Yeah,

That's a fraud. Been going on for a number of years now. Anytime you see something like that, run the other way.

That has got to be a scam. In fact it looks like a pic from an older sale from a member of this forum. Tim Carroll if I'm not mistaken. Ebay really needs to do something about this.

Anytime you see this picture, or any variation of it, it's a scam:

I sold that camera over a year ago and the scammers copied the pictures and description before the auction was over. The pics still had my watermark on them the last time I saw the auction posted.

Hmm. They cleaned up that one pretty quick, but there's still a Sachtler tripod listing with the same jpg image...
