Why would a guy sell all these on a one day auction? Sounds too good to be true.

I think I found the auction you are referring to. The guy's history is 17 transactions with 100% rating, but his last transaction was in March 2006. All of a sudden he has 63 pages of items for sale totaling hundreds of items all ending tonight!  Sounds like a scam to me!

Be careful with things like this, it's likely that his account has been taken over by bad people.

Try "contact the seller" and that *should* email him, not the naughty people.

If in doubt. Don't touch it. Whatever it is isn't worth getting ripped off over.

asy :D

ASY, You are right. I sent the guy an e-mail with questions, he replied and told me not to bid! He said his e-bay account was being used be someone else. E-bay sent me an alert warning me about it. When I went back to check the items later today, they were all gone. I guess the crook thought he could get away with it on Christmas day when fewer people are on duty at E-bay? Just like the old saying goes, "when it sounds too good to be true, it probably is"
