Perhaps a scam?

I was browsing Ebay last night and came across this...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=16048&item=3688571 536&rd=1

No feedback, And just registered on July 13. I read the description over and over, and it doesn't hint at being just for a picture, or just the box or whatever(you know what im talkin about). I thought about picking it up for what its at, but im kinda skeptical. He doesnt list payment options, or even shipping options. He does, however, list an email. I emailed him with no response

"I have cash in hand and will give you whatever you want for it."

^^^He didnt respond to that so i dont know what to think...What about you guys?

Heh. This si the email i recieved after i got home from work. You guys figure it out. Lame attempt.

Hello!

The item is brand new unused and available for sale. The Gun is fantastic it works perfectly...you will love it for sure. No damages or scrathes. It comes with all papers and accesories and also the original box. You will also get a tank and a hopper: 3000psi HPA tank (refillable) and Electronic VL Evolution II Hopper, both top of the line and unused.

I bought it from London 2 weeks ago from a discount store and never used it because I didn't have the time to play. Now I need some cash and I decided to sell it.


I am overseas in London, UK now I have some business here and also this is where the item is located. I do not take PayPal because I am not registered and I am not very comfortable with them.
I am a beginner in this kind of online deals so I can only accept Western Union or MoneyGram wire transfer. I used them before for a few times and they always served my interests in a professional manner and helped me gain buyers.


Shipping : UPS 2 day air insured my expense.
Shipping and handling taxes to your location are paid by me.


I accept US Dollars payment. My price is US$850. Let me know your max price so we can close a deal today!

Thanks
Please reply instantly!



Whatever

Makes sense to me. Not used enough. Hell its a risk but if it works out you just scored yourself a hell of a deal, if not you get you get your money back minus the escrow/3rd party fee.

LOL, damn scams...

I've done my part as I have reported what seems like at least 1 auction a day on there. It's getting out of hand really...

That e-mail is kinda funny in that he states he's from London yet his location in the auction is Alaska? So many more descrepencies I don't want to venture into them...

I hate people like this....why cant they just find a job and work for there d@mn money. Hopefully no one gets scammed but more then likely someone will...I feal bad becuase that poor guy is going to lose a lot of money. I guess all we can do is try to keep an eye out for these and do what we can to stop them.

That is a scam. Report it to e-bay. It' actually is part of a Nigerian scam and has been going on with paintball equipment for nearly a year. Never, ever send anything western union, especially oversees.
