    Saw this on Ebay today;

    Clicky

    Something doesn't seem right with this. The seller has built up positive feedback by selling low value items and then acts as a middleman for 10 x £1800 plasma units... hmmm, I smell a scam :rolleyes: .

    Yead I'd say its scamtastic.

    Although they have sold a few phones and have been buying/selling for over a year. If it was me though I wouldn't trust that much money unless I could pickup with cash.

    the best way to buy that item is by credit card.that way you are fully protected if the deal goes ti*s up.it does look a good deal.it would be intersting to know if they experience any problems with it.i suppose you could keep an eye on his feedback.i'm quite sure they would soon give some negitive feedback if anything was wrong

    That's a lot of money to lose..don't risk it.

    If the deal was £500 you would think it was obviously a scam, but because it is not too far off the cheapest price at the moment you think it may be genuine, I would be suprised if it was.

    They could just be using a sample photo for their listing but the unit in the photo looks like a PE30 not a PV500 as evidenced by the vertical slats in front of the speakers...
