    Its a scam, you are right to run. Giveaway signs are always the email at bit and free shipping. And its only open to pre-approved bidders aswell.

    I wish they would use proper english aswell. :(

    "Note: This listing is restricted to pre-approved bidders or buyers only."


    Doesn't seem to want to sell it _through_ eBay, just on eBay. I wonder why. :)

    Hmm... photos of boxes -- not encouraging.

    Not much of a selling history, either.

    the pre approved thing is usually a give away of a scam, it probably is too good to be true if you ask me, stay away i would
