Any of you guys have an idea .. how come two sellers are selling a used Canon EOS 5D Mark II for just $1100..

http://www.amazon.com …er=&colid=&cond​ition=used (external link)

One of them shows 96% +ve feedbacks out of 8393 ratings. Too good to be true since it is half the price of what others are asking for the used 5D II body. What do you guys think?


5D II | Xt | 17-40 f/4 L | 70-200mm f/4 L IS | Sigma 50mm f/1.4 | Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 | Kenko Extension tube set | 580Ex II.

Good to know.. probably the second one with $1100 simply tried to match the deal with the first one automatically.

I think it's fishy. Just tried to buy it and check out. Here is what comes up after I entered my shipping address:

This item cannot be shipped to the address you selected. (Learn more.) You may either change the shipping address or remove the item by clicking Delete.

It's obviously not a mistake... since the same seller sold one for $1,100 this morning and is selling one for $1,200 now.

Hrm. Interesting!

One thing I don't like about Amazon Marketplace is that they seem to have little concern for scams. It's brutal trying to find a link on Amazon to report a suspected scam. At least eBay makes it easy to report a scammer.

It's as if they don't care whether scammers use their site or not. :confused:

Repeat after me.
If it sounds too good to be true, it is.
Now keep repeating until it sinks in.

When I asked him.. "How come you want to sell it for such a low price when the NEW or even used prices are at least $3100?"
Guess what .. No response.
