I'm talking to this guy via email and he says he is the original seller. I looked and the guy is from Poland and isn't registered with Ebay anymore. I'm just having fun with this guy and I'd thought I'd share with the group. :lol: :headshake

The same exact thing happened to my sister and she was forwarding me the emails asking if I have ever heard of such a thing. You have to admit some of the scams out there are pretty impressive especially the page they email you. It matches ebay perfectly!
So what have you been telling the guy?
