check out the items for sale bu this seller.

all are top notch bikes going for a fraction of the price - notice the background is different in nearly all of the listings - smells of scam to me.

Very odd. Looks like you bid to buy it at the price in the listing?

Standard hacked ebay account scam, seen it happen before but last time they where using old amiga computers as the bait.

The slight giveaway is that they want you to contact outside of ebay rather then using ebays messaging system
