Thats the 2nd time that Rib has been on ebay. I bid £14000 (my limit) for it 2 months ago and missed out, and I think it sold for around 16000. Maybe his buy it now price should be 17600 not 7600.

I think the giveaway is the publishing of a different e-mail address for the Buy it Now and for fast answers to questions! That implies it's a hacked account, so clicking the usual "ask seller a question" wont work.

If it's straight, why restricted to pre-approved bidders only.

Its a scam. No ifs or buts. If we all email the account via ask seller a question he SHOULD realise his account has been hacked-the scammer obviously hasn't got full access to it or he'd have changed the email address.

Defo a scam it has every sign there is. But the 'don't use the Ask Seller Question' is the give away to anyone.

Send a message via Yahoo to Noddy
I got all excited the last time this was on. It was advertised as an "Avon Monte Carlo" (Whatever that is) and I was winning for a while. Got an Email from Ebay stating (words to the effect )that it was a scam and had been removed.
Trouble is we all like a bargain and there is always the chance that it is a "wronged husband" who has been told by a court to give his ex wife half of everything.
Some hopes?

The Monte Carlo has teak decking and a small table on the deck amongst other things. It does exist but its a well expensive Avon.
