read the description before bidding...seems a bit interesting, but it looks to me like you'd have to pay $81,000 somehow after the bidding is up:

The "Item Specifics" are all wrong...

Imagine buying something for $80K on ebay???

There are many inconsistencies and contradictions in the listing. The seller does not seem to have a good grasp of how eBay works . . . seems odd he would choose to sell thru a venue that he/she is so confused about.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

In the "Item specifics", it's listed as a 600/4. Also at the top, it says.."Listed as Canon EF 600 mm F/4.0 Lens in category: Cameras & Photo > Lenses & Filters > Lenses". ;)

Descriptions:

My ebay Selling Limit is usd $5,000.00
I can not sell more than $5,000.00
But My hope is $81,000.00 selling price.
Please do not bid unless you do not wish to purchase
I will send the world UPS or DHL shipping specialist package
If you directly buy this lens, please come to south Korea.


I guess the buyer must pay outside Ebay due to the selling limit? Send $81K or more cash thru Western Union or go to S. Korea to pick it up?

I do not wish to purchase. I'm going to place a bid now.

EBay will catch on....maybe
really? did not set the reserve properly, and if he can't sell above $5k, how does he expected $76k "leftover" to be handled?
in the end, he can refuse to sell it - I bet he will

It's a scam.
Sorry but I am a suspicious git, having worked in fraud prevention for over a decade. The listing simply does not add up - even allowing for poor English = avoid!
I am happy to buy expensive stuff on E Bay (Canon 400 F2.8 L, Canon 300 F2.8 L IS, Canon 800 F5.6 L IS and a Canon 1DX) but this listing is just wrong!


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

I'm guessing since his limit is $5k, he'll send an invoice for the balance as shipping charges. I can understand why he is doing what he is doing, as ebay probably won't let him set the reserve at $81k, but it still doesn't make it right or that he'll get a buyer to pay what he wants. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets pulled in a day or so...

Pretty sure its against Ebay rules to demand further payment outside of the bidding - that and the broken English and the miss-listing of the item description screams scam.

(a good few people use deliberate broken English because it lets them "make mistakes" in their favour or say that "they don't understand" when they have to ship/pay)


Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

ebay counts the shipping charges towards the total as far as final value and fees are concerned.

Yeah, but this way he stays under his selling limit of $5k. The shipping charges don't count towards your selling limit amount.

I don't think it's a scam to scam the buyer, but just to circumvent his ebay selling limits. He's only sold photo equipment, and he probably got this thing in and is just trying to move it. There are lots of very high end equipment sitting in S Korea and Japan that are available, and this is (IMO) just another one.
