Just by looking at the auction page...it doesn't look like a scam to me. What makes you think it is, the price?

DEFINATELY A SCAM


Look at his history.. then look at the products... then look at how all the guys have ZERO feedback, and finally look at the date of purchase. It really does scream scam. I would definately stay away.


This guy probably made his account and feedback score all in one day. If I werent so lazy I would report this guy to Ebay.


If something is too good to be true, you might as well forget about it. I would much rather pay something at full price than to have to worry if I ever get my item.

I don't know... it's not obvious one way or the other to me.

edit: didn't see that about his feedback all being in a day... worrisome. Good catch wako. I'd be suspicious.

these guys are a scam.

they first caught my eye when i saw a bunch of brand new MBPs 17" for a buy-it-now price of only $400 - scamishly low, lol. upon further investigation, i found that there were a bunch of them - they have a ton of items for sale, but go ahead and look at the feedback: all from users with scrambled usernames. this particular one is even more obvious, after you read the actual feedback messages! lol

Yeah, then you look at their "items" they've sold before and they just read GPS??????????


Maybe I'll report them. I doubt it will stop anything though.

It's been removed, you should always report them, eBay are pretty good if they know about scams.
