Hello,

This eBay seller seems suspicious because alll his auction's pictures are taken from the web (for example the pictures of the CF Sunrise cartridge were lifted from the article in MSXCafé).

Someone on the MSXCafé won his Sony HB-F9 auction and he received an e-mail from another well known MSX eBayer telling him not to do anything as that auction was a fake.

Is it someone known on this forum ?

Signs you may be dealing with a scammer:

1. The seller is French
2. The seller has 1 feedback
3. The seller accepts only wire-transfers
4. The seller offers no buyers protection

I dunno, but I wouldn't gamble ~60 eurii on it...

Well, actually, he does not fit the #1 sign, as he is from the Netherlands Cool
But the 3 other signs are right on oO

BTW Sonic ... That's a cheap shot at the frenchs you made there !
I'm not french (I do live in France) but I'm pretty sure the frenchs are not the biggest scammers around !

I was once burnt on eBay and that was by an american ...

I didn't say the french were the biggest scammers around, I just mentioned he was french. I just generally dislike french people... Tongue (for no particular reason)
