They copied the Pantheon Steel auction description :hmm:

"A portion of the proceeds of this sale will go to charity." :doh:

This belongs in Buyer Beware alright. It contains an image with text that is attempting to circumvent ebay's automatic searches for policy violations. "Buyer" beware indeed. :(

Yea great job every one, all of those scam postings are now gone, I even wrote pantheon steel this morning to inform them of their pygmy fraud. People need to be very aware when buying a handpan off ebay!

Saw that one too along with 3 PanArts that were most definitely scams. I reported the 3 PanArts and I contacted the seller only to receive a spam email about how to send payment... which wasn't even the question I asked. Such a shame that people are taking advantage of those in search of these magical instruments.

Just a thought, whenever people (mostly Mudman :) ) post how to report scams its really useful for everybody, could we make it a sticky topic within buyer beware? So then A.) Mudman doesn't have to keep repeating himself and B.) we can all report it right away

Just an idea :D
