    I have seen this lens on Ebay before. This lens and other items pop up occasionally and are quickly removed. Something illicit is going on.

    I noticed the email instructions were in an image file and that caused some red flags. Just for curiosity sake, I emailed: I'll be bidding on 280763441800 before it was taken down.

    and got back:
    Hello,

    If you want you can buy it without biding trough eBay you will only have to tell me your full name and address and after that eBay will contact you with all the details about this deal.

    Thanks !


    So it's looking like a scheme to get people to part with their money outside of the Ebay system. (and perhaps to have an address to rob or use for identity theft)

    Obviously I didn't write back.

    My advice would be to not have any contact with these people. They could possibly get your email address or other info by just your contact and use it illegally against you. Best thing is to just report the item to eBay to have it removed as quickly as possible.

    There's usually also a heap of other stuff, such as Phillips Cameras.

    S/he also posts heaps of 'Blad digital bodies.

    I got sick of reporting them...
