OT:Blatant Ebay Fraud Auctions

Ok, check these out. Only a real rube would bid on these. Note the
'seller' feedback on link#2. No Paypal- wire transfer only. Watch these
auctions and see the shills bid them up. They all have names like
'yadshid' or some such, with 0 feedback and a couple weeks max member
time on Ebay.
Watch the wrap...

If you're not the lead dog, the view never changes
Doubt yourself, and the real world will eat you alive
The world doesn't revolve around you, it revolves around me
No skeletons in the closet; just decomposing corpses

Looks more like a Chineese manufacturer trying to open a different channel of distribution.

No PayPal payments, private feedback on one and 12 satisfied on the same day from 12 "no longer registered users" on the other.
I don't think so.

That's the way I see it, also. Not enough money here.

Did you notice that all 12 users registered accounts on the same day?
Also ineresting was finding all of the bids were made in 283 seconds.

I'll eat my tuque if this isn't a clumsy rip-off attempt. He's got feedback that cost him almost nothing, has never sold a thing, and has 8 auctions for 4 different brands of expensive TVs listed that should sell for $thousands each and all the auctions close within an hour of each other. Five or ten thousand dollars US may mean almost nothing to you iggy, but it's still a fair bit of moolah in China.
Also, retail prices of these luxury products are not lower in China (especially Sony and Samsung (san1 shing1), and $55 US is way too low for shipping something that big/heavy to Europe (but it will sure cover *his* shipping costs with a healthy margin, if you know what I mean..)
But it doesn't look like anyone is dumb enough to bite (yet)..

Which explains the shill feedback, does it? There's more red flags in that listing than in a Chairman Mao parade.
