Indeed you have ... the old Red Velour hang
For any newbies, its a scam and will be taken down shortly

I don't understand why they keep hacking accounts and doing this unless they are actually hooking people occasionally.
Otherwise, why bother ?
Perhaps they 'harvest' the ebay ID's of anyone who bids before it is removed, contact them afterwards and every now and again someone falls for it ...

I wish the people who bid on these things new about this forum. I met a guy here in Japan about a week ago who said he won a PANArt Yu Diao on ebay and was waiting for it to show up....He paid by bank transfer :x I feel bad for the guy. I gave him my email addy and asked him to send me the pics that he recieved of it. If he actually sends 'em to me Ill post them so all can be warned, unle it was actualy legit :shock:

Reported to eBay as "avoiding eBay fees" - the only thing they take seriously...

Same one I've reported at least twice. Different eBay seller name each time but always the same photo.

I guess that may be the answer ... it is working sometimes ... that sucks big time

Yes, the seller is a complete ~@:,./£$%^ , but TBH any buyer from an ad like this also needs to take some responsibility and learn some common sense if they can't tell there is some sort of fraudulent activity going on. The hardest thing to do sometimes is to protect people from themselves ... sometimes they only learn the hard way.

Would be interesting to find out if the guy you met bought from this same ad ...
