Is this one legit?

Recommended Posts

It's here. A few warning signs -- seller with no history, unclear location, short (3-day) listing -- but I'm not sure. The description sounds somewhat plausible, but still...

 

Does anyone one know whether this auction is ok?

As well as 0 feedback.

 

Smells like a scam IMO.

Item location - Baritone EUR, United Kingdom ??? I smell a rat.

 

Quite apart from the zero feedback and the short duration, how is it that an alleged registered business seller has no other items for sale? There could be a perfectly innocent explanation, but it looks to me like a sound case for calling Rentokil.

I've messaged to ask the serial number. Just for fun, like.

I don't know how he knows, but the vendor replied with this serial #: 30363

 

Plug that into Google, and it's the serial number of the concertina Keith B started a thread about selling in here. Feeling frisky, I emailed him back to say I recognized it as one sold on eBay last October, and could he tell me how much he paid for it. Of course, he can read that easily enough in KeithB's thread.

They only get away with it if no one reports them. Don't know what anyone else did, but I reported this listing with a link to this discussion, and the listing has now been removed.
