I dunno if he's a victim or not. He has multiple listings doing the same thing, including a Generac 22k generator that he's already ended 'cuze it's no longer available.

Want a HP 3458A for $6.50?
There is an odd posting of a Tek 570 vacuum tube curve tracer on eBay at the moment.The starting price was $2 and bids have got up to $11.50. This price is surely a steal, if true. Oddly enough, though, one of the posted photos suggests that the eBay bids will be ignored and that the "Buy It Now" price is $3000 but a different organisation has to be contacted for this. What is going on and is this some kind of scam?
(See the second image for the scam.)
These come up faster than they can be squashed.
(Of course, I reported it, so it may be gone already when you look.)
Poor ratbike_nl — probably just another victim.
Be careful with your ebay passwords...
