If you look at the other items he's currently selling it must amount to somewhere near a hundred thousand dollars, very very suspicious!

Yes and most items have the don't bid graphic... which is a violation of the terms of service for posting an auction.... Amazing ebay is letting that go...

The real seller sold this A4000T last year. The same fraudster has been hacking into seller accounts and listing it--the picture and description were obviously pulled from the original listing. Don't bid on it!!!. Click on the report item link on the listing and report it to ebay.

Here is the original listing from the original seller:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultimate-Ami...vip=true&rt=nc

And here is the the thread about it with the reaction to the sale price and the fraud that followed. It's been popping up every few months since then:

Yeah, bad penny that one.

Nor is it an Ultimate except in waste of RAM. Ultimate means to me a PCI solution, a PPC, USB, and modern OS.

I'm quite sure fun is not what they seek.
They mainly seek money.

Hi
Yes they are after money sometimes. But if the Amiga got sold, there would never be a transaction, and if there were, the seller will get the money. How can they get money from doing this.

If they've gotten this far, surely they would know how to change the payment information inside the original seller's profile, wouldn't they?

Yes you are right, they could have done that.

They want you to contact them direct, my guess is you'd pay them through some way that couldn't be reversed. While most sane people wouldn't do the latter, they filter out those by making it look dodgy. They only need one gullible person.

It's the same reason why the Nigerian scams are so over the top.

This A4000 is re-listed again under different seller and definetly there is something wrong with that account. Every item is for sale for $1925, if you send email directly.
Check out all items for sale under username *mad*hatters*tea*party5052

When they ask for your bank routing number JUST SAY NO.

When they ask for your credit card info JUST SAY NO.

When they ask you to cash a check for them JUST SAY NO.

When they ask you to meet them at the corner of Main and Broadway to pick up your merchandise. Be sure to take someone with you. When a dodgy guy shows up and you ask him why he is an hour late and he says "Well I saw you but I didn't think it was you. You were supposed to be alone but you brought your girlfriend and that threw me off. Gimme the $200.00 and I will go get your merchandise. Its 2 blocks away at Angelo's house." JUST SAY NO.

I actually had that happen to me! An idiot actually thought I would fall for that. O M G

I keep reporting this and it keeps popping up in further listings.

Considering that I keep my Ebay listings on the up and up, this pisses me off.
