    The feedback of the user is 100%. It appears the username was hijacked. The rightful user has no idea.

    Of course it's a scam. The fact that he implores you to email him directly indicates that in all likelihood he's hijacked someone's account in order to advertise. Plus he says he has "buy it now" price but there is no official ebay "buy it now" button.

    How do you report this to ebay? (I often miss obvious links but I didn't see a link for reporting this to ebay.)

    For that matter, what's up with ebay security? Seems like there have been a lot scams lately. Makes me very reluctant to use them (for buying or selling) when I hear/see all these problems.
    Oh, so they have internet on computers now!

    I did send an email to the user via the ask the seller a question. Hopefully he will get it and wonder why he is getting questions from me.

    The best part is that it's listed in "Health & Beauty > Wholesale Lots > Other"

    Since it's a "Health & Beauty" product, it might be easier for me to talk the wife into it...
    "There has always been a tension in conservatism between those who favor more liberty and those who want more morality. But what's indisputable is that Bush's 'compassionate conservatism' is a move toward the latter - the use of the government to impose and subsidize certain morals over others. He is fusing big government liberalism with religious right moralism. It's the nanny-state with more cash." -- www.AndrewSullivan.com

    They seem to be catching on by showing pics of the box and the opened contents. But I believe all the pics are of a 600 and not a 650.

    Here's an easy way to tell...The description and the specs all say Treo 600, NOT 650....too easy

    Reported... eBay is making it harder and harder to find the form to report auctions... The best way to report it is that the seller is demanding wire transfer only.
