I'd do the "buy it now" now. $400?!?! On that like white on rice, me. Smells fishy tho'. Too cheap & too 'limited'.

Yea i would say its a scam. A buy it now price at $400. and the restricted to pre-approved bidders or buyers only. Thats usually a tell tell sign. No one in there right mind would sell that for $400.

OK I see what you guys are looking at. If you look in the header the buy it now is $4000.00 That's what I saw before and thought it was normal. The $400 might be a mistake in the posting of the auction.

The 'owner' has bought or sold nothing but gaudy jewelry & tacky clothes to date, so this looks like she may have been a victim of a phishing scam. Especially curious is the willingness to ship worldwide. I could be wrong, but this is just too odd.

Greece ??? Sounds a little fishy to me. When I went to check on the item this morning I got this:

Invalid Item
The item you requested (4334765303) is invalid, still pending, or no longer in our database. Please check the number and try again. If this message persists, the item has either not started and is not yet available for viewing, or has expired and is no longer available

Either someone bought BOTH, yes they were selling 2 of the same model, tractors or something was fishy.

It was a scam:smoking: When ebay finds out about it they shut it down and you get that message. If some one buys it it still shows for awhile.

Yea, I remembered that after I posted the message and didn't have time to correct myself. I'll probably be getting one of those "Your account will be suspended if you don't up date your information" e-mails soon. No bother, it will get sent off to eBay as soon as it comes in. nodeal

I had forwarded the auction to ebay fraud and just as I assumed
ebay notified the real owner of the account and they had no idea
about the auction.
he wanted your ebay user name so he could send a fake square trade email to you then your supposed to feel fine about sending him a wire transfer NOT!
