    Have I been Taken?

    I just want your opinion I have been very careful with my purchases on eBay.But this time I am not sure. I bought X-Rite densitometer from"skybollin8" for $100. Not bad if I get it. But I see this same add again with the same wording from the same guy again on eBay. I don't know how to download the add from eBay maybe you can take a look at it?Ends at Jan/12/06.Should I already report to eBay to keep watch on this guy?

    This (http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...tem=7576747527) one? Looks like he may have hit the wrong button, or is confused about how ebay works... Note that the starting price for the new entry is the same as the winning bid for the previous one... Email him via ebay and see what he says.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Good Evening, Greg,

    I have no information on the item or the seller, but it might help someone else comment if you would simply give the Item Number.

    Thanks Bob
    That's the eBay number you indicated in your reply. The number is#7576747527.I contacted seller to find out if he has two units for sale. The only problem I have is his bad english sort of same as those eMails I received recently.

    There's a reply on the auction now:

    Q: looks like the same item as 7576747527, do you have more than one?
    A: Yes, I had 8, now, only 3 left. Also, a Easeco TD-90 too.

    Recently had the same problem, bought a lens for Nikon and a few days later the same item, including the same picture of a slightly used box showed up with the same starting price, was getting a little anxious but then my lens showed up in the mail. reread the listing and noticed that the guy had bought out a photoraphy store that was going out of bussiness and was selling off their inventory. Evidently he had several of each item.

    I received two eMails from the seller stating he had two more densitometers for sale. Maybe a good opportunity for someone else on APUG, one that does not have a densitometer to get one for $100.I feel terrible jumping the gun on this one.But after those eMails couple weeks ago I thought I should prevent someone else getting burned.
    Thanks again for providing support.
