No Idea.. Looks like ebay is trying to head it off. This same ass wipe is the one who will typically list a FA*600 for $1000 but promise to cancel the auction if you go Through Ebay. A dead giveaway other than the price is his contact info is provided in a JPG rather than text and is ALWAYS a GMAIL address.

That's exactly what he demands. Ebay can't filter it out either because his Terms are actually JPGs rather than text. That's the giveaway with this guy, aside from the insanely low prices.

It appears eBay finally listened to us, and canceled the auction.

yep...unfortunately he'll probably cancel that account and he'll be back in business under another name in just a few hours. Hopefully not too many people get scammed by this guy...
