Says "Don't Bid Without Contacting via Personal Email First"


Here Is The Response.... Item Taken Down Immediately After. Beware!

Hello,

The buy it now price for the item including shipping is $2,000. Transaction will be handled by eBay, so we can both be protected and able to exchange feedback after transaction is successfully closed!
I will offer a 30 days inspection period for the item, so if by any reason you are not satisfied with it, you can return it against a full refund!
If you do want the deal, just please email me your full name, full shipping address, eBay user ID and I will start the transaction through eBay. You will be after contacted by eBay with further instructions on how to safely complete this sale.
 
Thank you,
Robert

I emailed the guy via eBay and told him --- "You are not selling an Alembic Further for $2,000." ....

This has turned up 2 or 3 times n the past few months. When you click on the seller's other items, there is a list of great guitars - 1950's Les Pauls, Strats and Teles, etc. all with a $2K BIN.

Bill, tgo

I don't think it's advisable to send messages to addresses in these kind of listings... (at least not from your main email account)

Used A Scarcely Used Account To Email. Ebay Should Shut This Guy Down.
