    Well that's the modus operandi of scammers, isn't it? They hit as many targets as the can at once in hopes that at least one of them would be so gullible as to bite.

    Now a CON artist would operate in a very different manner

    I know of at least one delightfully sneaky trick that Sean has up his sleeve for dealing with problem members - he is indeed a creative artist.

    but- WHAT IF the guy really DOES live in spain - and the original listing from ebay happens to be his..? where does that leave honest people??

    I guess i'm lucky - but i've never been scammed well- in a significant way- I even sent a western union transfer to costa rica once for a Rollei 6000 camera body that was on ebay - zero feedback too. Got the camera and it was a sweet gem for an unreal price because nobody wanted to bid on it out of fear... just goes to show you that a little trust can take you a long way.

    He just emailed me last night with the 58 Hexanon with finder that I am seeking. I guess he hasn't gotten back to me because there isn't one currently on e-bay.

    Got the same email from the guy in Spain. He's still working here.
