https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-ESCORT-MK1-MEXICO-1971-BARN-FIND/264057744157?hash=item3d7b116b1d:g:~MAAAOSwK1Rb-Xvs

762 vehicles for sale, selling from Italy but all vehicles located in the UK. All the photos are in different locations etc etc

Question is: Scam or not Scam?

It looked like most of the photos had been lifted straight off the internet. They first started listing about a week ago so its taken a while to get them removed.

I think I saw them all too. They all carried a 3000 price tag.
