    Inspiration - Have I seen this before?

    This looks suspicious. Have I seen these pictures before?
    Poor description, no ebay history.

    Not sure... If someone bids and wins the unit I would be "Happy" to pick it up personally for them... ;)

    This description would be fine, if I wanted to buy Apeks TX50 regs. These scammers don't make much of an effort, do they? But still they succeed - sad!

    Well it's gone today! I had it on my watch list.

    It is interesting how ebay just pulls these fake listings without any notice
    or explanation. It's their dirty little secret that is not so secret.

    Well here is another that looks kind of familiar. Perhaps it is legitimate.
    Seller has no history, and no reserve price, and not very much information.
    I will email him for details although I don't expect a response.

    What else can they do?
    If they think it's a bad one they pull it.
    That's hardly a dirty secret.
    At least they are trying.

    Well they are getting better at it. What I meant was if you
    have an item on your watch list it just disappears as though
    it was never there. They have everything else automated onthe
    watch list to send notices to make sure you bid, but nothing to
    let you know an item has been deleted.
    The first time it happened it was a bit confusing.
    They could also make it a bit easier to report suspect phony listings.
    I have reported items in the past and I always have to search
    around the site to find an appropriate "person" to send the information.

    Like I said they are getting better,
    The listing of early today is gone as well, must have been phony.
