    Sanchi,

    THERE IS NO ITEM.

    It is a scam.

    The Seller's account is hijacked. His/her identity is used to advertise a gmail/yahoo/hotmail email account that you need to contact. The owner of this email account will tell you to transfer money in some highly difficult to track fashion.

    THERE IS NO ITEM.

    You will lose your money, the seller will not be accountable as their account has been hacked.

    THERE IS NO ITEM.

    There is no access to Seller history as the account is hacked.

    THERE IS NO ITEM.

    Just look for: Rare/desirable item. Unbelievably good price. Short sale time (24 hour). Inserted jpeg image rather than eBay fonts in the information section. Copy of photos from other sales. "Contact me first at the following email address" requirement.

    Oh, and by the way, THERE IS NO ITEM.

    But... but... but... he had FIVE of them!!!

    Seriously, I can't understand how anyone could fall for such a poorly constructed scam. Is critical thinking a lost art?

    OK.
    so discounter_shop is innocent?
    As well as the photo store in UK which website was hijacked some months ago
    with very low DSLR offers (over the weekend)?

    Critical thinking, like all thinking, is not an art but a skill. It doesn't seem to be taught much anymore, in fact the word "critical" has a negative connotation. If you want proof of this, just watch some TV commercials. They're there because they work (commercials), but if critical thinking was common, there would be no point in making the commercials as they wouldn't sell anything except to retarded folk.

    The trouble with common sense is that it's not too common...

    It all sounds about as goofy as one of those Prince-of-Nigeria e-mails.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
