...You alert eBay and let "us" know how it goes.
I need support on this one.The more they know people are on to it,the faster they will act..I know this from experience.You should alert them to before some poor schmuck gets taken in.
I just tried to call and they are closed.
... Hey, presto!
Looks like you achieved your goal all by your lonesome.
Next time, don't doubt your own abilities!
Some poor Yank stood a chance of getting ripped off and just think how you would have felt had that happened.You wouldn't have been able to live with yourself Soxes.
Some people like second order distortion in their tube amps,some people like honesty in their tube amps. I like honest!
Hate to be cruel but it takes two for a scam to work.
Everyone is looking for a deal and there is nothing wrong with that. But the poor schmuck that falls for this type of scam deserves what they get IMO.
This same scam artist is listing an ARC REF2 preamp for the same $2K price. I would love to score this preamp for $2K. I know better. They are worth far more than $2K and it is obvious this is a scam. The same scam artist has all kinds of high dollar ARC gear for a mere $2K.
Greed is what makes the scam work. The individual that falls for the scam has placed greed above common sense. As the old saying goes if it sounds too good too be true that is because it is too good too be true.
At least the scam artists on eBay are more sophisticated about it than the scam artists on Audiogon hi-jacking a legit eBay account. The Agon scammers just set-up a new account, overseas naturally, zero feedback and insanely low prices.
BTW I had the opportunity to buy a pair of ARC REF300 on eBay last summer for a mere $4.2K. Second chance offer since the winning bidder at $4.6K did not go through with the sale. Wonder why? Amps were located in Spain. Just a quick check of the sellers feedback showed no high dollar sales of any kind, all previous auctions were in the $100 or less range, no high end audio of any kind, and now suddenly a beautiful pair of REF300 for cheap. Hmmmmm............ I bid on this auction just to have some fun knowing it was a scam. Several days later I got the email alert from eBay.
He also had a beautiful pair of K-horns,the expensive teak wood ones of course and an MC275 with original KT88 Gold Lions,anything you wanted,2000 dollars with free shipping.
is not as high as yours, demonstratively.
Maybe the alert worked.
