    Bizarre. Money laundering front or something?

    I'm sure that's the guy who had the Agfa-ansco on "offer" for 1999.99. Now he's raised the price by nine hundred or so.
    It HAS to be some kind of scam. Establishing a "value" for goods about to be stolen? Regarding feedback: he might be sending it to himself from another email address?

    He's certainly under the influence of something...

    The ads list Canadian prices. Here are a few prices converted to US dollars:
    Pentax SMC 50mm f/2 $269.99
    Nikon EM $285.00
    Nikon F body, 69xxxxx, $499.99 (with an engraving, and no prism!)

    My favorite is a pair of Graphic 4x5 film holders for $153.00 US... I bought one of these recently for $15.00! Good luck with that.

    Checking his feedback, he only sells a few items a year. Some with low feedback scores could be suspect. Whatever floats his boat. Maybe I have millions in photo gear myself?

    I'd say report him to eBay but I doubt they care as long as they get their listing fee.

    A trip 35 for $229, crazy!
    If it was the more sought after black model, it is the normal price. But for a common chrome? Well, it's a earlier model. But still isn't worth that...

    He probably promised his wife he would sell all his cameras to keep her happy.
