what's going on here???

So I'm surfing evilbay and come across this:

# 120054404612

looks cool, but.... when you click on the pics... It brings you to this very legit auction I saw a barely 4-5 days ago:

# 150055171567

the seller of the first auction has zero feedback... Says he's from montreal (around here) now... this seems too good to be true for me... but this thing reeks of a scam...

Re: what's going on here???

It's sad but true.... I've seen tons of copied ads... some with pics from several auctions. There was one that had a JPM and a couple pic were from one and the guitar looked mint... the other pics were from another auction and the guitar was missing the tone pod and knob, yet the scammer posted them together......... All I can say is buyer beware and if something doesn't seem right it probably isn't..... and never get involved with a second chance buy. If you do ask for more pictures of the guitar (item) and when you recieve those get some more and compare them.

Its scary that its getting to the point where you cant trust an e--bay listing.
Its been that way for awhile now ..
but still depressing.

Im in audio tv/film production and there is CONSTANTLY stolen goods on there.
