Default Too good to be true?

Found this on ebay while I was checking out if someone bought my PS Vita.

What do you guys think? Too good to be true?

But from the looks of it, bidding stopped at $1275. It stayed at that amount for a day until the auction ended.

You should go back and follow up if someone leaves feedback to him. What I do sometimes is add to watch, and if something went bogus, everything will disappear.

I have seen carbon fiber wheels, too good to be true, Nikon high end cameras, and within a few days he is non existent.

Another step is to report the seller, and Ebay know the trends, and close them real quick. Thats what I have done with the wheel and camera listings, and definitely, it was fraudulent listing.

I just searched his name, the account is still active, no feedback has been left.

Epig(ebay) went to some goofy shipping gig where for international ship for worlwide sale. the item goes to kentucky to get shipped internationally.
got burned on this once already. as a seller, i got roped into an international sale. i paid shipping to kentucky and the buyer payed to go from kentucky to their country of origin. buyer ended up wanting a refund, and ended up giving him the parts and shipping for free because it would have costed me more to ship the parts back to me than the original cost of the parts. NO NORE global shipping for me

So, what was the outcome?
I would think the same thing and be a bit weary about it but, with PayPal being on there sh*t nowadays its hard to lose.
I have had some great luck and found some amazing deals. But, I typically only buy big purchases in the US.

Right now, no one knows. The seller's account is still active but no feedback from whoever bought the 5ive. Not really an indication that it was fake but who knows. If it was the real deal, someone got a very very good deal.
