Ultra-cheap PD150 offers in Ebay

Hello,

I recently found several sellers offering "brand new" PD150s for extremely low prices. I've also contacted one seller and he said that he is working in a company through what he is able to sell those cams for so low price. He also said he could sell one item for fixed 500 pounds if I want.

The strangest is that they have good feedback and I don't believe they are total scams. Have a look:

If you could give me some opinions, I would be happy to hear! Thanks.

This is a scam. Notice that he wants buyers to contact him directly. All his high end items end in less than 24 hours and the sellers history is for bracelets and small stuff. Catagory is 'Sports'. This same person was listing a FX1 that was pulled by E-Bay and replaced with a warning in red about the transaction.

Oh okay! Thanks for clearing this up. Sad to see how far people can go to get some money.

Someone selling bracelets and small junk has obviously had their account hijacked and now the scammer is using it, going for a big score.

Adam nailed it. This happens all the time on eBay. You'd think people would wise up to this and stop giving away their eBay identity, but if you reflect on the current world situation and the polls, well, you know there are a lot of stupid people out there waiting, eagerly (apparently) to be used or fleeced.

The old saying is truer than ever now, "caveat emptor!"
