    There are 54,438 listings on ebay with "Rolex" in the title. Some must be scams but who knows how many.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    If they ask for an email before you bid and want a western union money gram payment its a scam... but i have never seen a german ebay page.... interesting

    If my wife saw this seller she would want to order some beads from germany.... lets see, beads and Linhof Technikardans ... are you sure that Matus from Frankfurt just does not want to sell us beads? could not find the Linhofs

    You got me there photobymike - but the beads really are a bargin

    But as I mentioned - the cameras are gone. Somebody must have reported this to eBay. I did that once (I mean the reporting) and the items disappeared within few hours.
