    Ebay Silvia scam?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I started bidding three days ago on Ebay for a one-month-old Silvia plus accessories in North Ryde, Sydney. Anyone else notice that listing?
    My bid got trumped almost immediately -- in just two days, bids had reached almost $640.
    Then I got a note from Ebay saying all bids had been withdrawn - the item was reported lost or stolen. Bad news or what? Seems a bit suspicious.
    Doesnt really worry me since Id changed my mind about the Silvia for now, following purchase of a used Pavoni Pro -- but it seems very odd indeed!

    It could have been worse I suppose,
    you could have laid out your cash to this charlatan, then have it *reported lost or stolen, with your cash being subsequently lost or stolen *>:(
    Aahh evilbay, theres a sad story at every mouse click :P
