What i can say is i haven't seen these pictures before. Inpex so quite recent model. No video though. No evidence of scam anyway. tOMmy, do you have informations we don't have here? Because if not, it could be an interesting opportunity for someone here, besides of you, (not that i'm interested) seeing the low price right now.
I humbly invite everyone interested to visit my fb page : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Meraki-i ... 6541489594.

I remember those pictures cleary ... Jefferson, you've been sleeping on the job ;)
The T-shirt sitting on the bag
The 'unusual bag' without the Halo logo - the one designed by Lino that went out with a few late Batch 2's I believe. There was a debate about the bag at the time.

Seem to recall it was a flip, but the text is also a bit different this time

EDIT : Here we go ... it was the one that was flipped by Reuterstig

http://www.handpan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=10406

The text is snipped from there too - nothing about the baby this time

So, zero feedback, copied photos and text and no videos ...

SCAM

Well caught toMmy

It has been highlighted here too - Drumabob, you even posted in this thread today :lol:

I know it is the same one ... :giggle:
But my concern / comment ..stands.
If nobody reports, the sale will go on and someone will get scammed.
The problem i find with this kind of situation on ebay is that there is no specific category in witch report it that describes acurately the scam. Or am i mistaking ?..

This kind of bag was also sent out with some Batch 3 (i got that bag), i got the choice to either get that one or wait some time for more "normal" bags.

I do this - but you are right, the more people that take the time to do it the more likely it will be removed ;)

Click 'Report Item'

Then from drop-down menus ...

Report Category = Listing Practices

Reason for Report = Fraudulent Listing Activities

Detailed Reason = You suspect that a listing is fraudulent

It then shows 'The listing has items being sold without the owner's authorization. You didn't bid'

Click 'Continue' ... pat self on back ... good deed done for day :beer:

Seems that the item has been removed- that´s what it says when I call up the link.
