its a scam.

eBay should immediately ban any advert where buyers are given an email address for direct contact, sure sign the eBay account has been hijacked.

I suppose till you actually e-mail the guy for the price you don't know if it's too good to be true, but I still wouldn't touch it with bargepole.

Funny I spotted the Esoteric as well though eBay removed it a couple of days ago.....nice to see he's back and with some real bargains!!!

Perhaps we should send him millions of anon emails asking for details and flood his account.

This should do the trick.....a very usefull tool.

I reported this guy & his syndicate to e-bay & they're not interested. Basically if you contact him you get an e-mail address & a chance to buy ridiculously cheap equipment using Western Union. No doubt he then cuts & runs & that's the last you'll see of your money. AVOID!!!
