Too Good To Be True

Hello, I am Jay Martin (j4vice)
I always wanted a JEM. I won an auction on **** for a WHITE JEM with GOLD parts. But I got it for like $18.00 (GBP 3.99 )??? I know, if it's too good to be true, then it is/isn't. The catch is, it costs $220.00 to ship from CHINA. They do take PAY PAL among a bunch of other crazy payment methods. I was almost ripped-off on **** a month ago for $808.00. My question is to any JEM FORUM readers, "Should I do this?" I mean it sounds ridiculous. Also, the seller has three other JEMs available, all for a starting bid of $19.00 U.S. I have a PAY PAL account for no more than this 'transaction' so the most I can get ripped for is about $280.000 U.S. Here is this person's **** page, 5000+ items including alot of classic guitars. Sort the items from highest price and you will see at least three JEMs including a ROOT-BEER, a BLACK wtih PINK pick-ups, and a couple more. And the highest price one is $27.99. What's wrong with this picture?
I am NOT advertising or promoting this, I am questioning this **** site.....
