any of the owners chose to paint their car in another color – especially after an accident that would make the unpainted panels quite hard to repair.
