i agree. a F65 for 7600$ is impossible. this camera cost how much? 60k, right?

he has built up quiet a nice 100% feetback with 5$ items.....

 

we should report this to ebay

Probably just a scam.

 

Yeah, most likely that account was hacked. "Unfortunately we cannot process PayPal payments for a moment." Ha! Not to mention that the rightful owner seems to be mostly selling beret patches, not cameras or other very expensive equipment.

i am asking all of you with an ebay account to report this item as fraudulent. the more complaints they recieve from different users the more likely it is they take action.

 

the seller also wont provide a serial number...

to be fair,  i do not like paypal either. it's a criminal bunch of gangsters and a monopol. i once lost nearly 3000$ due to a scam and they blocked my account for "suspicious activity".

altought i was the vicitm. and since my creditcard is registered in their database i can not even open a new account. another issue is that they now stopped the guestaccounts option. one can not pay with a creditcard anymore without being forced to open an account. they used to allow people to process creditcard paymentds thru paypal without registration. so i am very limmited on ebay as well because most (99%) of the sellers ask for payment thru paypal.
