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

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!
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.
