Given that ebay scams do come up as a topic of discussion, I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this current auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem

I have checked out prev listings of Aaton auctions thought to be scams, but unfortunately, the images are no longer posted by Ebay.

Recently, I almost fell for a scam (LTR7 on Craigslist), but was saved by a thread I found here. It ends up that this character had used the same "I'm away on my honeymoon..." line on a lot of people.

Thanks, Jim

Jim,

The link you placed above is dead. If you were referring to this Aaton LTR 54, then I might be able to help you:

Aaton-LTR-54-Super-16-Camera-Pkg

I talked with the seller and the camera is not really an LTR 54, it has the serial number of C777 and is an LTR 7 with an LTR 54 motor attached. I think he said it was done by an outfit in Toronto called Image Gear:

The same seller has an auction right now for an Arriflex IIC, which is not really an Arriflex IIC, it is a IIB with a IIC door. When I pointed out to him that both of these auctions are misleading (to say the least), he tried to justify the way he listed them. I think that says alot about whether you want to do business with him.

My 2¢ worth,
-Tim
