    Well, we must be getting close cause I think this is the first "scam" auction for a 680. Only $250 too! lol

    Perhaps even better is the category they chose to put it in.

    Consumer Electronics > Car Electronics > Car CD Players > Other Car CD Players

    Mmmmm. . . descriptive.

    FYI, I searched that same category for "Treo" and found a bunch more auctions. All are either under "ajcharliemax" or "lisamarie83", list the price in rupees, and ship from some location in the US (Ohio for ajcharliemax and Florida for lisamarie83).

    Here's another one that look a little more realistic (although I'd never bid on it).

    Says the phone will ship on...drum roll please... November 29th!

    Just out of curiosity, I sent this guy a couple of questions:

    Q # 1) How can you sell a product that has not even been officially released to the public by the manufacturer yet? Palm, who makes this product, cannot even confirm that this product will be available to the general public (including you). I would LOVE to believe that you could guarantee delivery on this, but would like to know how?

    Q # 2) Why are there 31 purchase offers listed and they all show declined? I still need to know how you can offer this product when it has not been announced by the manufacturer. Please communicate with me as I am considering a possible purchase, but I need some kind of communication!!!

    1) are these truly unlocked GSM units?
    2) are they available in all the colors?
    3) can I buy more than 1?

    Please respond to my questions (this is my 2nd attempt), or I will assume that this is a scam offer and report it as such.

    Here was the reply I received:

    Subject: Re: Question for item #130045967800 - New Palm Treo 680 Colors, Camera, 312MHz, BT

    "I will only accept offers close to my buy it now. Offers are Declined because People are offering 100 and 200 dollar bids. I will not accept those. Yes it is unlocked to all GSM, QUAD band carriers. and yes i will have all colors available. And yes i would offer you a small discount if you bought two. Please be advised you will get this item before they are released from palm. Thank you "

    For what it is worth, this answer does not make ME feel any more comfortable about a possible purchase. Most scam offers are taken down right away, yet this one remains. His ebay store looks legit, too, but the price is too high, and the offer still looks shaky!!

    They haven't answered the all important question of how they are able to get hold of 680's when it hasn't been released

    So if several of us got together and bought all 20 from him, what kind of a discount would he offer? And would he ship them sooner than Black Friday? Heck, would he ship them tomorrow?
