Flood of XH-A1's on EBay

Some dealer just flooded EBay with about 40 XH-A1 cameras. They are all no-reserve with a starting bid of $.01. I realize the XH-A1S's just came out, but this guy's got a rating of "3". Anybody think this is legit?

No one here does. Not with a rating of 3.

Umm... 1 feedback as a seller for McDonald's coupons value $2.26 from 2 days ago. Not what one looks for when handing over big chunks of change

My momma always said...

If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

If you really want a new XH-A1, check the sellers listed through this forum. They'll be selling the old XH-A1 for as cheap as you can get it (now that the new A1S is out on the market), and you won't have to worry about getting scammed.

About three years ago cameras were coming up for sale like this all the time. I'm sure ebay cracked down on them which is why in the most part they have disappeared. This must have slipped through the net....

The flood was stopped.

The flood referred to in this post was taken down. This AM there were 60 XH-A1's, now there is 39.

Yes, but you'll need to be a member of this site for a bit longer before you have access. We had to take this action a couple years ago when DVINFO started gaining in popularity. It started to be a target for drive by scammers. Buying and selling here is best done between active members of the community. I hope you'll become just such a person!
