I think the (0) feedback and the "not a registered user" should tell you all you need to know about this auction.

You get what you pay for. My father used to say.."you never get somethin' for nothin' ". :)

These eBay scams are pretty heavy these days.
If it seems too good to be true, ..., it probably is.
Don't be a fool. Don't feed them anymore information by emailing them.
You can take their email address that they post in the auctions & feed that to the spammers tho! :lol:
I report about 3-4 dozen week. I just wish I could be on the eBay payroll for doing their job, ...

If it involves pre-approval, I bet buy it now is simply for the down payment.
Anyhow, shady indeed.

No, they'll try to talk you in to performing the transaction off-ebay, or using some other special "escrow" service (which is usually a scammer site itself).

These ads show up on Craigslist.org as well. Just this morning I could've picked up a cherry '67 Camaro for $6k...

Could be some damn Nigerians. Internet scams are the #1 industry in that country.
