As eBay listings go away after a few weeks, please copy and paste the auction's wording here!

It sold expensive for a fake. I may consider selling one of mines for that money (well, a little more, as mines are real :D )

Now I am getting confused: WHAT sold? The image of a mic (i.e. a fraudulent, non-existent product) or a real mic that looks like yours?

oops.. for some reason I get the impression that the auction had ended with a winner paying around 1600€. Now it's removed... well, at least they took measures.

Folks,
This thread is utterly confusing (at least to me):
Are we talking about fraud, where an illegitimate seller tried to scam for money? Or was this a legit eBay auction, but the seller conveniently grabbed someone else's pictures to sell his (legitimate, real) microphone?

I'd like to have clarity from the threadstarter, Oleh Malyy, and from the eBay buyer of a supposed U77, jpalden.

Thanks,

I don’t know
Seller used my photos of my microphone.
This microphone is with me now and not for sale.
I asked seller why he use this photos. Without any reply.
I discribed situation in ebay and some forums as attantion.

But I don’t know the true. Maybe that is scam. Or, maybe, seller only used photos.
Sorry, i don’t know where is the true
but want to know the result too.

And....? Did you receive the microphone that is described in the auction, regardless of what the picture shows?

The end is:
it was a scam, seller pretended to own the microphone but fortunately I've got my money back (due to the fact I wired on a Saturday and called it back Monday morning after getting an alert from ebay). So many many thanks to Matti Lehtonen who reported to ebay, without him I would have lost € 1.442,-
Never again I will use ebay without PayPal!!!
Matti, I owe you one!
