    I think some dude is trying to run a scam on the EvilBay.

    I saw a hellborg pre a 250 and a 15inch cab listed. Starting price of $108.35(i think) and in the ad it said "BUY IT NOW FOR $1200 email [email protected]"
    So i did. When he replied he ask me for my full mailing address and my full name. He said then he "would start the deal with Ebay" Then i checked and the auction is GONE from Ebay.

    I have inquired futher as why he is selling so cheap. He says he is goin through a divorce. Then again asks for my maling address and full name.

    If you see this be AWARE!!!! Do not send some one sensitive information like this. As im sure has been said here before: If it seems to good to be true then it probably is.

    oh and it was listed under ebay user BowhuntersSupplyStore

    So i got a repsonse from him/her. Went to ebay and they had removed the auction. Same thing this time

    "Send me your name and your full address and i will start the deal with ebay"

    I really hope noone falls for it. The ebay store its in has ALOT of auctions posted for other high $ items in the same manner.

    Just wanted to warn folks feel me?
