Even better... but also worse: I got an email from a friend directing me to yet another beautiful instrument on eBay, but it was already gone. I thought it must have been the same as Bill E. noted, but for some reason I checked, and my friend's cut-and-pasted URL had a different item number than Bill's link. Said friend then checked back to the original photos (from the real auction), and said yes, they're the same pictures.
Dang, just over an hour!! Not bad!
So it looks like there were at least two attempted scams using the same original auction for text and pictures, on the same day, and maybe within an hour or less of each other. Did members here alert eBay on both of them? Is someone not on Concertina.net also looking for and reporting such frauds? Or is eBay getting the jump on us by doing their own monitoring?
Nice to know they're being taken down quickly. Not so nice that they seem to be springing up almost as quickly. And still disturbing that the perpetrators aren't being stopped by action -- e.g., police action -- outside of eBay.
