I guess you were right Sean the item has been removed. The only things on the site right now are DVD movies.

These are pretty easy to spot - they all have unbelievably low prices for either very-high-end or very rare equipment. In the description they have 'please e-mail me at xxx (usually,, or some other free and easy e-mail) for the 'buy it now' price.

DON'T EVER e-mail someone outside eBay for a legit auction! You can always use the 'send question' function within eBay to send the seller questions - there is no reason to go outside!

I did notice one bid on the item last night, hopefully the scammer didn't catch another one.

That's three times I've seen or heard of it. It'll probably come up again.
