Created an account for this, I don't know if it's being discussed elsewhere.

I nearly bought a car from "lexuschap" but he rang too many alarm bells - http://www.expressandstar.com/news/2016/04/16/rogue-car-dealer-hit-with-fine-over-unsafe-mazda-mx5-he-sold-on-ebay/

That Mazda he is still trying to sell is the same one he was taken to court over in April 2016 and received a £3000 fine and a criminal record.

Its worth noting that his real name is Umar Ijaz.

i can't understand how he has 100% feedback he must manipulate the system

Ebay don't give a monkeys about traders pulling strokes they are only interested in getting revenue from them.

Perhaps he's learned to play the "discrimination" card, and people back off for fear of being accused of a "hate crime".

Political correctness can be used as weapon in the arsenal of ne'er-do-wells, unfortunately.

What feedback he has is fiddled by him by using another account.

It could well be embarrassment or they might not know who they are selling too.

Sorry if this is an old thread but this chap is still trading, buying/selling on ebay. His first message to me was an offer of a third less than I was wanting the sell my LS460 for followed by "you can keep the ****ty numberplate".

A little bit of investigating showed me that he's clearly been rude and dishonest before (to put it mildly!)

Best avoided altogether.  I don't think any forum member would even consider dealing with him.

Thats very common amongst ebay sellers, they work between themselves that I know   but there seems/must be something else where they can get the very high %'s.

Best bet with feedback is ignore it and rely on/check out your rights in law in the case of conflict, note, ebay 'rules' are not the law & in no way do they hinder and process of law. Also, if you pay paypal via a debit card you can simply tell the bank you want the money back & its back in your account within secs, LOL I got banned from ebays forum for putting that in a post in which someone was having difficulty getting their money back.

As a recent owner I had no idea about "Lexus Chap". Threads like this are handy. When I ran BMWs the UK forum had a sticky about a dealer somewhere or other that was notorious for cheap dodgy cars. The thread ran to pages and pages and through liberal use of keywords and regular updating it was always top of the page if anyone Googled the dealer's name. Very good :biggrin:

He uses "1exuschamp" now. He doesn't seem to sell Lexus anymore,  probably got fed up with the LOC members warning everyone one about him.

Well he seemed keen on my LS460 (albeit at an insulting price) and I notice he sold/listed a similar one recently.

Thats right, ebay is what it says it is, ''An auction site with some normal distance selling selling options''...........buyer beware!

Also, I've only just realized this is a thread started in Feb 2014.....ehh dear, poor fool me, poster beware :yucky:
