His feedback is interesting too - his score states 220 (100% positive) yet when you click on his feedback it lists several negative feedbacks?!?!? I dont understand how that can be - maybe an Ebay error?

Edit - I see why now - no negative feedback in the last 12 months.

I'm not convinced this seller is a fraudster. I've got a feeling he's been browsing B&O and seen an ad offering outboards for peanuts with free delivery anywhere in the world (sound familiar?) and thinks he can make a nice commission as the middle man.

He'll be even more gutted than when he crashed the car he just sold on ebay when he gets www.muggedoff.co.cc

Should be interesting to see if paypal refund the buyer when said o/b never turns up.

Long time since he's sold something though-I wonder if his account has been hacked.
