Great buy on 50-200mm WR

I just bought a new 50-200mm WR lens off Ebay for $52.68 shipped. They still have a few left as I post this.

DARN!

"Blocked" in France ... could you cut & paste for me. I might have my sister buy/send it and I'll reimburse her, etc.

Merci, John Frog

I see this on the home page of their eBay store:

Hello,

We use an eBay approved 3rd party software to manage our inventory and prices. Unfortunately today we experienced a glitch and thousands of items were sold well below cost.

We have contacted eBay and have been instructed to cancel and refund all orders while an investigation is pending.

Home Buys Plus is an honest company and we are politely asking for you to not leave us Negative Feedback or Low DSR Ratings.
Your full refund will be issued within the next 24-48 hrs.

Thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter.
I doubt if they will honour any below-cost purchases.

Too good to be true

Just got the following email from HomeBuysPlus. Looks like no great buy after all

Yep, faceless online companies (or basement bargain shops) won't.
